Combined Services Competition

Combined Services rule book

The Combined Services discipline initially commenced in the 1980s in Victoria and Queensland, but is now proudly shot in all Australian states and territories. Although formerly called Military Rifle, the discipline has in recent years adopted Pistol competition. Pistols must be of ‘service origin’ conforming to the specifications and class as contained in the rule book.

The aim of the Combined Services discipline is to encourage organised competitive shooting with a view towards a better knowledge of the safe handling and the proper care of service firearms. The objective is to allow anyone to get into the sport quite cheaply and have everyone on an equal footing.
