Hello All,

I Just ordered a new Stainless G2 for NRA Hunters pistol silhouette. Thinking I will get a .22 LR match barrel and a 22 Hornet barrel to participate in the discipline. My questions are:

1. Are custom made 12" barrels permitted or factory barrels only? (It is not clear to me when reviewing the rule book)
2. What is the best grip/forend setup, scope base and rings to make weight? (I will be using a Leupold VX-III 6.5-20x40mm EFR scope)

Thank you

Buy a ten inch. Then you can shoot both NRA and IHMSA. You may be near the match in western PA. Check it out on the IHMSA website.

Thanks Greg appreciate the response. I found a shoot about an hour North of Pittsburgh and have contacted the match Director for more information.

Thanks again!

That appears to be the place I was talking about. You should have been in contact with Doug Edney. He's a great guy and will steer you in the right direction. Glad I could help.

p.s. You're apparently not too far from the range in Midvale Oh. Check that out also.

Yes Doug responded with information so good to go there. Tusco is about an hour and a half from Pittsburgh. Looks like a beautiful range so I may make the trip once or twice.

One question are custom barrels permitted or do they have to be factory?

Thanks!

If you intend to shoot field pistol, which is equivalent to hunters pistol. You can use aftermarket barrels in IHMSA. There are restrictions. Go to the IHMSA website and look at the rule book. Especially under guns and cartridges.

IHMSA and NRA have differing rules on allowable barrel length. As Greg pointed out, go with the 10" barrel and you're legal for both disciplines. On the flip side, I think NRA has limits on scope height in their Hunters Pistol, so abide by that and you should be IHMSA legal as well. IHMSA rules are available on their website.
