    Rock Island Help

    I just picked up and early Rock 1903 that has a SA 42 barrel on it. Serial # places it in the safe range.
    It has a button on the back end of the floor plate that when pushed the floor plate comes off.
    It functions fine when fed normally just never saw such a thing. Have anyone of you ever about or seen such a set up?
    Any thoughts or comments would be welcome.
    I'll put it back to normal when I get the parts.
    Thanks,
    TacoFrank

    That's how they're supposed to work. Apparently the '03's the Greeks used and sold by the CMPicon, were altered.

    Thanks for your reply Sunray. I thought it was a ""Bubba Special". Think I'll change it back to the original way.
    Thank Again,
