M1/Op-rod Spring

Hi all,
Under Methods of Inspection and Tests. Of at least 10 rifles, of each lot of rifles, how many cycles of lets say the op-rod spring. "Stressed through the same range and approximately the same velocity and chance of motion as in service." should be made.
Have fun with this one.
Thanks again
Clancy

Sorry your not there yet. However you might find the answer to be weird.
As most of you know I wait a few days for the answer. The reason is I post the same quiz on other sites. I have found if I give the answer to one group other guys jump over there to be the first to answer here. I can't let that happen it would be unfair to the others.
Thanks again
Clancy

Hi all,
The answer to this quiz is 20,000 cycles for ALL springs on the M1. What I find odd is that the Endurance Test for the M1 Garand Rifle is only 6,000 rds.
Getting hammered on CSP so may not post for sometimes. Thanks for all your support.
Thanks again

It's a shame! I just read the CSP string... it's easy for people to be so rude when they don't have to post their names.

Please come back soon!
