Welp my AK is listed at 7.5 to "approx. 7 lbs" depending on where I google. 7 lbs. max weight since it's stamped receiver. Probably too heavy. Switching to polymer furniture from wood might help but I wouldn't go to that trouble.
I figured that might be the case. The Yugoslavian M59/66A1 SKS has the flip up night sights which actually kind of help on the rear sight, the dots behave almost like three dot pistol sights for me, and help. I usually leave the front one down since it obscures too much.You'll be fine either way, no one is weighing your rifle at Old Colony.
5.4.4(g) talks about 2 + 8 like Garands but with detachable mags. Doesn't really matter to me, would prefer to use a clip though. Since OCSA seems a little laid back it probably doesn't matter.5 + 5 might be easier
Mine has a leather (presumably Yugoslavian) sling that it came with along with the oiler, cleaning kit, etc. Not useful for shooting. Could order another GI web one or switch my CMP one from the service grade. The CMP special I would use in the M1 match has a Ron Brown 1907 sling.Semi auto you need to load 2 rounds then 8 rounds on the rapids.
Unless some how your semi auto was limited to 5 round capacity.
As for the scores. They are sent in that's all I know why cmp does not post them?
I gave up personally. Take photos of your score cards log them on a thumb drive and if you need them for some sort of match classification or what ever they are at least logged.
As for a sling with the sks. Toss a GI web loop sling on it and see if you can make it work. Might be hard if you have long arms?
I might run my SKS also.
he CAN shoot just OOC out of competition. As long as there is room on the line.There were plenty of ARs shooting MM including a couple guys in our group. They still have to align to the rules - overall weight, trigger weight, features, etc. The guy in front of me at the rifle inspection table get told he couldn't shoot his AR in MM because of a float tube.
I shot a borrowed M1A for MM.

AK is slingless currently, but the sling mounts are in the same spots I believe.
With the CMP tracker it's weird because other matches do have results up. I'll just have to take a picture. At least I have my CMP competitor number now, ha.
I don't know if I'm going to have time to work up M1 loads for 200 yds that will be desirable other than guessing. Debating whether to try to adjust for the 70 or so I have loaded right now on the light side or just run HXP. Gotta watch out for that HXP flier though . Maybe if I just crank the sights up and lob those 30-06 in there.
Sounds like a plan. I have 40 something 30-06 brass already primed and ready. I've got plenty of Varget on hand, I'll do 46gr under 168gr Nosler custom comps and give it a go. I think my SG took 8 clicks for 100 yds. Haven't fired the special yet but would start there. All 20 on same target or spread out? I guess it doesn't matter as a baseline.seriousy run 46 grains of H4895/Varget/748 behind a 155 or 168 that load will hold the 10 ring all day. The rifle and shooter is factor not included.
seriouly though sling up go prone with a sand bag supporting your FRONT SUPPORTING ARM
shoot a 20 shot slow fire at 100 or 200 yards what ever you have. Dont even worry about where on the target your impacting just as long as your hitting it. Take 25 min or so to shoot the 20 rounds.
This will give a good indication of how you your gun and ammo will do. I dont care if you use HXP, Federal gold medal match or a basic reload... post the results and we will go from there.
some where between 6 and 12 clicks up should get you on paper at 100 yards... then adjust accordingly. my gun base zero for 200 yards i use for the JCG matches is 12 clicks up. lighting will play on that though. it was pretty bright out last match and i ended up at 14 and could have used another 2 clicks....but i found a little hick up in my rear aperture on 15 and 16 clicks it jumps n 14 i was hitting low 10s high 9s when i clicked up 2 clicks i hit low 8s high 9s! should have been top of 10 ring! o well
Probably? Unsure how it works at an actual CMP Games Match. We had to sign up for our relays ahead of time when we registered. The CMP Armorer said the guy could shoot in Service Rifle but not MM. The rifle in question looked more like a Range Toy versus a Target Rifle, maybe the guy was local and just showed up with it to see what would happen.
