Revolvers not allowed in Production Optics?

I mean really, if you shot PPC and have a distinguished revolver laying around for about $260.00 you can add a mini scope mount and a small red dot sight and probably be very competitive in production optics. This might get some of the older PPC guys/gals back that can't see the sight any more.

Hi Guys.

 

Thank you Greg.

 

I started to shoot PPC her in Toronto, 3 years ago. the guy running the matches knew I had issues with my vision for standard sights, my eyes are in great shape, but at 59 I have been wearing glasses for 50 years, so to allow me to shoot the PPC matches they created a new category, open optics. I had said I would shoot the matches for no score, but Scott would have non of that.

As it is, a high end PPC revolver with all the bells and whistles, is an open gun anyway, really for position sights, fully adjustable, and NO power factor.

I shoot my fully tricked out AP 681-c-1 and have a ball, shooting better than 1100 most of the time.

The old guys are moving on, as the rules have never changed to allow for the new technology, age, and in the GREAT USA unless your some type of police you cant win anything sort of.

 

So in the end, shoot what you got, have fun, be safe, and lets move forward with this sport.

 

I have a ball shooting PPC, and it helps most of the time with the AP shooting.

 

Thank you for your time

Guys, I've checked the 2020 Action Pistol rules and the 2020 Bianchi Cup match program, and I can't find anything on Production Optics.  Can you point me to where it's been added as a division?

 

This is what I've been given

 

2020 NRA Action Pistol Rule Changes
ADDED - 3.2.4 Production Optic Firearm – Same configuration as a Production Firearm in Rule 3.2.2 with the exception of addition of an optic and that revolvers are not allowed. The following will apply:
a. Pistol must be able to fit into Production Box if optic is removed
b. Optical and or electrical sights must be attached only to the slide between the
ejection port and the rear of the slide

One thing I liked about AP was that if you choose to shoot Revolver you could in each gun category. Unlike PPC where you were required to have a semi - auto and Revolver for each gun category. When I stopped shooting PPC I was up to 8 handguns plus a shotgun. I think it’s even more now. Makes it hard for young cops to afford to get started in the sport. Up to now I could shoot Revolver in each category.  

It’s not like the Revolver is dominating in the Production category. When was the last time a Revolver won at the Bianchi Cup? Why keep them out. I would think you would want more participation not less.

A six inch revo won't fit in the production box. Fine, but a four inch will. Still waiting for an answer to the OP.

Revolvers are exempt from the box in production division

from the rule book "To meet size requirements, handguns with empty magazine inserted must fit wholly within a box with internal dimensions of 8-15/16” x 1-5/8” (revolvers exempt)."

And now revolvers are prohibited in production optics and we still don't know why.
