Default MM match

I took my hooded NM rear sight off my M1A standard to shoot against scopes.
I scored for a shooter obviously shooting an AR service rifle SS barrel and all.I asked how it made weight.The reply was he was shooting Unlimited.
I saw no where to mark that on the provided score card.Checking the results later,the shooter was in with the MM not Unlimited.
On the M1A Springfield match, I witnessed a shooter using the short 10 RD mag.
He obviously knew what he was doing as he kept it covered up at every opportunity.
Some things like this should be obvious to line officials.
I understand how rifle inspections can be a touchy subject,but the rifle should be declared by the shooter of its intended use and marked ccordingly.
I also understand that CMP wants to be more(inclusive)and not disappoint competitors.I don't blame them a bit.
What I do object to are those who try to get away with something.

Overall, I thought it was good match that was well run. I too saw a number of questionable rifles but saw that scores were amended and moved into the "unlimited" class as the days passed.

We had three guys from the M1 for Vets team on our point and we all shared a RRA M4'gery using a 3x optic, passing it along to the next shooter each time we changed relays. As an iron-sight shooter that was my first dabble with optics and it was a bit unnerving getting used to that 3X wobble!

Check out the picture in the link above, CMP rules added the mag length requirement. NRA seemed to allow them in the past. And there was some confusion on how to load. Stay in position but load on an empty chamber, a mix of NRA and CMP rapid commands.

I forgot about scope wobble! Oh man. I may just stick with irons for now.

Unfortunately, some of us are stuck behind enemy lines (NY, NJ, MA, MD, CA) and can only have a 10 rd. mag.

The rules say that you should use a 20 round magazine configured to hold only 10 rounds to meet your states stupid law and fulfill the match needs that everyone shoot similar mags.

It's clear that they don't police modern military the way they do other matches except for trigger safety. Is what it is.

Which rules govern the M1a match? The EIC rules or the Games rules?
