Most likely.... CMP made no attempt to see what the commercial offerings where coming off the line with. This is clear when CMP gives Springfield Armory Inc a clear variation to the weight rule? Why just SAI?
Like i said my rifle now makes weight.
The "similar" portion is a complete mess. Im waiting on my friend to weigh his tricked out socom. i eould love for him to show up to VT. See how they decide to classify him.
