Short question, is the National Match just as versatile as the standard A2 except for being more accurate?

Is the rear sight a dual aperature like the standard A2, or does it just have the target peep?

My friend just got a RRA NM A2 and the rear sight is dual aperature. Just unscrew the peep sight and flip it forward. Its a REALLY accurate rifle. At 400 yards we put 16 out of 16 on a 2' x 3' target.

Pretty much just as versatile but a good deal heavier. You dont want o be lugging a CMP rifle around. Mine weighed 14lbs or so but it had lead weights. I think they weigh around 9lbs without extra weight.

I think mine weighed 10 pounds before I weighted it up to 12. They are darned accurate, thats for sure. I don't mind lugging a 10 pound rifle, I guess its all in what you're used to. Heck, I'm 62 and when the day comes I can't carry a 9/10 pound rifle I'll give it up. Of course I'm not carrying it all day either. (:>).

Cheers,

Yeah I meant lugging it all day. Not just from the car to the range old man

I can still lug it a five or ten miles but have no reason to hump it all day.

Cheers,

That's good to know that the peep sight is still a dual aperature. So pretty much you have 3 different size rear sights to play with...

They are heavier than a standard A2 (HBAR)? Just because of the stainless barrel or do they have weight inserts in them?

lol the ole fart prolly has a buggy to pack it anything over 100 feet.

hey
Would I be an idiot if I took an NM and tried to make a battle rifle out of it?

The barrel is about the same or slightly heavier (the type of steel is not a factor). The DCM/CMP type free-float tube does add quite a bit of weight (they are free-floated, but are supposed to look stock). The all-up rifle is noticeably heavier than your A-2 type HBAR. And most CMP shooters do add buttstock and fore-end lead weights.
