I haven't worn out an AR in a while, if I can get a slot I'm going.

Did we send anyone to compete in the manual division?  What kind of guns are they using to compete in that division?

We didn't have anyone in manual.  I ended up being the only US competitor in Standard.

 

I saw a combination of rifles to include a variation of the Remington 7600 (it may have been a 7615P), a custom Remington 700 in 308 complete with S&B PM II scope, and at least one Enfield.  Of course the Russians were using the pump action AK variant.

The Rem belonged to the RO

The Loaner (which I was grateful to get a chance to shoot due to my poor flight planning).
