Bula Op-Rods

Does anyone know if Bula uses the two piece or the one piece method for creating thier Op-Rods? I'd ask in their forum but it seems that they no longer are a site-sponsor.

Fairly sure the two piece method is used, perhaps Art knows.

I hope I didn't make them angry.

And, yes, of course it would be about me. .

Yep, 2 piece. Only one piece would be either Chinese or TRW.

Hi,
Well... Any Company that will put their logo on an op-rod...

Must be pretty confident, about it's quality and durability!!!

Just sayin!

The question has been answered in terms of manufacturing method; however, I have several BULA Op Rods on some of my best shooting rifles.

Over the past several years I have accumulated a nice stash of the BULA Op Rods. The quality is excellent, the price/value was excellent and for the money I can have a brand new Op Rod vs. a used or re-tabbed USGI Op-Rod on a new build. Just one of those parts that BULA produced that was a great value.

I remember BULA doing an initial group buy for our forum when they started producing the Op-Rods and you could get them for $150.00 - that was a great value.
