Legal reticle for K-4 scope vintage sniper.
 
I've got a Weaver K4-1 with duplex reticle. Am I reading the rules correctly that it is not allowed on a Swedish Mauser reproduction M41B?

If itís an El Paso, TX it should be okay.

It says "USA" but not El Paso

"I'm new to the vintage sniper matches and am planning on attending the Western Games in Phoenix this October. I have a questions about use of the Weaver K4 scope on a reproduction Swedish M41 sniper rifle.

I have a Weaver 4 x 32 K4-1 with the duplex crosshair reticle. It is marked "USA". Is the duplex crosshair reticle legal for use on the Swedish M41 reproduction sniper rifle?

I also am planning on using a reproduction 1903A4, with a K2.5 weaver scope. Must I use reproduction 1" vertically split rings with this set up? "



I'm asking again if anyone knows the answers to these questions


Thanks

I have used a M41B replica for 5yrs now and it has always been my understanding that scope must be El Paso marked and fine crosshair reticle.

There is nothing in the 2018 rulebook indicating that fine cross hairs are required, nor are there any requirements other than: "Weaver K4 (32mm max. objective lens dia.)" Be prepared with a rule book. Persist in getting an answer from CMP.....and make sure you have it printed out. Most shooters do not have problems with inspection, but there are some serious arbitrary rulings... Good Shooting. ....

Weaver K-4
 
The Weaver K 4 is legal on the swede with post or fine crosswire.
Duplex are not legal.
Don't ask how I know.....

The one on my Swede is the fine crosshair, but I have another with a 1/4 moa dot. I have wanted to try it, but figured that it would not pass.
