Default Clarification, Service Rifle Rules

Hello,

What is the intent of the rule is that says the scope must be mounted to the receiver? Does that mean that both mounts, if you are using single rings, have to be mounted to the receiver? Or is one good, in my case the rear ring is on the receiver and the front one is on the forend.

I can see how the intent may have been to exclude long eye relief, forward mounted, scopes but what say the CMP?

Save yourself lots of trouble and don't try to bridge received and handguards. Buy an extended riser.

The receiver is the chassis, if you will, so you could have problems bridging the forend especially if something is lose. However, I have been using it and I shoot master scores. I need to make better ammo before I change my scope mount.
