    The bolt is native to this rifle. The handle however had been modified, I suppose to clear the scope that had been mounted to it. The bolt originally has a NM polish on it which is very distinctive....

    a RIA NM would not have an AV marked barrel. Four screw holes on the receiver only (as you had stated) do not speak for an Unertl mount, but rather a commercial mount.

    I'd replace that safety and that front sight with original ones. Does anyone know which manufacturer made that scope base/mount? I can't remember seeing one like this. A real pity someone modified...
