What can you tell me about this op rod? Is it Chinese? A re-weld? Repaired? I received it with some other parts and I’m trying to figure this one out.

Looks cast. I don't trust that op rod. Bolts and op rods are the particular parts I want completely USGI. YOur safety depends on them. I don't mind using aftermarket gas tubes and flash hiders. But those two pieces..have got to be USGI or I will not fire it.

Plenty of used USGI ones -

Be safe.

Have you fitted it to a rifle? I’m curious if it slides well in the track. Looks chinese to me. Chinese op rods are forged, I believe, and can be very good. With the Chinese parts I’ve seen, the machining can vary in how it looks.
