On 26 September 1874 Creedmoor witnessed a crowd of over five thousand people attending the first international shooting competition in America. At 800 yards the American had a good lead. The Irish gained on them at 900 yards, and by the time they had finished shooting at 1000 yards, were ahead of the Americans. In the end, the match was determined by the very last shot by the Americans. Shooting a bulls eye at 1000 yards to score 4, the Americans emerged the winners with 934 points to the Irish teams 931. In commemoration of this history USA Shooting Team event, Chiappa and Cimarron Firearms are proud to offer the USA SHOOTING TEAM Model 1874 Creedmoor Sharps Rifle.
