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! 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).
