    MPL Competition

    I have had some enquires about running another MPL series - but this time to include some new classes.

    Please let me know if you are interested in any of the following :-

    6yd MPL Air Pistol

    6yd Open Air Pistol (open to any type of air pistol).

    6 yd MPL Air Rifle.

    10 meter Open Air Pistol.

    10 meter Open Air Rifle.

    10 Meter Supported Air Rifle.

    All of the 10 meter events are open to any type of appropriate UK legal airgun ie PCP/SSP/Spingers/CO2.

    It is probably too late to run a series this year, but I would suggest starting a new 6 month competition to run from the start of January 2021 - the end of June 2021 to be shot on the appropriate NSRA targets.

    All existing MPL rules etc would remain the same other than to accommodate and describe any new classes etc.

    You would be very welcome Ian.

    The MPL is a great place to encourage newcomers to target shooting competitions to "give it a try" and it is one of the few events that can be entered and shot from home, garden, or club.

    Shooting from home at the traditional British 6 yards distance was what the MPL was originally intended to promote along with the use of classic spring powered (Muscle Powered) airguns, but the scope has been widened to include those that can shoot at 10 meters (indoors or outdoors).

    The scope has also been widened to include non MPL spring or single stroke pneumatic (SSP) airguns - such as those powered by CO2 or Pre Compressed Air (PCP) in the Open events.

    The event is promoted and organised by myself and other non-paid volunteers on behalf of the Rossendale Target Club - a small club in Rossendale, Lancashire to help it survive and keep the doors open.

    Well, you never know…. I might try it out with open sights, … like how we used to shoot back in the NARPA days with Wobbley Hawks

    Ive gone all glassy eyed now Paul - NARPA was responsible for getting me started back around 1970 - good days indeed!

    As a matter of interest I have fitted a peep sight to my HW30S (bit like Russ fitted to his) and it works really well at 10 meters - so it should be even better at 6 yards!

    I enjoyed the last one I did. Let me know when you decide and Iíll enter whatever class is appropriate for a peep-sighted HW30.

    Thank you

    Could you tell more about the peep sight and where I might find one Bob?

    Thinking back, the first competition gong I won was shooting on NARPA targets using my Original 75.
    Ironically the item I won was a silver NSRA spoon in a presentation box that I still have

    You can use any type of rear diopter sight Paul - most fit the HW30S - but just check to be sure.

    I can send you a picture of mine by email and if you check the BBS thread here about the 30S you can see the pictures Russ posted of his.

    I think Russ bought his new from Intershoot, but mine was a used "left handed" Anshultz one that I was given by Robin Carter some years ago, and it works a treat. The only difference with a left handed diopter rear sight is that the adjusting knobs on mounted on the other side of the sight - but that has made no difference to me at all, so I have been very pleased with it.

    If you fancy buying a new one (or just taking a look at some of the many different types that are available) take a look on any of the specialist match rifle accessory dealers sites as there are dozens of different types (and prices!) to choose from!

    Good used diopter sights can sometimes be found on here or on "eBitz" etc.

    Excellent news gents

    The more the merrier as they say, and it will be interesting to see what guns members are using.

    Iíve got a choice of pistols to use in the 6yds MPL and will probably end up using my FWB 65.

    For the ĎOpení matches Iíll use my Steyr LP10.

    The MPL rules have been displayed many times here on the BBS and can be found easily enough, but I will update them to include the new disciplines very shorty and display then again here - along with a list of received entries once they start to come in.

    Many thanks for your interest
