Does anyone know the max width of the bullet guide slide rails cut in the receiver. I got a new guide, but there is still a fair amount of play, ie tilt, bakc and forth in the guiderails. Are all the guide bars on the guide rail cut to the same width or are some wider than others. While my receiver is a 2.5M SA I can't beleive it saw that much action that the guiderails would be worn. But its quite a bit more play than my Korean HRA and SA corects.

I don't have specific dimensions for you, but I have M1's that are tight and some that are loose. It's funny that you mention a 2.5M serial number. I have two 2.5's and one is tight and the other, while there is no play, drops right in. The 2.5M serial number rifles were built at the height of WWII and I think tolerances were allowed to be a little looser to get the rifles out for the war effort. Tolerances were held a lot tighter on the post war rifles.

I recently received a late war production SA that had a bullet guide that was very loose in the receiver cut. I don't know if the guide or the receiver was out of spec but I placed the bullet guide on an anvil and struck the ends that engage the receiver cut, stretching it slightly. It now fits very nicely.
