    Exclamation 2019 Spring Vintage Military Rifle Postal Match


    Open to anyone, anywhere!
    It's that time of year, again. Time to initiate another vintage military rifle postal match, sponsored by the South Texas Marksmanship Training Center. This one's a bit different from last year's; distance increased from 50 to 100 yards, the aiming black is slightly larger, and the required rifle action is semi-auto, not bolt action. (Any sem-iauto military rifle designed prior to 1955, caliber .256 [6.5mm] or greater, up to .32 cal.) Navigate to these links for all the details and printable targets:
    1. Guidelines/rules
    2. 100 yards rapid fire target
    3. 100 yards slow fire target
    As always, my contact information is provided with item #1 if you have any questions or comments.
    Good luck, and "keep 'em in the X-ring!"
    Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result.

    Shoot 'em!

    Welcome, Merle!
    Yes, that's a Venezuelan FN-49.
    The tiny little white tag above the magazine says 7mm, so I don't confuse it with my 8mm Egyptian.

    I thought I saw a muzzle break there.
    I have one too, but it came without a mag.
    I ended up modding a repro 8mm mag, and it seems to work OK.
    I'll find out pretty soon...

    Exclamation First Target!

    I know an FN-49 can do better, so now I want to try this with my Venezuelan 7mm, and do both slow-fire and rapid-fire.
