Default M1A Match

I am currently looking at purchasing a Super Match to shoot in the M1A Match but the rifle has an adjustable comb. Is it still legal? The comb can still sit flat. See picture below.

Are you referring to the specific M1A match sponsored by Springfield Armory? All stages at 300 yards? If yes, I do not recall the rules but one should read them carefully. Maybe someone will eventually weigh in.

If you are referring to the Modern Military matches, the rules can be a bit fuzzy but ultimately I am 99% certain that the CMP armorers would bounce that to the 'Unlimited' class, where you would be competing against scoped Service Rifle AR's.

Yes, the match sponsored by Springfield. The rules state:

What rulebook says:
"Stock dimensions must comply with original stock dimensions, except that
stocks may be no more than 2 inches wide at a point immediately to the
rear of the front band, no more than 2.5 inches wide at the front and rear
of the receiver, and have a continuous taper from receiver to front band.
The width at the receiver may be carried through to the butt plate. If optical
sights are used, the attachment of a cheek pad or cheek-piece riser to the
butt-stock is permitted if the pad or attached cheek-piece is not
orthopedically shaped and is fixed so it cannot be moved or adjusted for
different firing positions."

My guess would be no since the stock cheek piece "is not fixed in position and can be moved or adjusted for different firing positions". Also, what you have there looks to be a stock for a SAI M21 rifle which is a variant of the SM. The link below will direct you to a discussion on it over at the M14 forum.

A related question, as I have yet to see a clear definition in the rules:

Other than the iron sight and standard stock rules, does the Springfield M1A match have any other restrictions similar to 'Games' Modern Military or does this match more or less follow the old high power rules for M1A? Particularly I am curious about overall weight, use of heavy barrel, bedding, etc.

Thanks!

Plenty of bedded, heavy barrel M1As on the line (eg Super Match or their equivalents), thus no weight restrictions. McMillan stocks, lugged, double lugged, bedded, NM sight and trigger combinations and configurations are legal. Doesn't even have to be a SAI rifle any more even though they sponsor the match.
