I need to order one of these as mine broke through the threads yesterday afternoon.

I bought this rifle in 1989 or 1990 when I first got into field target. I believe it to be a T01, but see no markings on the gun.

Can anyone please confirm what I have and also, where to look for a cocking arm rod?

Thanks

I used to buy 5mm .8 stainless steel all-thread rod from a metric supplier here and make my own cocking rods. Yes, you could kind of squeak by with 10-32 rod instead, but it's not a PERFECT fit (10-32 is just a wee bit loose in a 5mm .8 nut).

But, in my case, I didn't want to take any chances so I bought the metric rod at a store in Houston that specializes in metric fasteners. The stainless steel gave me more confidence that the rod wouldn't break too easily. FWIW, McMaster Carr also probably sells the stuff, as they have a wide selection of metric parts and fasteners in many materials.

Thanks all for the help. I ordered two rods today from P.A. No markings on the gun, but it does have the metal safety, so it is a T01.

The rifle still shoots as well as it did when it was new and with the original spring and seals.

Thanks again.
