I just read that the CMP is allowing scoped rifles in their EIC matches. I have a couple of questions that I can't find an answer for.

1) Will the shooter be able to adjust the scope for elevation and windage or must all the elevation and windage changes be handled via the reticle?

2) Can BUIS be installed on the rifle during a match?

Thanks,

Paul

Paul, Yes and Yes. It is most effective to use a scope that has accurate and repeatable elevation and windage adjustments (just like good iron sights). As I understand it, the rifle may have BUIS's but I assume that they can't be used during competition since my understanding of the rules is that if iron sights are used in lieu of an optical sight, they must be the carry handle variety. The actual wording is "Alternatively, the rifle may be equipped with issue-type metallic front and rear sights with a maximum sight radius of 20.5inches. Metallic sights, if used, must have an M16 type sight design with the rear sight in the carry handle and the front sight in the standard M16 location." Rick

I don't think you can alternate between optics and irons in the same match, like shooting irons at 200 and optics at 600.

Bamban, I agree with you. Specifically the rules state "If an optical sight is used, the same optical sight configuration must be used in all stages of a course of fire (changing sights or sight mount configurations is not permitted)." Of course, a shooter may change magnification during the course of the match. Rick

There is a rule in the NRA rule book that essentially states that whatever the CMP considers to be a service rifle, the NRA does too.

That said, CMP rules that aren't specifically in regards to the definition of a service rifle wouldn't necessarily be the same and would have to be covered in the NRA rulebook. In general, many of the rules are quite similar, but there are distinct differences in how matches are run...ie Sitting and prone rapid fire matches...the shooter must start in the standing position during a CMP match with magazine inserted and the bolt closed on an empty chamber, the NRA starts in position with no magazine in the rifle.
