hi ppc shooters,
as you know, if you shoot a service auto, the bullet must be 35 caliber or larger.that is very nice to shoot a 45 caliber bullet, may get you a few more points over a 9mm. not looking to get into a recoil conversation.
now there are a number of 45 wheel guns out there, with 4" barrels, what would be wrong with having the service revolver opened to 35 caliber or larger, just like the auto? your thoughts on this? thanks.....dan

Dan, unless I am wrong if you wish to use anything from .32 cal on up you can do so. Therefore the use of a .45 revolver would be legal.

As of now rule states must chamber and fire 38 special ammunition. Ammo can be either round nose or semi wad cutter new or reload. I will be surprised if the Competitor 686 is allowed for Distinguished. JPE

looks like we are going off the path here. we are talking about the service revolver gun, which must chamber a 38 caliber round, and the barrel not be longer than 4". all i'm saying, is open the service revolver class, to include any revolver 38 caliber or larger, with a barrel no longer than 4". that was my thought....dan

Yes, appears they are possibly, mixing the Distinguish Match with service/duty revolver match. This match limited to 4" or below bbl. I was wrong here,
3.6 Stock Service Revolver: A factory
manufactured (catalog item) revolver capable of
chambering and firing ".38 Special" ammunition.
1. Barrel length up to 4 inches.
2. The front sight being a ramp or post as sold
by the manufacturer of the firearm.
3. Replacement of service type sights with
other service type sights, luminescent
service sights, or fiber optic service sights,
provided such sights do not require
alteration of the firearm for installation.
4. Chamfered cylinders.
.38 special ammo only.
However-Open Revolver match
Open Class Revolver: A revolver chambered to
fire center-fire cartridges "_32 Caliber or larger"
the trigger is capable of single action it must be
capable of lifting 2.5 pounds when the gun is
cocked for single action firing.
1. Maximum barrel length of 6 inches.
2. Maximum sight radius 8.5 inches.
3. Sight guards may not extend rearward more
than 2 inches.
So, if you wanted to use a .45 in the open revolver should be no problem.
