Trigger Weighing for CMP LEG:  Rifles will be inspected for compliance to CMP rules before the EIC match.  Rifles will first be function checked for safe operation.  Rifle and sling will then be inspected for improper external modifications.  Trigger will be weighed using NRA approved weight set bearing on the trigger while the rifle is held with its barrel vertical and slowly lifted straight up.  To pass the rifle must lift the weight clear of the supporting surface and suspend the weight.  The rifle will then be “jerked’ upward to verify that the trigger falls.  If the rifle cannot be made to lift and suspend the 4-½ pound weight, the competitor may perform the test.  Rifles can be retried after failing until the time to weigh triggers has expired.  Rifles may be sealed after weighing.  The top 15% of finishers will be re-weighed after the match is completed.
