Mauser Match rules are center-fire rifles with open sights, but we have added the rifle class "Ordonnanzgewehr" using the German rules, unaltered military bolt action infantry repeating rifles, for the remainder of this year. This opens the shooting to the M1903-A2, M1917, Enfield No. 4's, Arisakas, FR-8s, etc.
