    Post WW2 SA Rebuild question

    Hello Guys,

    I have a question please regarding post war SA rebuilds, mainly those done soon after the war. Specifically I was curious about the op rods and rear sights, were they always switched out for the D35382SA's and the T105's respectively, or only when they were worn/damaged like the other parts that were replaced?

    Thanks!

    The D35382SA is a replacement op rod that was used during the rebuild program as needed. If other op rods was found to be inspec a relief cut was added and they were used
    On "most" rifles the lock bars were replaced with the T105

        A LOT of uncut op rods made it thru the rebuild programs without being modified. If you have an uncut rod and are stressing over it, DON'T. I have an uncut rod in one of my M1's (my match-prepped M1) and never give it a thought.

          Above info is all correct. I have a July 44 SA that was rebuilt in the late 40s in San Antonio and it kept its type 3 lock bar and its uncut opp rod. Great rifle...shoots awesome!!!
