Maybe the event I saw modeled one of the types you're mentioning,
but was a amateur low scale version?
Anything's possible. I've seen matches done on some strange formats.
There is an annual and very popular match every year in Idaho that's
split along frame sizes--Sub compact, compact and full size.
Single Stack matches for 1911's are common, and around here we have
a annual "Plastic gun championship" match for polymer framed pistols.
What range was it and when was the match? I'm kind of curious now.
