We have prepared an offline ion source mainly for a planned collinear laser spectroscopy of RI beams at the SLOWRI facility in RIKEN. It was designed to provide low-emittance ion beams including refractory elements such as Zr, by combining laser ablation of a solid target in He gas and RF ion guide system [1]. We have connected the ion source to a test beamline and observed about $10^7$ singly charged ions per laser pulse ($\le 10$ Hz) extracted at 10 keV. The current situation including tests to evaluate the performance will be presented.
