Bill,
Three questions.
1) Rear Sight, marked 'SA' on the right windage knob. USGI or Sprgfld Inc.
2) Trigger group, What would be the mark for H&R?
3) OP Rod, did Sprgfld Armry mark the rod?what does it look like? Not Sprgfld Inc.

Regards

Great! Thanks for the info.
Found that the Trigger group is HR-N, and the Op Rod is not GI, but the two line Sprgfld Inc. Comm part. Also appears that the Sight has the Metric 'M' and 'SA' Gi part, as well as the NM 062 front.

Thanks.

SA Op Rod

SNIPERSRULE said:
A USGI Springfield Armory op rod is marked as follows: 7267064 SA

all on one line.
I have an op rod that I purchased on-line that was represented as an USGI Springfield Armory op rod that is marked:

7267064
SA

The SA is on the second line and in the middle of the above numbers. Is this USGI or Springfield Armory, Inc. commercial made?

Thanks in advance for your reply!

Another way to tell if you have a commercial reproduction operating rod is the lack of a notch just under the handle. Beginning in about 1999, SA, Inc. had that notch put in their operating rods but the point is that if the notch is lacking, it's commercial reproduction.

Bill is correct. I have a 1984 commercial Springfield Armory, Inc. operating rod with no notch that is marked 7267064 on the first line and SA centered below on the second line.

SA Op Rod - Commercial

The SA op rod has no notch. It was advertised on eBay as USGI, but I think the seller really thought it was USGI. It is in excellent shape with minor wear on finish. I paid $100 for the part. I feel the buyer would make it good, but I think I will keep it as a spare. Are there any issues with the commercial SA op rod one needs to be aware of when assembling to a M14 build project?

Thanks for your replies Bill and Different!

Does the -2 after the drawing number on the new SA Inc op-rods correspond to their inclusion of the notch in the rear? In other words, did SA Inc start using the -2 when they started including the notch?
