I need to get a new op rod for a garand. my dad got a project rifle off of an older guy in town, its pretty beat and the op rod is bent.

I don't know how you determined that, but it is normal for unfitted operating rods to drag. If that is your problem. Take a look at this page before dumping your operating rod:

http://www.garandgear.com/inspecting-your-m1-garand

If your rod is not tracking there are instructions on how to "fit" (bend) operating rods in The M1 Garand-M14 Shop Manual by Jerry Kuhnhausen

http://www.fulton-armory.com/them1m14shopmanual.aspx

Fitting operating rods is something that must be pondered well before making any bends. It is best to look, think, get a drink, look, think, ponder, look, think, fiddle with the operating rod, think. Sometime after you have really thought how to bend, you bend.
