Re: Rock Islan Armoury 03
If the serial number on the receiver is 141830, I would not buy that rifle. Rock Island receivers below 285,000 had the old single heat treatment; some turned out to be very brittle and a few have burst on firing. I strongly recommend not firing those rifles.
In addition, that rifle has been rebarrelled, and the bolt is not original. Plus it has been in possession of another country, since the US never numbered M1903 bolts in service.
A nice original Rock Island rifle would have considerable collector interest, even if a low number, since RIA didn't make as many M1903 rifles as Springfield did, but that rifle as is has near zero collector interest.
In short, I recommend against buying that rifle.
