Because .22 ammunition is cheap, accurate and low-powered, firearms that fire the .22 rimfire cartridge are the most numerous and varied of all. In the last 120 years of invention, every know type of action has been adapted to this versatile cartridge. Members own a number of early designs, and compete in competitions based upon contemporary targets and courses of fire.
Each competition may have eligibility rules appropriate to the aims of that specific course of fire, so what follows can only be a generalisation:
During the Spring and Summer season, the Club members have the opportunity to compete in the Lee Enfield Rifle Association (LERA) Smallbore Summer Leagues. As one might deduce from the name of the association, most of the divisions are for Enfield military training rifles in .22 calibre which only a few of our members own. However, our members who own other makes of historic .22 rifle can enter the "non-Enfield" class.
