Picked up a cherry RIA #302xxx and original BBl RIA 10-18.....the bore is bright and shiny with no pitting or darkness to it. I believe the bolt to be a SA due to the swept back handle marked NS for nickel steel. Parkerize about a 90-95%.......no cartouches on the wood anywhere except for a letter "s" up front on the lower stock/bbl band area.......received a letter from Bruce Canfield stating this rifle is OK to fire since it is a high number RIA with modern surplus ammo. I paid $525.00........how'd I do fellas?....thankyou in advance.......Thomas

Scant stock, the leter "s" is the bigger of the two......bought the boof from Author Ferris and it is a matching bbl for the receiver.......condition is excellent...........looks like someone had sanded the stock at one time due to the very faint, barely noticable cartouche on the left side grip area, looks to be a R.I.A but cannot be sure.............thankyou.........is the price about right or did I pay too much?

Thankyou for the replies here fellas regarding my RIA....I felt it was a better deal for a couple of bucks more than the CMP shooter grade..........Im happy with it, can't wait to fire it.......now where the hell do I find an original correct RIA bolt assembly for this rifle and stock????!!!!!.........Thomas
