Weapon Standards

All of the following rifles or machine guns are allowed. However, your rank or role within the unit may restrict which weapons you may use for a given event.

PLEASE NOTE:

Although we do not enforce weapon registration at each event we strongly recommend that you photograph all of your weapons and record the serial numbers and carry a copy of this information on your person at every event. This is to ensure that, should any weapons be lost, they can be returned to the rightful owner. This can also protect you in the event your weapons are otherwise lost or stolen at an event or at home.

Due to new safety regulations, and for the benefit of our unit and any units working with us, all weapons will be checked before each event at the Safety and Authenticity meeting. Any weapons withheld from this check will not be allowed on the field.
