**SOLD**SOLD**RARE, ORIGINAL,1872 Dated, U.S. Army Marked Model 1871 Remington Springfield Armoury Rolling Block .50x70 Military Calibre Service Rifle. Sn 13918 - 13918
During the U.S. Civil War, Joseph Rider experimented with several breech loading weapon designs. In 1865, he was issued the first patent for what would evolve into the Remington rolling block action resulting in the introduction of the Remington Model 1871 rifle. The Remingtons continued to invest in Rider's work, and met with Ordnance Department officials in the hope of interesting them in this new design. The rifles made by Remington and under licence by Springfield Armoury were purchased by the U.S. Government but the U.S. Army did not greet the Remingtons with much enthusiasm, despite its superiority to the standard-issue Springfield model 1870. Foreign sales of the weapon were much more successful. Denmark ordered many of the model 1870 and 1871 rifles. In 1873, Spain ordered 50,000 model 1871 rifles, which were delivered in 1875. Numerous other countries, such as France, Chile, Argentina, Cuba, Greece, and Puerto Rico also purchased Model 1871’s. Remington made examples are rare. This is an excellent original U.S. Army Remington Springfield Armoury Model 1871 rolling block rifle in obsolete .50x70 calibre. It has a 36" barrel (52" overall) and has an external hammer, block & blade fore sight and ladder rear sight. The woodwork and metal work are undamaged and excellent.
