Where may I find the rules, as they apply to firearms and ammunition, for a NRA "Service Pistol" Match? 
Can't find anything in the 2020 NRA Pistol rulebook other than one item listed as "U.S. Service Pistol" in the Index section which in turn refers to section 3.1 of the rules. Rule 3.1 has to do with "Operational Safeties".....

The distinguished service pistol designation is a CMP award. Not NRA.

That's not what he's asking.
Respectfully, 
He's asking for any information on a sanctioned NRA Service Pistol 900 match scheduled in Michigan for September 20th.
so far best I can find is.

From the discussions I had with the NRA a few years ago, they dropped their Service Pistol rules when the CMP expanded the definition of what a Service Pistol is and the ammo associated with it.  So they didn't forget the section, they deleted it on purpose.

Use to be the service pistol rules were so strict that you could not even have Allen head grip screws!

I know.  It's pretty frustrating. I would defer to the CMP Rules in this case, since the NRA Rule Book does not cover it anymore. I guess someone at the Michigan match has an older copy of the rule book and does not realize the change.

Evidently it is a MRPA run and a NRA sanctioned State Service Pistol Championship. How does the NRA sanction a match that doesn’t haves NRA rules? I did send an email to the MD but have not heard back yet. The rules that are listed in the match bulletin do not exist in the rule book, so the bulletin may be a copy of one from years past with just dates changed. I have a service pistol for CMP use.....but do we play by CMP rules? Very confusing....and inquiring minds need to know.😃

The match does not seem to be listed on either NRA nor CMP sites either.
No help there!

The NRA will sanction such a match if the required information is provided.

1.6 Types of Tournaments - The types of tournaments listed
below are those that are sanctioned by NRA in its competitive
shooting program. 

(j) Special Tournaments - May be sanctioned by NRA for
types of shooting not otherwise a part of the NRA program.

One would assume the requesting organization provided the requirements for the Tournament. They could have just referenced the 2016 or previous rules?

Take your current Service Pistol and just shoot it would be my process.

NRA sanctioning of other tournaments has a big place in New York State handgun competition.  The law for nonresidents bringing handguns into NY for matches only allows for events sanctioned by NRA or IHMSA. IDPA, IPSC, USAS, etc. are not written within the law and are not covered.  However, by sanctioning your event with NRA, it becomes legal for nonresidents to compete.

Here is a portion of the exemption law.  NOTE that a current version should be reviewed prior to entering the state and further restrictions are included:

Possession  of  pistols  and  revolvers  by  a  person  who  is a
  nonresident of this state while attending or traveling to  or  from,  an
  organized  competitive pistol match or league competition under auspices
  of, or approved by, the National Rifle Association and in which he is  a
  competitor, within forty-eight hours of such event or by a person who is
  a  non-resident  of the state while attending or traveling to or from an
  organized  match  sanctioned  by  the  International  Handgun   Metallic
  Silhouette   Association  and  in  which  he  is  a  competitor,  within
  forty-eight  hours  of  such  event. . .
