    Drill Rifles

    Are 1903 drill rifles safe to re-activate? Does the weld at the front receiver ring ruin the heat treat?

    I have "re activated" several over the last few years,and still use them. All of the ones that I received had fairly light weld on the ring,so I never worried...this being said,don't do something just because I did

    Since there are tons of them out there and I have never heard of a failure I would have to say they are safe. Merry Christmas
