The HSBA Rook and Rabbit Rifle competitions are designed to be friendly and inclusive, if you have a historic, small caliber rifle (<450 ft lbs ME) you can probably squeeze it into one of our categories. An added benefit of our competition is of course to see the rifles other competitors bring along, there are some beauties!

As the name implies the primary focus is on the delightful little Rook and Rabbit rifles made in Britain from about 1865 - 1914 for sport, practice and the pot. These come in many shapes and sizes and were made by or for some of the most famous gunmakers of their era Holland & Holland, Purdey, Webley, Greener, Wesley Richards and a plethora of others.

We also encourage other rifles of similar vintage such as 310 Cadets, BSA 22s and even muzzle loaders.

YOU are very welcome to come, please check out the competition details and book here >>>>
