Old Russian rifles shot good in 54



Log in to see fewer ads
I ran across an old article from Jan. 1955.
It was about the 36th World Shooting Championships of Nov. 54.
This dud her kicked some rear ends.

Here are the winners list.

Now I think that the USSR team all used Russian made rifles & ammo.
But it didn't say anything about there rifles & ammo.
Now the USA team were using some of the best rifles & customized at that.
One was using an Rem.37 with an Dunlap stock,another had a custom Morgan
action with an Johnson barrel and a few tricked out Win.52's.
It did state in the article that the Russians were using team rifles selected by
the coaches & not by the shooters.

Just kind of interesting.

I think there's a cross bolt on the left side of his rifle.
Thanks for sharing this with us.
Anymore pics with the article, of the Russians, and their rifles?

I would agree.

It was interesting to read the article. The USA got beat pretty bad & not just
by the Russians & had alot of questions of what happened. Also there was a fallow up on
what the USA should do to get back on track in the next months isue of the magazine.
Remember this was the early cold war years in 1955.

American Rifleman Jan. 1955 & Feb. 1955.
I just got an old 10 year old scanner up & running.
I think I have got most of the Russian rifle stuff before my
old scanner bit the dust.
But there isn't much out there.
