If you have followed the conversations, you know that the lack of consistency (and competency) at inspections is part of the problem. If you are having problems, I suggest pressing the issue and asking for a senior armorer or the match director. There are some real horror stories. Last summer an "inspector" removed the stock from a sniper rifle and DQed a drill rifle, 1903 1941 USMC repro.......before the match. I built the rifle. It passed inspection the year before and there was nothing wrong with it. Good Shooting. ...

I could not agree more. The camel stuck his nose under the tent and the rest is history.

I donít think a rifle should be torn down prior to competing unless itís to fix a trigger that does not make weight,or some obvious item like exposed bedding compound.
If rifle is questioned it could be examined after the match if score deemed it necessary.

I also had a sniper rifle dq for Trigger weight which was repaired by the armored only to find out that they were using the 3.5 weight initially.My fault in not noticing,thinking they knew what they were doing.Spring was replaced with a 3.5.Mine was a 2.5.I have left it that way as it made no noticeable difference.
I would like to see the weights marked say white 2.5,red 3.5 and yellow 4.5
Or some such variation so itís obvious what is being applied.

Exactly!
When I show up for a match my rifles are clean, lubed, barrel fouled and settled into the stock. Inspector or MD is welcome to tear down any rifle i shoot AFTER the match.

Like the M16 EIC used to be, except all the guns work?

Like a lot of things, the principles are often sound but the execution is flawed. No guarantees but death and taxes, right? Could always use rules like we had in "claim racing" back in the day. Gamers would really love that.
