Definitions of "Stock guns" and "Pin guns"

Stock gun: Pistol or Revolver.

Stock guns are: most weapons that do not have after-market/after-sales chamber compensators, magna-porting or muzzle brakes that can screw, bolt or clip onto the barrel. The “Stock” weapon may also not have optical sights (e.g., C-MORE, TASCO, HOLO-SIGHT, etc.) or any kind of barrel weight that can screw, bolt or clip onto the barrel. Pistols and revolvers that comes standard from the manufacturing company with magna-porting, compensator slots, chamber compensators which are an integral part of the barrel or any other means for the controlled venting of the propellant gasses, before the back of the bullet leaves the crown of the barrel, that aids in controlling the weapon while being fired, that weapon would be considered as “Stock”. This includes firearms assembled from factory parts and accessories to the factory specifications. The decision to allow firearms that do not easily fit the above description, into a “Stock” gun event, falls on the Match Director or Head  Range Officer on duty for that particular match. Prior to matches commencing any disputed firearms must be brought to the Match Director’s and a decision made before shooting commences. SAPSF can make a final and binding rule regarding disputed firearms.

Pin gun: Pistol or Revolver.

Basically, a “Pin” gun could have almost any after-market addition except optical sights. Therefore screw-on, bolt-on or clip-on barrel weights and/or compensators are allowed in the “Pin” gin events, although the decision to allow weapons that do not easily fit into the above description, into a “Pin” gun event, falls on the Match Director or Head Range Officer on duty for that
particular match.
