Gentlemen, I can't help but think that these proposed rules are overly complicated. Simply allow optics and hit everyone with a reasonable weight limit. Those who choose optics have less leeway on how they apply their weight budget since optics add weight to the overall rifle. Allowing optics does make sense to me. Service rifles now use optics so competition service rifles should be allowed to have optics as well. I personally find that optics help in some situations but are problematic in others. There are far more things that can go wrong with optics than iron sights. One that comes to mind is the fact that some scopes do not track straight up and down when elevation is adjusted. This is a real issue in service rifle competition. Also, unless one carefully chooses their optics, they can find that eye relief and exit pupil size can a real problem when used in multiple shooting positions. Rick
