    Some more progress made....

    The op rod is a placeholder since it's a -9 curve side. Matches damn near perfectly, of course. The short fork follower rod is good and used as is the op rod spring. Hard to tell, but the op rod catch is actually in the white, just very dirty with good patina.

    LOL.....I've been very fortunate to have access to a large number of gas trap and pre-war parts. A few of the guys that I get parts from here in NJ don't ever go on any forums, and don't even have email addresses. It helps to be close to the old Raritan Arsenal grounds as well. There are still parts here in oddball places.

    Here's the gas cylinder, lock, and screw that I'm going to use on this project rifle.

    Thoughts?

    Okay, so being that I'm snowed in I figured that I should try and make some more progress on this project.

    I decided on this stock, it's a GHS small wheel, unmodified. It appears as though early 1942 would have been a transition period between GHS large wheel and the GHS small wheel, so I think this stock is "OK" to use here.

    Thoughts?

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for the encouragement.
    Had a busy day today with the family, so no time for gun fun unfortunately.
    I did make some contacts for some more parts, so that's always a good thing.
    Stay tuned for updates very soon!
    Thanks again,
    ---Brian

    Ya, if it can be found, Brian will find it!

    Here is the project as of 2244 hours on 12/07/17........

    Op rod catch is late, in the white with bright pin, and no-lip accelerator.
    Follower arm is in the white, WW2 with casting codes.
    Bullet guide is milled.
    Follower assembly is marked "8" on the tail with the late slide.
    Follower arm pin is "stepped."

    Is all of this "correct" for a Spring '42 build?

    Thanks guys!!

    Here are some photos that I just took out in the bright sunlight. The lack of finish on the parts results in a bit of a glare, sorry!
