    Service Rifle question

    Does anyone know if this rifle qualifies for NZSRA service class?


    Does the barrel need to have the cuts for the grenade launcher (govt profile) or can it be standard straight barrel?

    No it should be fine in general however the "A Cat" stock is not standard and the muzzle break isn't either. You could e-cat it and change to a normal A3 and compensator.

    from the “standard” is detailed below.

    Awesome thanks guys, I would ditch the AIL stock and put an A2 buttstock on & lose the muzzle break for a standard A2 birdcage. Just wasn't sure about the barrel, for some reason can't download pdf's atm on my phone for the SR match code.
