Summary

Five shooters scored 59 individually in this event and three of them were Americans – Carl Osburn, Lloyd Spooner, and [Morris Fisher] – which enabled the US to win this gold medal with a comfortable margin over second-place France. Finland, Switzerland, and Sweden tied for third with 281 points. The original scores on the first reading of the targets was: Sweden 281, Switzerland 280, Finland 279.
