    M1 Gas Trap Parts Collection

    Hi everyone hope you are all well.

    I've been buying lots of parts the past few months and managed to pick up a few gas trap parts:

    0 marked Clip Latch
    B-8875 Bullet Guide
    B-8868-1 Marked Aperture
    C46001 Marked Rear Sight Base
    D35382 Operating Rod

    Looking forward to adding them to the physical collection when they arrive!

        Trying to kick this string back to life - I need pictures!

        Here is an early gastrap for you guys;



        OK, I am missing a few parts, ... (and that was very much harder to arrange than it looks).

            Don’t you just hate it when gas traps just fall apart like that.

              Haha! I am still awaiting my friend sending over my parts from the good ol' US of A!

              on a side note just picked up a GHS Stock for $500, few cracks and sings but it is what it is!😁😎

                Alright, how about a quiz - what is the most rare part in that picture?

                (Hint; you can only see about half of it. (see, dis is a joke, ... I crack myself up)).

                    Numbered hand guard?

                      If you have two then probably not, though they have become quite difficult.

                      The numbered handguard is one answer that I will take (I have only seen one loose one out there) but I will actually consider it the second most difficult part in the pic - there is something more difficult in there.

                      To be fair, there is a small arrow tip numbered elevation cap in there also (the earliest version?) but you cannot really see any of it so it isn't the answer.

                        Well Jeff, you have piqued my interest now......I was certain the numbered guard was the answer. I don't see anything else that I haven't seen before......
                        unless that is a no revision buttplate screw?

                          Looking closely, I believe that I see the hammer has a flat top. If so, that would make it a model shop hammer. That’s my guess, a model shop hammer.

                            Good eye. I would have to agree with you Brian
                            nice job disguising the parts

                              Ding, ding, ding - we have a winner!!! It is a Model Shop hammer.



                              No numbers at all and when placed next to an early production hammer you can see a slightly different profile at the top by the hooks.



                              I think that gets you a shiny new dime!
