As we have had many enquiries for information on the types of firearms used in ISSF competition, we have created a database of makes and models for each of the disciplines. The lists are not fully comprehensive and are still being updated, but give a detailed description of the different firearms manufactured specifically for ISSF competition.

Although other firearms may be used, these are not manufactured exactly to ISSF maximum or minimum specifications regarding barrel lengths, sight radius, trigger weights etc. Using such firearms may result in a significant disadvantage to the competitor.
