Modern Military
Is an M1A with a USGI M14 E2 stock with no bedding and standard sights legal for the Modern Military match in the upcoming Talladega 600 Matches? I've sent an email to the CMP too.

Does it make the weight?

That, I do not know.

My guess is that it will not make weight and that would preclude using it in the standard class B match. Of course, you can use in in the unlimited class if it does not make weight.

Would somebody from CMP answer my question please? I've sent two emails and heard zero.

It all comes down to CMP's interpretation of rule 5.2.2a "The exterior configuration of the rifle must be similar to that of the original military or military-type rifle"

Emphasis on original. CMP is probably scratching their heads, wondering what to do with this specific and somewhat rare case, and wondering the implications of their decision.

I've never shot a modern military match, to have the chance to look at the field. My guess is that most of the ARs have all sorts of doo-dads and gizmos attached to them, and based on that I don't see how they could really have a problem with this stock.

I mean really, take a look at what a nightmare service rifles have become with aftermarket adjustable stocks, aftermarket quad rails, aftermarket scopes, aftermarket mounts and rings. With all that being allowable now, I can't imagine they'd have a problem with your stock.

But all of that is conjecture.

i think the only way to get a real answer is to just show up with it. thanks.

I doubt it would make the 7.5# max weight. If not could still shoot it....but would be in the Modern Military "Unlimited" class. Not really what you were looking for but hopefully CMP will answer with an official ruling. i would print that out and take it with you in case there is any drama at the inspection table.
