    Starting New Post Gas Trap Build

    While collecting M1s over the past 6 years I developed a goal to create and restore a Gas Trap M1 Rifle. I am just waiting on picking up the M1 after all the restrictions are lifted. While collecting and trading parts and rifles I have acumulated a lot of early parts which are too late for a gas trap serial but too early for a WW2 M1.

    I figured the best idea was to work to a post 51K - 100K serial. The parts are as follows:

    1. Short Pinion
    2. Checkered Elevation Knob
    3. Screw
    4a). B8875 Rear Sight Cover
    b) No Dents Rear Sight Cover

    5. - 1 SA Trigger Housing
    6. Trigger Housing Spring
    7. 1 SA Trigger Guard
    8. Trigger with Hole
    9. Trigger Pin
    10. 1 SA Hammer
    11. Hammer Spring
    12. Hammer Spring Housing
    13. Hammer Pin
    14. Plunger in White
    15. Safety

    16. 0 Operating Rod Catch
    17. 1SA Bullet Guide
    18. 1 SA Operating Rod
    19. Grooved Lower Band
    20. Milled Stock Ferrule

    21. Numbered Narrow Base Gas Cylinder
    22. Front Site with Seal

    Looking forward to the next hunt for an M1 to fit the bill!😃😎
