    Thought a few may want to see the modification on the striker so you know what the low serial number 03's have done to them. Mine has a R on it and wondered if it was correct for my RIA?
    Got my New U.S. Infranty Weapons of World War II by Bruce Canfield and I can't put it down. This is the book the photo was taken on. If you are into multiple WWII weapons I can't stress enough to get it. Rick B

  2. Bruce did another nice book on infantry weapons of WWI, that's supposed to be just as nice. Don't have the money saved for that one yet.

    Stock Doc: That's a great photo. Shows clearly which striker isn't hardened enough.
