my new SA M1A arrived today. Overall Im pleased but after having the loaded I was a little spoiled. I got a TRW barrel dated 12/63 thats cool. GI gas cyl. FH rings like a bell...good. I was hopeing for a GI bolt and Trigger assem. But no. But that can be changed. No biggy. I got it home and tore the whole thing down and cleaned out all the factory grease and oil. It was loaded down too. When I put it all back together I noticed the action was a little rough. Draggy. I got to looking and with the bolt in the locked back position it seemed that the OP rod was bent. The draggyness was the spring not entering the OP rod guide square. In the locked back pos. there was a 1/16 gap in the area between the rod and the track of the reciever. I compared this to the other rifle and told myself that "this things bent" I fiddled with it and tweeked it some and got it better but I may be sending it back to SA for a new Op rod. Opinions ?
