Having seen the aftermath of a blown-up receiver at the range (it was not a 1903) and a very lucky shooter that happened not to have his hand over the magwell at the time (or he would have lost it) I can't rationalize taking any chances with a firearm known to have even a slight chance of failure from a known manufacturing defect.

Seeing that guy bleeding from his right arm and face from shrapnel head off to the ER, and the rifle in pieces drove home the fact that these are literally controlled (hopefully) explosions at 60,000 psi that are happening inches from your face.

You decide...
