What is the difference between a National Match and a Super Match, besides the rear lugged reciever, and for that matter, what the heck is a rear lugged reciever?

Much as I love these rifles, the M16A2 wins the championships every year at Camp Perry.

Match M1 and M14 rifles are kinda like running a 1964-1/2 Ford Galaxy 500 fastback 427 NASCAR race car at a current race. You can't spend enough money or practice enough to win. Yeah they were fast in their day.....

One other item to note regarding National Match and Super Match M1A rifles. The National Match is typically fitted with a mediumweight match grade barrel. The Super Match M1A will have a heavyweight match grade barrel. The difference in barrel weight is two pounds give or take.
