    Riverside Gun Club Historical Military Rifle Match
    29 September 2018 – 0900 hrs.
    Historical military shoot, is designed for original military rifles. RGC is offering the opportunity to compete veteran firearms against each other. Barrels, triggers, sights & stock must be service grade. No bedding or special parts allowed (Original Scoped Rifles, may be used). Firearms with same contour commercial parts can compete. Extra points for original rifles.
    Four classes of rack grade military rifles:
    1. Civil War – 1885 Era
    2. Pre War thru WW 1 era
    3. World War II thru Korea era.
    4. Vietnam to Present (no flat tops or match rifles)
    May use more than one rifle, ideally to have them fill one of the above classes. Example: using a (German K98 Mauser and Soviet SVT 40 semi auto), both would cover #2 WW II class. If firearms fall into different classes, they be grouped higher. Example (M1 rifle and AR 15), would be placed into #4 Vietnam class.
    First event – Scoring Steel - Using 10” round target at 100 yards. 15 rounds course of fire. 5 rounds prone, sitting and offhand. Time limit is five minute per position. All hits on steel, will count for score.
    Second event – Sniper. Team event. Using four inch steel. Have three sighter shots on clays. Select spotter and shooter; they get three rounds to hit designated color targets, no time limit. May use period binocular or original scope optics May shoot off ammo can, helmet, pack or rolled blanket from prone position. No bench rest type stands or spotting scopes. Score based on number of hits.
    Third event – Assault. Team event. Shoot two large, four small steel silhouettes and 10 clay targets. Fire at 100 yards in 30 seconds. Throw grenade to move; where grenade lands, shoot again 30 seconds. Repeat as needed. Only three grenade throws allowed. Unlimited ammo. Any missed targets, subtracted from previous scores.
    Shooters who do not feel comfortable in the prone; may use sitting position in all events.
    Must have three shooters per class, to award trophy/prize.
    No Armor Piercing ammunition – Only semi-auto fire allowed in match.
    Machine Gun Demonstration afterwards. Belt fed guns limited to 10/15 round cheater belts.
