    Last weekend I was at a gun show and was surprised at the prices of M-1 Garand op rods $150-$200....of course that is gun show pricing but online they are still over $100, $120 for a rebuilt op rod with National Match op rods over $200

    Fortunately when the CMP was still selling op rods I picked up a few but if you have a Garand you may want to think about a spare.

    From one web site.
    "The original M1 Garand op rods are getting EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO FIND, so please consider this now in order to hedge against the scarcity of this item in the very near future."

    Maybe you should contact @RightHand and see if maybe Sadlak Industries would like to make a New Product... Kind of "Right Up their Alley"....

    I would go to Claude Rankin at RAParts.com if I were looking for Garand parts. Claude is a great guy to work with, honest and reasonable.
