Original U.S. Remington Rolling Block .50-70 with Tangent Sight
Original Item: Only One available. This is a very appealing to the eye rifle, serial #13292, stamped on the both upper and lower butt tangs hidden under the butt stock wood. The rear sight appears to have been removed and the screw holes properly plugged when the adjustable tang sight was fitted.
The strange thing is that appears all exterior markings were intentionally removed with the exception of an S and a B inspection mark.
The caliber of the 35" barrel appears to be .50-70 caliber; the rifle barrel is secured by three barrel rings and comes complete with cleaning rod. Beautiful old wood stock showing oil stains and basically no other use. It has either been wonderfully kept or very tastefully cleaned and restored. A pride to anyone's collection!
The Remington Rolling Block rifle was a breech-loading rifle produced from the mid-1860s into the early 20th century by E. Remington and Sons (later Remington Arms Company). The action was extremely strong, and could easily withstand the increased pressure of the new smokeless powders coming into use by the late 1880s.
It was made in a variety of calibers, both rimfire and centerfire, including the 12.17x42 mm rimfire, 12.17x44 mm rimfire and 12.17x44 mm rimmed centerfire Swedish and Norwegian cartridges, .43 Spanish (11.15x58mmR), .50-70, 40-70,45-70, and later in .22 caliber. Later models were produced in .30-06 Springfield, 7×57mm Mauser, and 8×50mmR Lebel.
