Broken Part Please Help Identify

Post by beaverfever » Mon Sep 17, 2012 10:43 am

Well I was checking out my Garand today and heard a part rattling around inside the magazine/action area. I locked back the action and this fell out when I turned it upside down.

Sorry for the bad picture but if someone could tell me what I need to replace that'd be great. I already field stripped it and couldn't seem to figure out where it came from. Don't have the time right now to detail strip the whole thing and figured I'd see if anyone had any ideas before I started tearing the thing down completely. It looks like it broke off from something larger.
