    Type 1 Gas Cylinder

    I'm very fortunate to have been able to add this Type 1 gas cylinder to my collection recently. The plug is a Type 3 and the front sight is a later variation with the flared wings. The stacking swivel is numbered. Many thanks to those that made this acquisition possible.

      Hi Brad, thanks!!
      Check out this link: https://www.m1garandforum.com/forum/...tacking-swivel

      I have two that are like that. They are said to have come off Blue Sky Import rifles. The area around the numbers is slightly raised, and there's not really any signs of laser engraving etc...

      They are very different than known authentic examples, but who knows for sure. Some here say their likely fake. I really don't know to be honest.

      Cheers!

          I can’t tell you for 100% certain but the font vs. photos I have of real ones is different.

            I appreciate that info very much, thank you!
            If they turn out to be fake then I'm throwing them in the ocean along with all the other fake crap that I've accumulated over the last few years!!

              Here is a numbered stacking swivel that I got in the late 90's - is it fake or original ?

                There were a lot of fake gas trap front sights available since the late 80's. The first ones were from Joe Sturdy and looked good and machined from steel. Early gas cylinder with flutes in photo has one of these joe Sturdy sights Click image for larger version  Name:	P1010024_0020_020.jpg Views:	0 Size:	48.8 KB ID:	19410

                  This one looks real to me. Confirm?

                    Not 100% certain, but I think it could be original . The off-set drawing number to the left side does provide room
                    to add a -1, -2 or -3 to the drawing number. RCS

                  Do you a better picture of the front sights?
