R2163 REMINGTON NUMBER 1-1/2 ROLLING BLOCK
Item # R2163
Sporting rifle with a 30" heavy bbl measuring almost 1" at the muzzle. Cal 44 WCF. The oct bbl is a speckled silver/brown. Receiver also has a very aged patina. Strong rifling and some roughness in the bore. Buttstock is in good overall cond for it's age. A few hairline cracks coming off the frame. Some oil has been rubbed into it over the years. Forearm is also pretty nice. A little shy at the forearm cap. No visible cracks or losses. Sights on this gun are some sort of old Frontier gunsmith adaptation. Front sight looks like it probably was a coin that was fitted to be a blade sight. A good solid old gun.

The 67 was a very good bolt action single shot 22. This one has seen some use. Quite a bit of wear to the blue. Some freckling throughout.

R2124 REMINGTON MODEL 4-S MILITARY MODEL
Item # R2124 -25-572
The Military model was another variation of the No. 4 which had a short production run and is hard to come by. Production is somewhere in the 5k units made. These were a musket style with 28" bbl, long forearm wood and top wood. The top wood is held on by a bbl band. This is a very nice example of the Military model. VG cond overall. Receiver has some case color remaining. Nice smooth metal. Good markings. Bbl has most blue, some of which is fading. There is a hole in the bottom of the bbl which is correct. The threaded hole is for the lug stud for a bayonet which is rarely seen. Wood is superb. No visible cracks or losses. Sling swivels are present. A very good collectable Remington!
Modern $ 1,575.
R2125 RARE REMINGTON No. 4 CADET RIFLE
Item # R2125 -25-568
The Cadet is the scarcest and least known of the Remington No. 4's. They were the forerunner of the "Boy Scout" and military rifles which also are scarce! The Cadet is similar having musket style look with long wood and 28" bbl. The difference is the Cadet did not come with the top wood or bbl band. Production was very limited in 1911 and 1912. This is a fine example with aging blue starting to turn just a bit plum. Some wear and age marks towards the muzzle. Frame is orig case color with light remnants of color remaining. The rest has turned a brown/grey. Bore is dirty and needs a good cleaning and may clean up. Wood is way above average. Butt stock has a nice fit with a couple of very light hairline cracks coming off the frame. Forearm is in good cond with just light crack coming off on the right. There is a rub area on the left. Small petite sling swivels which are correct for this gun. This would fit into any 22 cal collection and especially if you are into rolling blocks.
Modern $ 975.
REMINGTON HEPBURN HEAVY BBL RIFLE
Item # R223-25-586
Caliber 45-70. Overall gun looks great; appears to have been used out in the frontier: it's got a rawhide leather strap around the back of the buttstock to be used as a sling and a mark on the bbl where another rawhide strap had been attached. Overall metal is an aged plum brown coloration and has seen a lot of use with a fair amount of neglect but appears to be very much untouched; complete with double set triggers. No doubt this gun has seen alot of frontier use by buffalo hunters and such. Wood has been cleaned but is sound and solid with possibly an old age crack at the wrist. Very colorful, interesting, Western gun.
