Remington Rolling Block Three-Band Fullstock Single Shot Military Rifle, with associated leather sling, NVSN, .43 Spanish CF cal., with Lee reloading dies and 20 pieces of brass; 36'' blued round barrel with short octagonal section at breech, block-blade front and adjustable folding leaf rear military-style sights, fitted with a long sliding bayonet stud on right side at muzzle; three blued steel barrel retaining bands (middle band with sling swivel), and slotted and grooved cleaning rod. Large No. 1-size case hardened steel receiver is marked on top tang ''E. Remington & Sons, Ilion, N.Y. U.S.A.'' followed by nine patent dates in three lines total; two-piece oil-finished walnut stocks include forestock and buttstock with lower sling swivel and steel rifle buttplate. Mfg'd 1867-88. Condition is excellent. Barrel retains approx. 98% original military blue finish, along with the bands, hammer, breechblock, triggerguard and buttplate; receiver case hardening has darkened and silvered out, especially on both sides. Stocks fit ''proud'' to the metal, retain some of their original surface ''feathering'' and good color, with a bit of knackering at bottom of forestock between top and middle bands. Edges and markings are sharp; action is smooth and strong; bore is clean, shiny and with pronounced rifling. Sling is mostly smooth having a good russet color and occasional age cracking and finish loss. Caliber should be checked by a competent gunsmith before firing. Est.: $500-$800. (Antique)
