Default M1A Super Match

Been thinking of letting an A4 go and I've been tossing the idea around of getting an M1A Super match. Was eyeing the SA9805, stainless bbl, McMillan stock etc. Question is, what are the limitations on this rifle in regards to rules? What matches can it be used in and what matches (if any) is it disqualified for?
Thanks,

Thanks,
It is for all intents and purposes a service rifle under CMP rule 6.1.3 of the CMP Highpower rifle & pistol rule book. Legal for CMP and NRA high power rifle matches. It is NOT a legal games rifle and if you wanted to fire it in modern military it would certainly be placed in the unlimited category. It would be legal for the Springfield M1A match @ Perry.

Wouldn't an A4 with a nice set up out shoot a M1A?

I have both and Yes the A4 out shoots the M1A ..

Prone Slow fire. about equal
Prone Rapid fire A4 on average buy 3 to 4 points (Recoil recovery and ease of relaod)
Off hand The A4 edges out the M1A

But i do love shooting the M1A its that wood gun appeal

The A4 I'm thinking of letting go is an original Z prefix. I built a clone for use and abuse and love it, so I have what I need/ like in that category.
As a younger lad I arrived at a new unit and after qualifications they handed me an M14NM and said "you're on the team" I've loved those rifles ever since and figure it's about time I owned one. Maybe I can find someone who wants to trade?
Thanks for the response, I think I go with that rifle then.

Chuck, where were you Sunday with your wood gun? I had 771 with my M1A Std, but Kenny shot a 774 with his National Match or Super Match.
