Would prefer a type 2 but I'll take a type 1

Numrich shows them as available but no picture so I'm not sure I trust the condition.

Sort of.

The one that gave up the ghost on my gun (the tab that rides on the back of the barrel shoulder broke) was a one piece, not a riveted bar.  I'd really like to replace it with the same if possible.  It was a type 2 (fin shaped barrel support) but I'm open to a type 1 (round support)

Thanks, but I found the one-piece version I was looking for.

StrangeRanger,

 

I think you've got your numbers reversed. The solid milled grip mount was the first type offered.  The riveted type wasn't manufactured until the introduction of the M1/M1A1 series of guns.  Most collectors refer to the milled type as the 1st variation.
