Equipment Requirements

CMP Firearms:  NRA & CMP’s 2017 rules allow a wide variety of rifles to be used at these events.  For the CMP portion, firearms will be classified into one of the following classes IAW Chapter 6 of the CMP rules:

  • M16/AR-15 Service Rifle: Most AR-15s with an optic below 4.5x (or iron sights), a standard A2 grip, a trigger with pull weight greater than 4.5 lbs, and a standard charging handle now qualify in this category.  Slings must be mounted no more than 13 inches forward of the mag well.
  • Alternative Rifle: For our friends in California, CMP is allowing variant rifles chambered in 5.56 using optics <4.5x or iron sights.  Review rule 6.1.2 for details.
  • M14 Service Rifle or M1 Garand Service Rifle: IAW Rules 6.1.3 and 6.1.4.
  • Match Rifle: Nearly all rifles chambered between 5.56 and .308 are eligibile IAW rule 6.1.5.
  • Other Rifles: We will allow other rifles to be fired for practice, fun and bragging rights but scores with non-eligible rifles will not be reported to CMP.

NRA Firearms:  For the AR Challenge portion, nearly any semi-automatic magazine fed rifle with a sling will be suitable.  Classes exist for shooters using iron sights, any single optic, and multiple optics.

Multiple Rifles:  You may use two different rifles (one for each event), but you must use the same rifle for the entire event.  For example, you can use Rifle A for the entire CMP event, then switch to Rifle B for the NRA event.

Other Equipment:  Bring a shooting mat, blanket or carpet scrap if you have one.

Other Details

Rules: In accordance with the current edition of the CMP Service Rulebook and NRA AR Challenge Guidebook.  For the NRA AR Challenge, locally developed targets may be substituted for the AR-1.
