RIA Marked Barrel


Dan Pinto has reported an Underwood 2-44 barrel with a
fabricated EU front sight and an Inland KI type 3 barrel band.
This barrel was found “loose” (not part of a barreled receiver).
What is unusual is the RIA stamping on the side of the barrel
above the slide guideway.
Jim Mock suspects that this marking may have been applied
by the commercial firm Rock Island Armory of Geneseo,
Has anyone else seen this mark on a GI barrel?
