"Cowboy Lever Action?"
My gun club conducts a competition called Smallbore Cowboy Lever Action. It is sanctioned by the NRA and follows their rules for the smallbore(rimfire)match. Rifle must be rimfire and tube fed. We shoot steel chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams at 40,50,75 and 100 meters. We also shoot smallbore silhouette on another range at the club. Most of us shoot Marlin 39A's, but I want to buy a Silverboy for the Cowboy Lever action. Anyone else interested in a small bore thread or section?
40,50,75 and 100meters? Is that the same ranges used for "Hunter Pistol"?
Cowboy Lever Action Silhouette Rifle - Listed below are the three classes of Cowboy Silhouette Rifles. The below listed rules apply to all classes of rifles. (The intent of these rules is to establish a match for common hunting carbines and other lever action rifles. The match is focused toward shooters who enjoy shooting hunting arms and do not want to make the investment required of other specialized types of shooting competitions.)
1. Rear sights may be open sights, receiver or tang sights manufactured for the rifle they are mounted on. Front sights must be a post or bead, may be hooded or if interchangeable may use post inserts only.
2. Barrels must be original or may be relined. Original barrels re-bored to a larger caliber are allowed. Any safe trigger is allowed. Stocks must be of original configuration.
3. Ammunition may be loaded with smokeless or black powder, using jacketed or cast bullets, with or without gas checks. All bullets must be flat nosed suitable for tubular magazine use. Any cartridge causing target damage or deemed unsafe may be banned.
4. Firing period will include a 30 second ready (loading) period, and 2 minutes for 5 shots. Ammunition must be loaded through the tubular magazine.
5. Binoculars may be used for spotting. Spotting scopes or stands may not be used. No shooting jackets, shooting vests, or gloves will be allowed. NRA rule 6-9 concerning wind flags will not apply.
