I asked about which matches you are interested in for the same reasons other posters are bringing up various things.....

The Modern Military matches are one of the CMP Games matches and they are shot at 200yds.
Service Rifle is shot out to 600yds.

Just my 2% here:

The Colt would work ok for the MM. You wont be limited by the short barrel and short sight radius. That leaves the trigger and possible sling tension shifting your zero. I don't think free floats are legal for the MM though.

For Service Rifle all those will work against you though.....along with the NATO chamber. The Colt will work but to be honest, it will be frustrating.

BTW...... the looseness of the receivers is distracting but not a loss in accuracy............. if it bothers you, use a "wedge" to tighten it up.

The Colt's are great combat rifles........ but there are better for competition.

PS the name "match target" was a Clinton era AW ban thing........ that is why you don't have a FH (along with the bayonet lug missing) and the name was to make the Dems happy, it really isn't a "match" rifle.
Service Rifle.... RIP .... 1884-2015
