A fairly thick booklet, it provides a wealth of information. Some of the topics covered include….

A breakdown of the Swiss course of fire.

Tuning your rifle for maximum accuracy is a vital topic.

No rifleman’s book would be complete without detailed maintenance instructions. Bucks County graciously provides this book to each new competitor upon entering their first match.

    Reading through the pages provided above I would think that this booklet has to be a great accessory for not only a newcomer to shooting Swiss rifles, but for guys like me who tend to take things for granted – until they see the error of their ways once reading a booklet like this one.
    . My first rifle was a present from an official of a particular Swiss Embassy in my own country of birth back in 1960. Despite the long passage of time since then, I still enjoy competing nowadays with my diopter-attached Hammerli models.
    There is that saying: ”One is never too old to learn”. A booklet like this has to be an essential part of everyone’s shooting bag; just the thing to take out and refresh. Order a copy if you can.

    • The books are made by hand by our match director and he gives them out to new shooters who come to compete in the Swiss matches,we did have a few extras last year which I mailed out to several people but currently we are out
