Historic Service Rifle Matches showcase the abilities of a diverse range of historic firearms over a half day competition. Similar to that of a CSR League meeting, these events offer multi-positional shooting, but typically at distances of 100-300x.

The Course of Fire is based on military practices at 100, 200 and 300 yards, shooting from standing, kneeling, sitting and prone. There are no Run Downs! Targets will be a Fig 12 at 100 yds, then an NRA DP2 at 200 and 300 yds. The DP2 is a black & white target similar to a Fig 11, but will offer better target acquisition and sight picture than a standard brown/black Fig 11.


British pre 1955 Service Rifles, under SR (a) (see CSR Handbook), in three classes. In addition, there is an All Comers Class for all Foreign Service Rifles

  • Classic: SMLEs
  • Veteran: No 4s / No 5s
  • Veteran Optic: No 4T
  • All Comers Iron: Foreign Service Rifles
