Default Match rifle basic questuions?

This question came up at our first CMP Hi Power match of the year. What makes up a very basic Match rifle? Does the basic rifle have to be manufactured by an American company, (therefore no Swedish/Swiss rifles)? Does the rifle have to be one used by the US military at some point in time? Basic questions asked, but a multiple of different answers. Would really like a definitive answer. Thanks to all who know the correct answer.

Any rifle that does not fit the CMP rules' description of a Service Rifle (M16/AR15, CMP Alternative Rifle, M14 Type Service Rifle or M1 Garand Type Service Rifle) and complies with the CMP description of a Match Rifle is a CMP Match rifle.

Gentlemen, One must be careful when using the term "match rifle". The NRA has two categories for high power competition - service rifle and match rifle. A service rifle is as defined in the CMP Competition Rule Book. The NRA defers to the CMP for the definition of a a service rifle. The NRA high Power rule book defines a Match rifle. Rick

The new 2017 CMP Rule Book defines a CMP Match Rifle, see 6.1.5 CMP Match Rifle.

Mike, Yep, I see that this category was added this year. Nothing like adding more confusion to the already confusion equipment rules and this confusion is all based on a theoretical situation where the "Match sponsors MAY divide
sanctioned match competitors into two categories for a) Service and
Alternative Rifles and b) Match Rifles". Of course, a NRA legal match rifle and a CMP match rifle are potentially different. Rick
