    Camp Perry M1 Garand match question

    Are National Match sights, specifically the hooded rear sight legal at Camp Perry in the "As-issued" class?

    From the CMP Games Rules book. As I read the rules, I would say no. You can always send them an email and ask.


    -Issued M1 GarandThe rifle must be a Caliber .30 U. S. M1 Garand rifle that was issued by the U.S. Armed Forces and be in as-issued condition. A Caliber .30 M1941 Johnson rifle or a U.S. Carbine Caliber .30 M1 may be fired in matches designated asM1 Garand matches.
