    Re: OP Rods?

    I have two Bula XM-21 recievers in JAE chassis's with hvy kreigers and both now have GI Op Rods on them. I broke a Bula OP Rod I had on one and replaced it with a GI one before I received my Bula replacement one from Bula...

    The Bula one's LOOK better and was hoping to buy me one to have Bula one's on both of my Bula XM-21 dot guns but guess not! Will stick with GI.

    alpinacsi,
    The one I received tonight was not reconditioned at all and shows that it was well used so I am a happy man!

    Re: OP Rods?

    Are those “reweld” op rods at Numrich cut and welded back together, or just having had material added to the tab?

    They are cut and welded together. Looks to be done well by visual inspection and referencing a NOS original. The tab is worn but at low end of spec. I was hoping it was a reconditioned tab that was referenced by their description. I guess I should have asked first.
