For me, the really fun part of this match is picking which sniper rifle to use. Basically, any legitimate sniper rifle from World War I to the Korean War is kosher. Replicas are allowed and encouraged. Scopes can be original, replicas, or, in some cases, older low-power commercial scopes that are similar to the original military glass. Guns must be as issued, have no caliber bigger than 8mm, no bedding, and no special match triggers. For a complete list of rules and equipment descriptions, look under "competition rules" at thecmp.org.
