I am interested in getting a Sadlak Op Rod Spring Guide and Sadlak TiN Gas Piston from Brownells.

When comparing Brownells listings to Fulton Armory, I notice that Brownells does not have any "National Match" listings in the titles, although the products look similar or identical to that on Fulton Armory/Sadlak website.

Brownells lists the TiN Gas Piston, and leaves out the "NM" in the title but the pictures and price are the same as on Fulton Armory.

Brownells lists the spring guide and leaves out the "NM" in the title, and comparing it to the picture on Fulton Armory, the markings differ slightly.

It seems the gas piston is indeed NM on Brownells, but can anyone confirm that the op rod spring guide is also NM? It doesn't appear Sadlak makes a non-NM op rod spring guide..

Is Sadlak out of stock? If not, get them from the source.
You are right, Sadlak does not make a standard spring guide.
You may have trouble shooting mil surp(147gr) ammo with a nm piston. One of mt M1As' will not reliably cycle with the nm piston and Port surplus.FYI
Get yourself a spare ejector and extractor while you're at it.

Send Brownells an email and ask them. They are very helpful.
