The op rod can drag on the stock, the bolt will drag on the trigger group. The op rod has two bends and three straight sections. Google "Springfield Armory, drawing no.D6535382" for more info.
I was able to straighten mine once I realized the actual configuration. I clamped the op rod to a straight edge and used caliper to measure. With a little help from a press I was able to slowly bring the rod back to spec. Spent about two hours checking and tweaking small amounts. Much more checking than tweaking. The op rod is basically parallel to the action and parallel to the gas cylinder.
