HOUSING, PISTON – GAS CYLINDER, M1 GARAND 1 G.I.: WWI SPRINGFIELD ARMORY, WITH FIELD MODIFICATION ARMORER’S “CUT”, NO SIGHT. EARLY IN THE WAR THEY FOUND THAT THE CYLINDERS WERE COMING LOOSE DURING USE SO THEY AUTHORIZIZED A FIELD MODIFICATION TO MAKE A “CUT” IN THE SIGHT BASE SO THAT WHEN THE SIGHT WAS TIGHTENED INTO PLACE THE SCREW WOULD ALSO TIGHTEN THE CYLINDER TO THE BARREL. IT WAS NEVER DONE AT AN ARMORY. JUST AN ODDBALL PIECE FOR A COLLECTOR.
