Don't you think the rules should say what they mean?

After all what are rules for?

Sir:
My suggestion to you is if you are struggling with the rules now as you did in the past, go to some local matches and get a good feel for what is allowed and not.

In other words if you were frustrated by the rules in 1998 at Perry, you will end up frustrated at Perry in 2019.

Sir, I read your other post. You don't need to keep repeating yourself. The rules as written are erroneous. Anyone with a rudimentary understanding of the English language can see that. My spite comes from my past experience.

Yes and I understand all that, nevermind.

What I'm trying suggest to you is to go to a match and see how the rules are being interpreted and actually used, instead of getting frustrated over how they are written.

From there you can decide if and how (under what class) you would shoot under...……

That would also answer your original question about allowed uppers.

I have shot a couple of matches with our local club recently. Too cold and snowy now. We are somewhat, less formal. My goal is EIC, Service Rifle. Can't practice one way and shoot for points another way.

I remember the way it was.

Ok..... then what were the SR shooters using in those matches?
Irons or optics?
If Irons...…… what rear sight did they use? What configuration were they using?
What did they say when you asked them about the question/s you posted here?

....and yes the rules are erroneous ... Go back and read them.


They say " rifle and MUST incorporate the following features;...."

Otherwise we would not be peeing in each others Wheaties.

The rules SHOULD say "M4 flat top type rifles must have a Picatinny rail...."
