Looks like any one with nonrailed handguards on a service rifle (other than A2 style) has to add rails for 2017 to be legal.

New rules and an alternative rifle for those in less free states.

It appears that 9mm 1911s are now legal for service pistol.

And the whole classification/match rifle elephant.

Interesting changes.

Since it is talking about bore diameter rather than specific cartridges, I would opt for a .38 Super over a 9mm. Glad I'm done chasing Leg points with a Service Pistol. Should be loads of fun when I run our Outdoor State Pistol match in May.

CDRT

Why would you choose a 38 Super over a 9mm?
Not a critique, just a curiosity question as I consider pistol EIC's.

Thanks.

I can't keep up with all these rules changes.

9mm 1911s are actually a significant change at the top. That's all anybody trying to win is going to shoot. Anyone else just trying to leg out, it's not going to matter.

I've owned 9mm's and was never happy with the reloads that I could make. The slightly tapered case seems to limit what kind of bullets work best. And I have yet to see a 1911 in 9mm shoot that well. One of the guys in Dallas has one that he would shoot at the monthly Bullseye matches. He okay with it, but it had the dot, etc. so it was not EIC legal. He could only get it to work with factory ammo.
The .38 Super has a straight-wall case, like the .45 ACP and it just seems like it would load better. Lots of IPSC/IDPA guys use the .38 Super with good results.

Thanks CDRT

Any brand recommendation? For a 38 super pistol.

I believe I recall you like the SA Range Officer? Not sure if that comes in 38 super or not?

Does anyone know since keymod float tubes are no longer legal for service rifle, if full length picatinny rails are added into the keymod positions to meet the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'click positions, if will be considered as legal? Technically they would be quad rails at that point.
