I’d like to attend some local high power matches and have a few questions regarding equipment. I’d like to use parts that I already have in hand rather than buy something new, if possible. I’ve been through the NRA and CMP rule books and can’t find an answer on two points.

#1. Is a VLTOR A5 buffer allowed, or must the buffer be standard carbine or rifle?

#2. Is the rifle and/or furniture allowed to a different color than black, or does this violate the “visual appearance” clause?

Thank you
