For many years, CMP Competition Rules have included rules for Service Rifle and Service Pistol as well as for the CMP Games events such as the As-Issued Military Rifle Matches and the new Vintage Sniper Rifle Team Match. Since these two sets of rules differ on many points this led to a lot of confusion. To make it easier for match officials and competitors to apply the correct rules for each of the CMP disciplines, the rulebook was divided into two rulebooks. Now each discipline will have its own rulebook: The 17th Edition CMP Competition Rules for Service Rifle and Service Pistol and the 1st Edition Competition Rules for CMP Games Rifle and Pistol Matches.
