    Very Early Op Rod

    This is a very early op rod, marked D-35382-0 (top). Note the arsenal repair to the front end, which included a new piston.
    I'm very fortunate to have been able to add this to my collection recently.

    Interesting . They repaired the tube. My weld seam had the tube replaced.

            Very rare to have a weld seam operating rod, do you have a photo of the entire operating rod showing the seam ?

              I don't have a photo, but perhaps Bubba will send me one to post up. I believe it has had its tube partially replaced similar to the early op rod that I posted above.

            I think I'm going to use this op rod on a 4XXX receiver that's been modified for the 7th round stoppage. The finish on each matches very well, and since both have been refinished that would "make sense." As for the barrel, I just got a real clean 7-41 barrel that also has a finish (original though) that matches damn near perfect.

            Thoughts?

                Absolutely!
                I'll gather some more parts together, like the rear sight and bolt, then snap some pix. Everything that I'm going to use on this conversion will be very dark finish-wise.
                It should be interesting!!
