Military Woodstock

Restricted to wood stocked military rifles in use by various nations prior to 1961.  Iron sights and/or peeps ok.  No scopes or optics of any kind.  Krags, Springfields, Carcanos, Mausers, Mosins, Winchester ’94, Thompsons, Garands and the ever-popular matchlock are all good candidates.  As long as it was 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 10 minutes!

And no, a 1996 Winchester model 70 is NOT allowed even though it has military roots with the Mauser….Match Directors have final say, and will loan you a rifle if needed.

Current Match Report

Sanner’s Lake Woodstock Match Report - 6/15/2017

A reasonably warm and pleasant afternoon resulted in another great turnout for the June Woodstock match at Sanners Lake, with two relays required to accommodate all the classic war relics freed from deep storage to do battle for top shot of the month.  Rifles ranged from a vintage SMLE Enfield and an original Trapdoor Springfield to a more “modern” Swiss K31 and a pair of M1 Garands.  All of the rifles (and shooters) stepped up to the plate and performed admirably, with all shots on paper (most of them in the black!), and no problems or malfunctions of note.  Jesse W and his Swiss K31 came out of nowhere to squeak by Dick C and his M1, with Jesse scoring a 275-6X to take top combined score with his tie-breaking six X’s.  Just two points behind them was Paul S and his ’03 Springfield taking third place with an excellent 273-5X.  In the individual score category, Ron F and his M1 kept getting better and better, putting it all together on the last string with a superb 97-2X to take the top slot.  Ron was followed by Dick C and Jake S posting matching 95-1X’s.  See the June Match report for all the details.  Congratulations to all the shooters for stepping up and giving the old iron a chance to shine once again! 

Next match is on 20 July, see you there...
