    U.S. Remington, 1870's Swedish Contract Rolling Block 11mm Rifle & Bayonet. Sn 10923:20 - 10923:20

    A U.S. Remington 1870's Swedish Registered 'Rolling Block' 11mm rifle and bayonet. 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. This type of rifle was used in the Franco/Prussian War, Egyptian War 1882 and The Sudanese War 1884-85. This is an excellent original Remington Model 1870 rolling block rifle has a 11mm Bore. It has a 35" barrel (50" overall) and has an external hammer and ladder rear sight. The woodwork and metal work are both undamaged and have a nice patina throughout. The woodwork has only the minor bumps and bruises from normal use which is to be expected of a weapon of this age. It is complete with two sling swivels, bayonet lug and cleaning/ram rod. The cleaning/ram rod has a tulip shaped end typical of the US Civil War. The trigger guard is the No 1 Type. It also has spring type barrel holders which were fitted to the No 1 Rifle. The bayonet lug is of the Argentinian Type. It has three barrel bands. The right plate is stamped with model detail 'DA' and the left with 'DA'. The left side of the stock is stamped with an Egyptian motif. It's loading and firing action works correctly. The bayonet is a French Yataghan for the 1866 Chassepot Rifle and Remington Rolling Block Rifle. It fits perfectly on the rifle. This is a nice example of the French model 1866 Chassepot bayonet with Yataghan form blade (See pages 84 and 92 plate 195 of The Bayonet Book by Watts & White). The steel single edged blade with fuller is undamaged with just very light staining consistent with age. The blade is 22 1/2" long (27 1/4") overall. The back edge of the blade is engraved by manufacturing armoury and dated 1871. It has the correct steel cross guard with muzzle ring and ribbed brass grip with flat spring and steel push button. It is complete with the correct scabbard made of sheet steel. The scabbard has no dents and has it's original strap bar. The price includes deactivation certificate and UK delivery. Sn 10923:20
