    SA National Match Type II

    On a Springfield Armory assembled National Match rifles were the front handguards all glued to barrel band or were some fastened with screws?
    Thanks for any help.

    Glued. Screws were service shops.

    Thank you. Did Springfield Armory take the heat shield out of the front handguard or was that a service shop as well?

    Service shops, SA advised against it. Everything that was allowed was in the annual SA-200 inspection document, the bible for NM construction that was revised every year. SA followed it to the letter.

    Thank you very much for the info, I purchased the rifle today. It has original DCM documents, it is a 5,956,248 serial with a 1/56 bbl ME of 1 and TE of 1.5. It appears to be a type I modified to type II but unfired? I am posting from phone and unable to post pics, but will send them to anyone interested. Any info is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks for looking,

    Did factory made SA National Match rifles have single slot gas screws and was it common to sand the stock when upgrading to type II National Match?
    Thanks for looking.

    Lock Screw

    That's a very interesting subject... old shooters thought the poppet type could leak gas and cause uneven performance, so they wanted the old solid type. SA bowed to this desire and the SIP 200 said the solid type was "preferred" when available. It not specified as a requirement because they insisted that the valve type did not leak gas. However, when IHC had its function problems, one fault was traced to leaking gas cylinder locks!

    Stock were generally not sanded by SA... I say "generally" because I have not seen one that was sanded but, under the heading of "never say never," I can't swear to it.
