Exclamation M14/M1A Modern Military 5 Round Mag ?

Any rule violation to use a 5 round mag during off hand in a modern military match ? Generally, I would use the standard 20 rounder but, the 5 makes it easier to duplicate my off hand stance with the M1. Working hard this year to improve my off hand scores.
Thanks
David

5.2.2 CMP Games Rule Book:

"The exterior configuration of the rifle must be the similar to that of the original military or military-type rifle;"

MY read is that as long as the magazine has the external dimensions of the standard 20-round box magazine, you should be in compliance. Its one reason I Mag-Blocked my 20's to 10 rounds (NY Compliant) and welded them shut. The 10 rounder (shorter) mags are a NO-GO

There was alotta talk about ppl using short M1A mags last year. But just about everyone has given up on this match, anyways. Proly bring a Ruger PRS and no one will say anything.
