    Rock Island Firearms Auction May 1, 2016

    Looks like two "gas traps" rifles were sold. I am certain that I know who bought s/n 6927, suppose to have an original gas trap barrel and stock is close - but with a few photos it is difficult to make a good identification. The receiver should be replaced and the front ferrule with lip is missing, it sold for $14950.00

    The other gas trap is serial number 1605, all repro parts on a receiver that also has rebuild markings on the leg, I think this rifle is a good example of all the repro parts that are available. This rifle sold for $4025.00 which is interesting because in 2005, it sold for $9775.00 by Rock Island and was said to have been restored in 1998 and has fake cartouches too

    Very interesting. Do you have the links to the closed auctions? I'd like to see the photos.

        Awesome.....thanks for the links.
        Serial number 6927 looks like it has a lot of really nice parts. I'd have loved to own either of them.....maybe one day!!
        Thanks again for posting those up here.

          Another interesting rifle that sold for $1610.00 was s/n 44702 D28291-2, this is a early revision 2 receiver and with a S-A &-40 barrel and period parts. Also stated to have a trap door stock too.

          Without excellent photos it is difficult to identify import parts and wood
