    early SA follower arm

    I was fortunate to find a SA unmarked beveled follower arm from a good friend, these are very difficult to locate and the angle is different from the Winchester types. This is the last Springfield beveled follower used. This follower arm is in my 41K rifle and need another for my 42K

      That is really interesting. I didn't realize that SA produced a unmarked beveled follower arm. Thank you for sharing that. Gives me something else to look for in this hobby. Kevin

        original data sheets (GCA Journal from last few years) show unmarked beveled follower arm in 30K gas trap rifles

        Still not certain about 41K but would guess unmarked beveled follower arm

          I actually have one of these myself and have it on my March 41 SA. I had originally found a flat Back Follower arm for it but was informed that the single bevel SA follower Arm would have been more likely.

          The flat Back is on hand to br used in my Post Gas Trap/Early Gas Port build.

            Scott, The single bevel Springfield follower arm only lasted until the early 40K serial range at best -

            part of the problem started years ago when Duff published his data sheets, he showed the single bevel follower arm up to sn 289048.

            Duff changed the data on Mr Peppers s/n 56745 as it had a flat back, likewise on 79115. furthermore, collectors never found or knew the
            correct single bevel follower arm to use and used the common Winchester follower arms on their restorations

              Thank you mate. Amy idea which follower arm serial 200442 should have?

                Also so does this mean in chronological order earliest at top:

                Numbered
                Single Bevel
                Flat Back
                With Forge Numbers

                Many thanks.

                  chronological order (Using Paul's new M1 rifle data sheet)

                  1) double bevel 2) single bevel 3) small shelf (use to call double flatback) 4) flatback 5) no bevel

                    Thank you, would you happen to have pics of a small shelf?
