The men's individual competition with free revolver events were two of the competitions in the Shooting at the 1900 Summer Olympics events in Paris. They were held on 1 August 1900. 20 shooters from 4 nations competed, with five shooters per team. Medals were given for individual high scores, and the scores of the five shooters were summed to give a team score. The US team submitted an entry the day before but did not show up so the Swiss team who was there for the 300m rifle event entered instead. Revolver must have a barrel of 11cm in length. The target designed for this competition is still being used today.
Each shooter fired 10 series of 6 shots, with a top possible score per shooter of 600 points. Ties breaker by greatest number of shots on target (1 or better), then greatest number in the black (7 or better), then by ring (10, 9, 8, etc). 16 hours (2 days) to complete. (8am to 12pm then 2pm to 6pm with 2 hour lunch break)
