CAS requires competitors to use firearms typical of the mid-to-late 19th century: single-action revolvers, lever action rifles chambered in pistol calibers, and side-by-side double barrel shotguns (also referred to as Coach Guns – with or without external hammers, although automatic ejectors are not allowed), or pump-action shotguns with external hammers (similar to the Winchester 1897). Winchester 1887 lever-action shotguns and Colt Lightning slide-action rifles are also legal. Both original and reproduction guns are equally acceptable. An atmosphere of OLD WEST is created with each match.
Competition in a CAS match generally requires four guns: two period revolvers, a shotgun, and a rifle chambered in a centerfire revolver caliber of a type in use prior to 1899. Replica firearms are available from companies such as Ruger, Colt, Uberti, Pedersoli, Chiappa, Pietta, Armi San Marco and U.S. Fire Arms Mfg. Co.
Competitors are encouraged to dress OLD WEST. New shooters are welcome. First time attendees will shoot free.
