At auction is a REMINGTON No 1 ROLLING BLOCK RIFLE in .44-50 or 70? THis old timer has a 28" hex barrel with a bright shiny bore, sharp rifleings and the slightest hint of rust or pitting just in front of the breech. The bottom hex flat of the barrel shows "44" and, very faintly "CRTG" I think. Under the forearm is "1023" on the barrel and also on the tang behind the trigger guard. I beleive the folding rear peep sight is factory installed but not sure. The front blade sight has a white dot on the blade. The receiver is missing the left side plate and was probably nickel plated when new. The forearm and stock are original and the forearm has a small splinter chipped out at the right side at the breech. The top tang shows "REMINGTONS ILION NY. USA." Second line is patent dates. Rifle weighs 9 lbs., and is 43 3/4" long. About 12,000 were made starting in 1868.
