RESERVED RESERVED **MINT BORE**C1870's American Remington USA Patent Rolling Block .46 Obsolete Calibre Cavalry Saddle Carbine With Saddle Bar & Ring. Sn 20473 - 20473
The Remington Rolling Block rifles and carbines were breech-loading weapons produced from the mid-1860s into the early 20th century by E. Remington and Sons (later Remington Arms Company). The actions of these weapons were extremely strong, and could easily withstand the increased pressure of the new smokeless powders coming into use by the late 1880s. This is a very good original Remington rolling block saddle carbine. The metal has even patina. The action tang is marked with faint Remington Ilion N.Y USA patent detail (illustrated). This small carbine has a 20” barrel (34 ¼” overall). The bore is near mint, clean & bright with crisp rifling. It has an external hammer, extractor plate, steel butt plate, pinched blade fore sight and flip up rear sight. The wood full stock is all original and has just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The wood is impressed with what are most likely factory inspector’s marks (illustrated). It is fitted with a steel saddle bar & ring. The loading and firing actions work crisply. The price includes UK delivery. NB As an obsolete calibre antique rifle no licence is required to own this rifle in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 20473
