Part name: Follower
Part Function: The Follower
Arm is used to push the slide and follower
assembly toward the top of the M1 Rifle in order
to push cartridges into place for feeding. The Follower
Arm gets its 'power' from the follower
rod which is driven by the operating rod spring.
Special Notes: Lubricating the
Follower Arm at the pivot points is a good idea.
