CSS (Gary Eliseo) Releases New Chassis for CG INCH Action

Competition Shooting Stuff (CSS), run by Gary Eliseo, is now producing a specialized tubegun chassis for the new CG INCH action sold by X-Treme Shooting Products. The CG INCH action is an innovative single-shot action with three lugs in the rear.

Gary Eliseo tells us: “The new CG INCH is a very robust triple-lug action designed by Robert Chombart. The CG INCH’s unique rear lug design allows the loading port to be much closer to the shooter than with a rem-style action. The port is about 1.5″ further back. With the CG INCH’s rear three-lug design, the bolt throw is shorter than a front lug action so the bolt handle is no further to the rear when the bolt is open. This design makes loading from the shoulder much more convenient.” Another nice feature of the CG INCH is that no separate recoil lug is required with the CSS Kit. The rear of the action is milled perfectly square and this acts as the recoil stop once the action is assembled into the CG1 chassis. Gary says the only downside to the CG INCH action is that the three-lug bolt does require a bit more effort to lift and cock than bolts in most two-lug actions.

Scherer Earns Olympic Quota in Korea World Cup

Sarah Scherer ISSF KoreaIn a near-perfect performance, Sarah Scherer, a sophomore at Texas Christian University (TCU), claimed the gold medal in Women’s 10m Air Rifle at the ISSF World Cup Korea. Scherer entered the final round tied with Poland’s Agnieska Nagay, a two-time Olympian. Scherer then nailed an impressive 103.5 score in the final, to finish with 501.5 total points, winning by one point. Nagay finished with 500.5 total points (398+102.5) for the silver medal and a quota place for Poland. Finishing third was Serbia’s Ivana Maksimovic with 499.4 total points (397+102.4).

Sarah, an All-American and NCAA Champion shooter at TCU, wowed the crowd. National Rifle Coach Major Dave Johnson said, “Sarah was a focused machine. I was impressed with her control and determination.” You can watch Scherer shoot in the ISSF Video below (action starts after 35-second intro).

Not only is this a huge accomplishment for Scherer, she also brings home a much-needed 2012 Olympic quota for Women’s 10m Air Rifle. In an ISSF interview, Scherer said, “It has been my first time in a final, and it was a bit intimidating to shoot shoulder to shoulder with these experienced athletes. But I have been training hard to get here, so I was quite confident. It feels great to win a quota place for my country.” This was Scherer’s first ISSF Gold. But she is no stranger to the podium. Sarah was the 2010 NCAA National smallbore rifle champion and the 2010 USA Junior Olympics air rifle champion.

Top Guns Shoot Prone and F-Class at Sacramento

Forum member Jerry Tierney reports that the Sacramento Valley Shooting Center (Folsom Shooting Club) had a great turnout for its 600-yard high power prone and F-Class match this past weekend. There were 55 shooters total, with more F-Class shooters than prone shooters, and the 20 F-TR shooters was the biggest . That’s impressive attendance for this early in the season.

Noma Mayo Wins Prone, Pete White Wins F-Open, Sean Mattson Wins F-TR
Jerry Tierney reports: “I really hate to say this but, Lane got beat by the girl again. Prone winner was Norma Mayo with a 599-43X, edging runner-up Lane Buxton who shot 598-40X. That is a bunch of Xs!” Interestingly, If Noma had shot on the F-class target (using iron sights and sling) her score would have been 582.

F-Open winner was Peter White, who posted 592-33x to edge Jerry Tierney on X-Count. Jerry shot 592-20X for second place. Jerry was shooting his 7mm SAUM (with Berger 180gr Hybrids) while Peter was shooting his 6BRX with Varget, Berger 108s, and CCI BR4s. Forum member Sean Mattson shot 555-16X, finish first in a large F-TR field. With 20 shooters, F-TR was the most popular class.

NBRSA 600-Yard and 1000-Yard Nationals Coming Soon
One reason this Match was so well-attended by F-Classers is that the NBRSA 600-Yard and 1000-Yard Nationals plus a 1K F-Class Bench Match will be held later this month in Sacramento, so this weekend was an ideal “tune-up” match. The entry/information forms are now available for the NBRSA 600-yard Nationals (Sloughhouse 600: April 20-21, 2011), 1000-Yard F-Class Bench Match (April 22, 2011), and 1000-Yard Nationals (Sloughhouse 1000: April 23-25, 2011). All three major events will be held at the Sacramento Valley Shooting Center, located outside Sacramento, California.
