I guess you have a point didn't think about them being made currently with way more improvements done than the old days. I guess we just have to have a little faith in the guys to be honest about WHAT they are shooting. Come on now we are trying to just have fun and be "friendly" about it.
For example, My 1911 is built on the 1947 GI specs but I'm pretty sure no 1947 era build had an air gauged bushing, Novak sights and shot 2" groups at 25 yards from a sandbag. Admittedly its a 38 Super, but that is a PRE WW2 chambering for the 1911.
How can you justify limiting the 1911's to actual unimproved WW2 Era guns if you're allowing Mosins with machinegun barrels, Timney triggers, modern scopes, and handloaded Ammo?
FWIW, IMHO I think the idea of a competition is great but unless you get all the guns to the same range on the same day its meaningless as an accuracy comparison. What I'd like to see is a breakdown by accuracy.
Say... 1/2 MOA, 1 MOA, Etc. To get your results posted on a given list you have to shoot at an agreed graduated target, supply a clear picture of the target to the judges, and a list of what you were shooting (gun, modifications, ammo, distance).
I'm a member of a car club where you have to show a time slip, with a certain ET or lower, and a picture of the car with the correct matching window number at the strip the slip is from to even become a member.
