    Gas Trap Hardware

    Hi there. I was wondering what the story is behind certain numbered early parts. Is there a certain code lot which goes with a certain serial range?

    For example I have a rear sight base marked B8872 and I have a follower arm marked B8869.

    I have observed rear sight covers marked:
    B8875
    B-8872
    B 8872

    What are the earliest and which codes go with which serial range?

    Thank you.

    Scott

    rear sight covers start with B-8872, B 8872 then B8872 also found with a -3 added on later. Follower arm is B8869 for both double bevel and single bevel

      Ok thank you very much!

      is there a source you use for your info?

      I have Scott Duff's red book and Bruce Canfield's book, As well as some smaller books by other authors all based on the M1 Rifle.

      Thank you.

        The Gas Trap Garand by Billy Pyle is a must have for anyone interested in these early rifles
