    Never realized that the operating rod bounced on closure so much. How much grease did you have in the cam pocket?

    Wonder whether this bounce is related to the infamous 7th round stoppage which bedeviled the early development of the Garand.

  • That was really interesting to watch. I knew that the operating rod bounced back on closure but did not realize that it was that much. On the AR you can see that it uses the gas in receiver system by the amount it exhausts. Thanks for posting this Harry
