History


The Meistersch├╝tze badge would normally have been awarded at the annual Tiroler Landesschiessen held in Innsbruck, Austria. To receive one, a minimum score had to be achieved in the three events "Wehrmann", "KK-Gewehr" and "Pistole" ("refile", "small calibre rifle" and "pistol"). A large number of these badges were un-issued and were released onto the collectors market when the old shooting ground in Innsbruck was demolished at the end of the war (they had been stored there since the war).

There is limited information regarding this item.
