CMP Rifle Match

The Newport Rifle Club, a Civilian Marksmanship Program affiliate, holds CMP Rifle Matches on the first Sunday of each month during the spring and summer months.

This is a high power/center fire match where the participant uses either a service rifle (M1903, M1 Garand, M1A, AR-15) or a match rifle (“space gun”). Only iron sights are used.

The match is a 3-position 41 shot course of fire:

10 shots offhand on a 200 yd reduced target

10 shots rapid seated on a 200 yd reduced target

10 shots rapid prone on a 300 yd reduced target

11 shots slow prone (score the high 10) on a 600 yd reduced target

NRC has M1 Garands, M1 Carbines and AR-15s for members to use on a first come first served basis. We also have ammo for sale for the NRC rifles.

Shooters must be qualified on the outdoor range to participate.

Get there early to get your spot on the line.
