2019 modern military
 
Please advise on this. As I read the rules that were just posted it states a weight limit of 7.5 pounds for class A modern military. This places the BONE STOCK A2 and A4 with removable carry handle in the unlimited class. How does this keep with the intent or sport of the games? Either you buy another rifle or are forced to compete with guys running short match barrels and skeletonized rifles. The weight of a stock A2 or A4 is 8.6 pounds.

The new class is going to be a basic iron sight rifle or carbine. A quick look has M16 weight at 7.5# and the M4 carbine considerably lighter...... Good Shooting. ..

Rock river A2 according to their web page lists @ 8.6. Colt lists @ 7.7 both over the limit!

You aren’t going to make weight with a 20” HBAR or other heavy under handguard barrel.

The 7.7 is not an H-bar

" capacity 30+1" Colt weighed it with a magazine. CMP weight is without mag (and sling). You get to play with various stocks and handguards too. Good Shooting....

That’s my point at what time does swapping parts make it non standard?

do we have to go back to an A2 upper receiver or will a removable carry handle be acceptable? can I use a BUIS for a front sight or do I have to swap out my gas block and will it have to be riveted or will a clamp/screw be ok?

So, as I understand the 2019 MM Match rules, there can be three MM classes; A, B and Unlimited. I assume that means us "dirty thirty" shooters will not be competing against any of the 5.56mm bunch. I wonder if that means separate awards for the different classes, at least at CP?
Might be worth shooting again.
Mike.
