Op rod tab slot dimensions ?

I just got a M1A after being away for a few months and I'm having a little issue with my Op rod.

The Op rod seems to have a little slop to other rifles I've had. With the spring in or out I can easily take out the op rod. It just seems (to me) that it comes out a little too easily. The tab has very little wear (within specs).

My question is...Does anyone know what the dimensions of the dismount slot/notch should be? Mine measures at .365 at the widest part of the slot.

Can the oprod tab come out at any location or just the dismount notch?
