Rock island parts id
I recently picked up a RIA 1903 sporter(2959XX). Nothing has been messed with the exception of the stock. I acquired a stock. How did RIA mark their small parts, bands, bayonet lug, bolt parts, etc. Thank you in advance.

Most small parts are not marked but made with a RIA “style” of mfg which when compared to a SA part becomes easy to see the differences. Stocks were marked on the end cap and inspection markings.

Did you make the low/high number cut off of 285,507?

I think some RIA small parts during that WWI period have a small shell and flame stamp.
