to wooden-stocked long guns used in military service by any nation prior to
1961. Iron sights and/or peeps acceptable as long as representative of a
standard service configuration. No scopes or optics of any
kind. Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94,
Thompsons, Garands, M1 Carbines, Trench Guns (slugs only) and the ever-popular
Matchlock are all good candidates. As long as it was standard military
issue. You wanna shoot your civil war musket and try to obscure the targets
for the rest of us? Fine, as long as you can load and shoot 10 times in
And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser. Match Director has final say! Loaner rifles may be provided with advance notice.
Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report – May 2018
Five shooters ignored the forecast and blasted the raindrops off the firing line with a veritable variety of vintage rifles at the May Woodstock Match at Sanner’s Lake. The Enfield No. 4 Mk1 of Paul S naturally thrived in the damp, gloomy, English-like weather, taking the top spot in both the individual and combined score categories with an outstanding 100-2X individual (just one X shy of the Woodstock all-time high single score!) and a killer 292-7X combined. Ron F’s M1 Garand was right behind him with a strong 284-4X to take second place combined along with a 96-2X to take third place individual. Joe M found that boutique ammo is the ticket to success with his Swedish Mauser, taking third place in the combined category with a 276-3X. See the May Match Report for all the details. Congratulations to all the shooters for putting up superior scores through driving rain, whipping wind and fogged up glasses...in other words, real-world conditions! Next match will be on June 21st; hopefully the weather will be warmer (and drier) by then...
