    revision 9 follower & slide

    You would think by this point in time, that more revision 9 marked followers would have surfaced ? To date the only known rifles reported as original that had the revision 9 followers are serial number SA 533252 (reported in 2010) and later 542256. Since that time a few loose number 9 followers have been found and years have passed without any additional discoveries. I found a #9 among some parts that a dealer friend was selling in 2009. Billy Pyle once told me there could be a number 10 that had a very short life in service too Click image for larger version

      Lots of 8 middle marked. I’m not sure I would call them uncommon. For a while they seemed hard to find but once I started looking they appear routinely on the CMP forum and eBay. I don’t really collect parts just for parts sake, but I guess I should have bought the 9 I saw on eBay about 3-4 years ago. It went about a month before someone eventually bought it. Probably hits the very uncommon area as I’ve only seen 3 but then again I’m not looking very hard. Right in there with -2sa hammer.

        Also very difficult (for me) to find a number 3 follower, I had an unmarked number 3 that Charlie Redfield had given me, but it took along time to find the number 3. Click image for larger version
