Swedish Model 1867 Rolling Block Rifle by Remington

  • Price: $695.00
  • Maker: Swedish
  • Model: Rolling Block
  • Caliber: 12.17mm

  • Description: Serial #17960, 12.17 x 44mm CF, 37 1/2” barrel with a fine, bright bore that has some very mild freckling within the grooves. This is an Ilion-made, Remington marked rifle that has an overall mottled gray patina, with streaks of darker plum-brown along the barrel, as well as some mild freckling on the frame. The rifle has all-matching numbers (the frame is numbered on the wrist tangs under the wood) with the blonde wood having a nice added military oil finish over scattered handling marks and blemishes. The brass stock disk is unit marked: “10 R / B / No. 9487”. These rifles were made with a short guide bar on the muzzle and could therefore mount either a sword, or socket bayonet. This is a very good-fine example of an American-made, Swedish Rolling Block in excellent mechanical condition and would make a great addition to any collection of late 19th century military rifles.
