Description & Condition

Scarce French Remington Rolling Block Type Pistol

Caliber: 11 mm French Ordnance Revolver M.1873 (Army)

Price: $1275

Inventory # apc_0243

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: Scarce French Remington Rolling Block type pistol intended for the civilian market. The pistol shows neither a maker address, nor proof markings. The caliber seems to be 11 mm French Ordnance. Based on the caliber and on the excellent quality of the machining and metal finish, I suspect that the pistol was manufactured in France (although Switzerland also comes to my mind...). The style of the barrel and the grip is definitely European. The rolling block mechanism is of excellent quality. I suspect that the pistol was designed to fire a low pressure 11 mm black powder cartridge and it should not be used with any other cartridge. Handsome hardwood grips with diamond checkering. Half round, half octagonal barrel. The barrel has a blue finish, while all the remaining parts of the pistol display nice case coloring. CONDITION: Fine, with 80% of original finish on metal. The case coloring is somewhat worn. The blue finish on the barrel is nicely preserved. The bore is in good to very good condition. The rifling is somewhat worn and the walls are displaying some cleaning (?) marks/scratches. There is no rust in the bore. The action works fine. Wooden grips are in excellent condition with some minor handling marks. Complete with lanyard ring. Antique. Very attractive Remington Rolling Block type pistol!

Interesting Japanese Rolling Block Shotgun

Caliber: 36 gauge

Price: $850

Inventory # arc_0412

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: Interesting and scarce Japanese made rolling block shotgun. The shape of the shotgun may provide hints as to its origins. In fact, the shotgun does not follow the lines of American and European manufactured Rolling Blocks. The buttstock creates almost a straight line with the barrel. The shotgun features a round barrel with the last few inches near the receiver turning to octagonal shape. Simple non-adjustable front and rear sights. Two step hammer. The buttstock was made without the buttplate. Two sling swivels. There is no manufacturer's address on the receiver tang. No markings can be found on the receiver/barrel assembly. Buttstock has a diamond checkering at the wrist. The shotgun was manufactured without a handguard. The receiver and the trigger guard are nicely engraved in floral motifs. CONDITION: Very good. 70% of original finish with occasional light patina and minor peppering. Most of the finish is turning to uniform brown color. Solid buttstock with minor wear and some handling marks, dings and light scratches. The forestock has a crack on its right side (please, see pictures). There is a piece of wood missing in the front/right part of the forestock. Original finish on the stocks. Very good bore. All the internal parts of the shotgun are in very good condition, with no visible wear. The receiver screws' heads show screwdriver's marks. The firing pin needs either repair, or just an adjustment, as it seems to be stuck in the rolling block. Overall length: 36.50 inch. Barrel length: 24 inch. Interesting gun for the Remington Rolling Block collector! Antique.

Very Interesting Spanish Army Contract M.1870 Remington Rolling Block Infantry Rifle

Caliber: 11 x 58 R, rimmed (.43 Spanish)

Price: $1975

Inventory # arc_0404

Pictures:

DESCRIPTION: The rifle appears to be one of the very last of the original, American made, Remington Spanish Models' ordered by Spain following its official adoption in February of 1871. Spain started production of the rolling block rifles in its own arsenal at Oviedo in 1870. There is a Spanish Bourbon Fleur d' Lis mark on the left side of the frame, which indicates Spanish ownership of the rifle. The markings on the right side of the buttstock, "MO" most likely stand for "Modelo" (Model). The number, "2367" mistakenly stands for Feb. 3, 1867, which should be 2.3.71 for Feb 3, 1871 (thus it was lined, or canceled out as a mistake). The second number starts with letter, "PC " (Patria Cubana?, Philippine Constabulary?). The rifle may have been issued to the Cuban Colonial Garrison, or to the Philippine Constabulary. Spanish Crowns are stamped on each of the three barrel bands. Three-lines, new style Remington address on the tang. Two piece walnut stock without the handguard (correct). Second issue type breech block without screw for retaining the firing pin. Solid type barrel bands retained by springs in the stock. Round barrel. Ramp-and-leaf rear sight hinged at the back of the block. Two step hammer. Concave buttplate. Complete with the cleaning rod. This type of rifle was used in large numbers during the Spanish-American War. CONDITION: Excellent. There is about 92% of the original finish on metal, turning to brownish color in some places. Occasional spots of light patina. The stocks show some minor handling marks. Otherwise, the stocks are solid and smooth. Nice, crisp action. Excellent bore with strong and shiny rifling. All the internal parts of the rifle are in fine condition, with no visible wear. The rifle does not show any repairs. All the parts are original to the rifle. Overall length: 50.50 inch. Barrel length: 35 inch. Very interesting Spanish army Remington Rolling Block rifle from the time of Spanish-American War! Antique.
