    According to the latest rule book that I have, the sling is optional for off hand on the NRA match rifle, but is required on the “service” rifle.
    By rule book definition: PARADE POSITION (OF THE SLING)“The position of the sling when it is attached to sling swivel on the butt stock and the forearm and drawn tight.”
    Hope this helps

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. The "parade sling", as you point out, is as I thought. Not ever having been a competitive match shooter I was unaware of the rules for "off hand" regarding the use of the sling.. I could only go by how I recall being taught in boot camp and how the sling was used in yearly qualifications. I had seen reference to the keeper being reversed, as you pictured, and can see how it would be helpful for match shooting. I also know that had I fell out for inspection with the sling on in that manner it would have been a lap or two around the parade ground. LOL
    My guess is that the military decided that with the latch of the keeper on the inside there was less chance of accidently opening the keeper while carrying the rifle at sling arms.

    HI Joe,
    I can see that with the keeper lock on the inside (opposite from what I use) the keeper lock would not irritate the shoulder when marching at right shoulder arms. I just think that for match shooting my way is a little handier.

    "Irritate the shoulder", come on, we were Marines. LOL

    doesnt look complete. Contact CMPicon with letter and 25 bucks fro them to research.

    Will the CMP research a serial number to see if it had ever been sold by the DCM or CMP?
    We will perform the research. Research often involves going through boxes of old records. Our files are only complete from 1996 to the present. We do have some earlier files, but know they are incomplete. We require a letter request with payment and we will respond by letter stating if we found anything, and if so – when we sold it and what model it was we actually sold. We will not identify original purchaser. Allow 2-3 weeks per serial number.
    We regret not being able to perform this service for free. We receive dozens of requests each week and it can take up to one hour just to find that we do not have any record of a serial number being researched. Charge is $25.00 per serial number, prepaid, whether we find anything or not.
    If interested, send letter to CMP, ATTN: Serial Number Research, 1401 Commerce Blvd., Anniston, AL 36207.
