Thanks Chris!

 

When you get these springs and test them would you be so kind as to post back your findings here?

 

Best!

 

Steve.

Here's a pic of the new op-rod, and the original op-rod.

I was guessing at what you would want to see, looks like I got lucky.

Looks like the op-rod and springs fit both the early model Carbine rifle gas system as well as the later model RECON system.

 

This is great news!

 

Did you ever take it out and shoot it?

 

I'm still waiting for your results  . . .

 

Best!

 

:D

Op-Rod replacements are no longer available. (Sorry).

 

Op-Rod SPRINGS are still available and I have a few left. (Get them while you can).

 

Best!

If and when RA gets me a new bolt, I can start making Op-Rods again.

 

In the mean time, I still have SPRINGS left for this rifle - PM me if interested.

Just an update . . .

 

Best.
