Expanded Shooter Categories

In keeping with CMP categories, we are breaking the modern military class into standard and unlimited modern military. Standard rifles must meet the following requirements:

  • The exterior configuration of the rifle must be similar to that of the original military or military-type rifle;
  • The trigger pull may not be less than 4.5 lbs.;
  • Butt-stocks may vary in length and be either fixed or adjustable. Adjustable length stocks are permitted, but butt stocks that allow for other adjustments such as the cheek-piece height or butt-plate location may not be used;
  • Magazines may have a capacity of no more than 30 rounds. Magazines may not be used to support the rifle in a firing position where the magazine rests on the ground, shooting mat or arm.
  • Rifles must be equipped with issue-type metallic front and rear sights; rear sights with adjustments finer than one minute of angle are permitted.
  • Additionally, rifles based upon the AR must not be heavier than 7.5 pounds (with sights and without sling) and must be chambered in .223 Remington or 5.56mm x 45mm. Foreign military rifles may not have a caliber greater than 8mm and must meet weight standards as established by CMP.

    Unlimited modern military rifles must meet the above requirements except for weight and sights. Optical sights up to 4.5X and with an objective lens with a maximum of 34mm diameter are permitted, the rifle may exceed established weight limits.

    If you’re unsure of what category your rifle falls, please contact one of the club officials for guidance.
