Our Vintage Rifle match will be held at the Birchwood Recreation and Shooting Park, Chugiak, AK on September 6 with a sign up time of 9:00 AM.

This will be a 40 shot plus sighters fun match on 5-V targets. Equipment rules will require iron sights and a rifle model in existence before 1945. To keep in the spirit of the vintage rifle we will discourage use of target type rifles, specifically rifles such as Model 70 Winchester or M-14 (The M-14 would also not qualify because it's too new). So bring out your old M-1, lever rifle, 6.5 Swede, or the "Safe Queen". Remember, part of the course of fire will require rapid fire strings of 10 shots so some rifles will have to be single loaded after the magazine is exhausted. But it's all in fun. A traveling trophy donated by Craig Parker will be awarded to the winner and all participants will be invited to The Pizza Man in Eagle River after the match. When checking targets be careful because your score card will be the target.

Hope for good weather and come on out for the Vintage Rifle Match.
