Keep in mind that the words "National Match" when applied to AR parts are fictitious. There has NEVER been a NM standard for the AR15/M16 rifle like there was for the 1903 or M1 Garand. Those rifle and their parts were actually marked NM from the armory where they were made.

It's just a hook to sell parts for the AR15.

For trigger purposes, it would derive from the USGI NM drawings for the M1/M14 (and the current CMP/NRA highpower rules). 4.5lb draw, crisp break and repeatable.
