It is marked D35382 3 SA. While it will fit on any M1 Garand, it is correct for rifles in the approximate serial number range of 197,000 to 1,000,000 (March 41 to October 42).This op rod is offered exactly as pictured and retains its original finish. It shows honest signs of use (as should an early war issue part that has not be refurbished), but certainly not abuse, and is priced accordingly.
