    Winchester operating rod catch

    Interesting A markings on this Winchester operating rod catch. I have seen two of them to date and know that Redfield has one too. I do not think they are rare just not common to find. Anyone estimate the time period ?

    Never saw "A" stamped accelerator before or maybe just never paid enough attention, interesting

      Babcock states that "A"-marked accelerators have been observed on both A-marked and unmarked op rod catches. He also states that WRA transitioned from the early op rod catch to the later style sometime in the early 2 million serial range. Is his data accurate?

        I would not rely on Babcocks book, it is full of inaccuracys. Its a shame as it does have great pictures. I havent opened mine since I first read it

          One day maybe someone will produce a nice book with color pictures that shows much better detail than black and white photos and updated information that has been discovered since the 1990's. Of course there is no telling what it would cost to produce such a book in color......

              That is true about Babcock . It made it hard for others to gather information and data .
