    RIA question

    Havenít posted in awhile ...just picked up an RIA 1903 serial number 345xxx with an SA barrel dated 1/31...looks like the original stock ďSĒ style with a smooth butt plate...no cartouches that I can see actually very few inspector marks anywhere unlike my 03a3 Smith Corona which has cartouches and inspector marks everywhere ...anyway was wondering if you think this may have been a rebuild at RIA or was one of those that was sent to Springfield for assembly ...also was wondering when the receiver was built ....barrel seems dirty but in very good shape ...bolt looks good as well not sure how to tell if itís a SA or RIA bolt...would appreciate any feed back ...thanks ! Pics are forthcoming once I remember how to make them small enough to be able to post...
