    When Jonny Peppers sent his data sheet on sn 56745 to Scott Duff for publication in Duff's book, Duff altered the data on the follower arm and listed it as single bevel (it was a flat back) Duff also listed the follower assembly as early when it was a revision 4) Duff was not familiar with rifles from this period. Later Billy Pyle published the correct data sheet on sn 56745.

    Peter Cardone also bought gas trap sn 42684 from Irl Otte which had been sporterized in Calif and restored

    The gas trap in the 19K serial number range would not have a slant cut op rod

      19059 , 20343, 20816, and 21167 has slant cut op rods. With the exception of 18032 the first vertical cut rods were in the 22k range. It's an overlap period. October, November, December 1939 production dates , serial # 17000 thru 23500.

        Paul, you are correct as I have slant cut op rods on a 12K and 15K

          Probable that 18032 may have been assembled in late November or early December when vertical cut op rods began to show up as they were not assembled in serial number order. I'll have to do a bit of research to see if I can verify a date as to when they changed over.

            Paul, I was thinking about the revision 0 marked on top when I posted

              You're right on the top marked, it would have been too late for that one.
