I haven't gotten around to all the small parts yet, but I'm hoping to get some more photos after work sometime this afternoon.

According to my records, your rifle, RIA S/N 369679, with S.A./3-39 barrel was in a batch of USMC rifles that I "serialized" at the CMP on 31 Aug 2012. "Serialized" in CMP parlance means that I removed the rifle from its original shipping pallet and packed it in a CMP storage pallet while recording the serial number on a CMP serialization sheet. I noted and recorded that your rifle was a USMC rifle, but did not have a Hatcher Hole, and exhibited an "RIA/FK" inspection stamp along with all the other USMC rifles in the batch.

From what I see in your pictures, the barrel was installed at RIA during overhaul using a leftover spare 1939 NM barrel. The star gauge record number is A/1474, which is correct for that barrel.

For your information. Thanks for your patronage!

Nice find! It's too bad the bore is so dark. I ended up with a 1917 with an incredibly dark bore that literally can't hit a 3' x 3' target at 50 yards.

I hope you have better luck with with your rifle.

Looks like I got lucky with my 03’s. The RIA has 12-29 barrel and I think the Rem has the original 12-42 barrel. They both have been D&T for receiver sights though

While the bore is dark, it gauged well, so I would think it would have a decent shot of spinning bullets well, although I don't know how much I would want to shoot it.

100 yds off the bench. The RIA is a 5 round group and the Rem is 10 rds. Both rifles have shiny bores with M.E. of 1.5 or less. I was shooting the same hand load in both rifles
