I had an M1 in .308 that had been rebarreled and set up as a match rifle. The gun was an H&R that was all matching except for the barrel.

I suspect from the looks of the op rod, it was a host because of a barrel that had been screwed up using corrosive ammo and not cleaning it properly. Ive seen this on a couple of other M1's that had the issue. Other than some corrosion on the op rod, the rest of the rifle was basically pristine.

Mine always shot well, but I never really noticed any difference in accuracy between it and my M1's in 30-06.

I sold mine, but it took quite awhile, as most didnt seem to like the idea it was in .308.
