More Rock Island

No, not the pistol from the company with stellar customer service.

No, this is something else, and it’s (wait for it)…

PAPERLESS!

PAPERLESS! In California! Legally! Wahoo!

It’s a sporterized (tacticalized?) Rock Island Arsenal M1903 30-’06, S/N 306XXX, well above the brittle receiver production numbers, with a Ram-Line stock that has been Line-X’ed, NcStar (yechh) 6-24x50mm scope with mil dot cross hairs, Harris bipod, Dayton Traister Mark 2 trigger assembly (very crisp and hardly any creep), Leupold scope mount and rings, and a Buehler safety. The metal has been re-blued, it’s a deep rich black and shiny as you can see. Picked it up today.

And because it’s more than 50 years old, it was lawfully cash-n-carry in California, no paperwork, no FFL, no DROS, nada. Just tradin’ a gun for money between two California residents.

This is the way everybody should buy & sell guns! Oh wait, everybody outside of California already does so.

    Thanks, Joe. You know what for.

    Mine is similar. .22-250 Varminter (now Remington). Glass bedded in a myrtle stock some forty years ago. Unknown barrel maker, unknown number rounds before I put several thousand through it. It remains capable of 5 shot 3/4″ groups at 100 yds with Speer 55gr. soft points. Me, not so much any more. I can still nail a magpie as far out as I can see ’em though.

    You are welcome. I did something similar once (or twice).
