    Op Rod Catch question please

    Hey Guys,

    I've been trying to educate myself on the various components of the Garand and wind up going down different rabbit holes, one being the Op Rod Catch. Is the darkened accelerator pin a true indication that the part is WW2, versus the bright pin?

    Thanks!

    A dark pin means the catch was re-parked. A bright pin usually means the finish of the catch is original.

        Springfield added the "lip" to the accelerator and began to surface around mid to late 1942

        Some Winchesters have a A stamp on the accelerator

          The added lip detail is great to know, thanks! The progression of these catches isn't as obvious as many of the other parts.

                  I found this illustration of one with the lip (right) and the other without.
