Being an SBR, or short-barreled rifle, Constantine put a Sig Sauer MCX stock on it and, as a big fan of red dots, he added a Trijicon SRO. Lastly, he added a sling and a Krebs Custom Mark VI Enhanced Safety. "It makes it a whole lot easier to operate with your index finger. It makes it buttery and smooth," he said.

On his belt was a G-Code mag pouch for extra rounds, and he competed dressed head to toe in a blue Adidas tracksuit and white mask.
