Date 3 August 1920
StatusOlympic
LocationKamp Beverlo, Beverlo
Participants11 from 3 countries
Format30 metres. 30 shots in five series of six shots. Individual possible 300. Team competitors could allow their score to stand for the individual match.

In this event the Brazilian shooters used Smith & Wesson revolvers with adjustable sights, while the American shooters used either the Colt Army Special or the Smith & Wesson Military with fixed sights. Guilherme Paraense used his adjustable sighted S&W quite well to win the gold medal. Paraense finished fairly early, and the American team knew of his score. Only Ray Bracken had a chance to defeat him but his first shot in the last round was a 6, costing him any possibility of catching Paraense.
