    The M1885 Remington-Lee also known as the M1885 Lee, and Navy M1885 is a bolt action, box magazine rifle designed principally by James Paris Lee. It first appeared in 1879, manufactured by the Sharps Rifle Manufacturing Company. Eventually Remington took over production. Arguably the most modern rifle in the world at that time, the rifle utilised the first successful box magazine. The design was incorporated by the British into the Lee-Metford and Lee-Enfield rifles, thereby becoming one of the most widely used rifle designs of the 20th century. Remington's version saw limited use by the U.S. Navy. The model 1885 rifles were used by Mounted troops including The U.S. Rough Riders and Saw service in the Boer War as private purchase volunteer weapons. New Zealand purchased 500 Model 1885's for its militia in 1887. This is an excellent original Model 1885 Remington Lee rifle in the obsolete 11mm Mexican calibre, one of the 500 supplied to New Zealand. It has excellent original undamaged wood work and metal work throughout. It has a block & blade foresight, ladder rear sight, sling swivels and steel butt plate. The wood stock has 4 small contemporaneously hand carved notches in the stock possibly 'kills' marked by a period user. The breech is marked with New Zealand War Dept 'NZ' with arrow mark and weapon number '87' (of 500). The left side of the breech is stamped 'Patented Nov 4th 1879'. It's bolt action cocking and firing mechanisms work perfectly. The rifle is fitted with an original correct U.S. Army socket bayonet. The bayonet has a triangular blade which is clean and straight. The blade is stamped 'U.S' (Army). The bayonet has it's original leather scabbard with integral leather belt hanger tab fitted with brass belt hook which has a U.S Army 'U.S' embossed roundel.
