Wild Bunch rifles

Recommended Posts

Just read the July 2020 updated Wild Bunch hand book and have a question regarding accepted rifle models.  Are model '92 acceptable in Wild Bunch or not?  From the way it is stated, it looks like only '73 or '66.  I happen to like my '92, but may need to go back to my '73 if that is the change.

RIFLE REQUIREMENTS

 

Rifles or carbines used in the main and team matches must be original or replicas of lever or slide action rifles manufactured during the period from approximately 1860 until 1899, incorporating a tubular magazine and exposed hammer. Rifles with box magazines may not be used. Rifle must be chambered in a pistol caliber of .40" or larger.

 

 

Your 92 is WB legal.

 

Any SASS legal main match rifle is legal for WB as long as it is at least .40 or larger caliber

Thank you.  Just the mention of '73 and '66 made me question a change.  I suggest an improved re-right in the next revision.  I have been shooting SASS for some time, but it has been a long time since I checked the wire.  Thanks again.

I'm confused by your statement.  The first paragraph on page 9 in latest WB SHB, Rifle Requirements, is what Sedalia Dave is quoting.  The date range given makes it inclusive of all rifles that meet the stated mechanical and caliber specifications.  Where are you finding a mention of '73 and '66 that led to your question?

Ozark Shark, on page 10, under lever action rifles the hand book states a '73 and '66 can be exchanged.  We all have our favorites but only those two listed it would seem they are the only ones allowed.  The model '92 is a  lever action rifle as well.  I question why the '73 and '66 are singled out.

LEVERS

...

 

The exchange of an 1873 rifle lever with an 1866 rifle lever is allowed.

out of curiosity - why would you want to switch levers between the 66 and 73 ?

I might do it just to see if others would....
