Minimum Caliber Restriction ?
« on: February 14, 2022, 11:46:56 AM »
Just a quick question, does NCOWS have a minimum caliber restriction?  Specifically, can I shoot a 32 WCF rifle?  Thank you in advance.

Yes, 32/20  AKA  32WCF is fine

The original Winchester 73's were available in that caliber...Marlins were as well
when planets align...do the deal !

Always a simple answer with NCOWS, if it WAS THERE it's legal. If it was invented
to make things faster, and you can't find proof it was pre 1899, probably not.

More than half my rifles, original guns are 32 WCF! I have 4x 32WCF Rifles, (Winchester 1892, Colt Lighting, 2x Marlins, 1 original 1x repo) in 2x Revolvers in 32 WCF. All accepted.
Even more controversial, I own a 92 Marlin that can shoot 32 Long, have used it locally, not regional. I also have other conflict pieces, a 7 shot Merwin 32, plus Colt New Pocket, & New Police 32 six shot.
Willing to shoot any of them in competition.

I shot my .32 Long S&W 1st Model Hand Ejector (1896) at the Nationals last year.

32wcf is what I've shot mostly in rifle in recent years. Runs real clean with BP.

I only own a single original rifle, but it is a 32-20.

Always wanted one, I've had a bunch of original 44s and 38 but not a 32. All my 32wcf are Uberti's

I own 4x original , 32/20 rifles, 1 repo. 2x you original 32/20 revolvers. 1x original 32 long rifle, 3x 32 long original revolvers.
I have & can shoot other original guns up to 44, (rifle & revolver), call me a gamer, I like the smaller calibers, shooting larger calibers may add a couple seconds per stage.
