India's ace marksman Gagan Narang has clinched the silver medal in the men's 50m rifle three position event of the HH The Amir of Kuwait International Shooting Grand Prix.

Narang shot a total of 1165 (prone 395, standing 385, kneeling 385), to get richer by $6000.

Narang had, on Wednesday, won a silver medal in the 10m air rifle event.

Sanjeev Rajput, winner of bronze medal in the men's 50m Rifle Prone event earlier, finished fourth with a score of 1160.

Sidi Peter of Hungary had won the gold medal, his second of the tournament. Peter shot 1171 while the bronze medal was won by Serbian Nemanja Mirosavljev who shot 1162.

Narang, a multiple gold and silver medallist in the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games and the Guangzhou Asian Games, is a bright medal prospect in the upcoming Olympics in London.
