The first-ever IPSC Rifle World Shoot held at the Park Patriot in Kubinka, Russia. USPSA rifle shooters brought home 2 team event and 5 individual awards with a 16 member team.
Winchester, Ky. (August 2017) – DoubleStar Corp, manufacturers of high-quality, US-made AR components, rifles and pistols, proudly welcomes home DoubleStar pro shooter Jeff Cramblit after his individual 3rd place win in the Open Semi-Auto Senior Division and team gold in the OS Senior Division.
The match, which was to be held in 2016, was rescheduled for this year to allow the completion of the Russian’s Ministry of Defense state-of-the-art facility specifically to hold the first World Rifle Championship. Over 600 participants from 39 countries participated making this initial match truly an Olympic size event. The match consisted of 30 stages with targets from 5 to 300 meters. Each stage challenged the shooters to demonstrate their skill set when shooting from multiple positions, as well as their technical skill. Unlike competitions in the US, the short and medium courses were not typically the “run and gun” style and paper targets were scored out to 300 meters, whereas in the US steel reactive targets are normally used providing the shooters with feedback.
The USA team consisted of 16 members, 4 shooters competing on each of the three US teams in Men’s Open Semi-Auto, Women’s Open Semi-Auto, Men’s Open Semi-Auto Senior and 4 additional US Shooters competing as individuals.
DoubleStar Jeff Cramblit shot a Doublestar 3GR rifle topped with a Swarovski Z6i 1-6x scope. “I shot one of my older DoubleStar rifles that I have used for 3-gun for the last few years. Since this match was going to be a slightly different style than our US matches, I was changing configurations around until the last minute trying to find the best mix for this match. My gun ran flawlessly the entire match and I never felt outgunned. Having confidence in your gun and how well it is capable of shooting is half the battle; you can’t go into a competition with the rest of the world with any doubts,” Cramblit concluded.
