    Have anymore of these rifles surfaced ?

    Most received the 7th round correction but a few remained in original configuration.

        The only way I could have a gas trap rifle was to build a shootable repro... I bought one of the"Rat Worx" conversion kits with the early style gas cylinder. I put it on a four digit receiver with quite a few original to that period parts. It represents one of the over 1000 seventh round repair rifles that were re-assembled with gas trap parts to use up the stock. I have removed the black finish from the cylinder since the photos were taken.

            What serial number is your rifle ? looks like a revision 0 operating rod

            My photo shows a 41K and 42K and you can spot the difference

              The rifle is a 21k, the op rod is unmarked revision 0.

                  I don't want to hijack the thread, the rifle is not a new find but a known original. Here's two overall pics.

                    My Garand that I just bought has the same gas tube. It has a six digit SN (360xxx). The stock looks like it has been replaced. Why are the gas tubes silver colored? I had not seen this on a Garand before I found this one. The SN dates it at 1942. I saw a picture of a Pilipino Guerilla holding one in a picture online.

                  That is an excellent example ( if I was going to guess the serial number - I would say 21167 - but could be wrong)

                  Could you show more photos of this rifle ?

                      Sir,
                      The link is not working for me.
                      Would you be able to just copy / paste into the text field rather than attaching it to the post?
                      Thanks,
                      ---Brian

                        It may be Photobucket, I was having trouble this evening also. Either way, here's a link:
