As Issued M16
 
Good morning Everyone,

I have what might be a silly question, but I'm looking for some clarification.

To participate in the As Issued M16 match, does it have to be a rifle from SAFS or a military issued M16? If not, will a 20" A4 with a detachable carry handle qualify?

Thanks,

Brian

IIRC:
If you are talking about the SAFS school match (sometimes called the EIC Introductory match), you use their rifles and issue ammunition.

If you are talking about the CMP Games matches, yes you use your own rifle, but check the weight. They have a weight cut off that gets alot of people.
(I believe this is what you are talking about. They use the term "as-issued" to distinguish the rifle from a match conditioned one.
In theory a "as-issued" rifle is a stock rifle and you bring your own. They inspect it (generally) but it has to make weight and that is the challenge).

Thank you sir.

I've fired in a couple of Garand matches, and was trying to figure out the path to EIC. After reading deeper, its starting to make sense.

Can you fire in multiple classes to build Leg points? IE: Does participating in Modern Military A and B in the same weekend match possibly add points to the same bucket (if you're good enough)? Or are you restricted to one class once you start?

EIC matches are separate from the Modern Military match. You can only shoot so many a year. The as-issued EIC match can get you 4 introductory points, after that you need to get the remaining 26 points at regular EIC matches. You need to get one hard Leg to get your Distinguished Medal, an 8 or 10 point Leg.

Thank you very much. I was reading the Games rulebook instead of the Highpower Rifle book. This makes a lot more sense.

One note: if shooting as a civilian, any leg at the NTI is a hard leg. Also, if you have regular EIC points, I don't believe you're eligible for points in one of the intro matches.

Correct, if you already have points, you cannot get four at the Intro matches.
