    Uncut Oprod

    Bought what I believe is a service grade CMP M1 in beautiful condition and I think this is one that the CMP rebuilt. Taking it apart I discovered it has an uncut oprod. I've been told these are desirable with collectors of early Garands but have no idea what it's worth. Would it be worth it to replace it with a cut oprod an just hang onto this one.

    Yes, they're worth money to a collector and they also work just fine as is. Remember, WWII was won with un cut op rods. I have one on my match rifle, have shot thousands of rounds with it and it's as good as the day it was new. Uncut op rod failure is waaaaay over rated, as is the tilt test.

      That's good to know. The receiver dates to 1941 so it is likely prewar and therefore the uncut oprod would be appropriate. Even though this is a CMP rebuild at least it appears to have all SA parts except for the new stock.

        It's hard to tell from the pictures, but it appears to be a flat side 9 SA op rod which would be used on rifles built in very late 1944 and first half of 1945

            A '41 I believe would be a -3 op rod.
