Eliphalet Remington II 1816 Flintlock Rifle & Certificate of Authenticity (#421)
Offered for sale is a once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of history, an 1816 Remmington Commemorative Flintlock Muzzleloading Rifle. This rifle was reproduced by the Remington Custom Shop in 1995, in very limited numbers. The rifles were made in the old methods handed down by Eliphalet Remington II. It has a 1-66 twist and is in 50 cal. It's believed by some uninformed individuals, that Remington contracted out the production of these firearms to the likes of Hatfield and others. This is untrue and is pure unfounded speculation on the part of those individuals making the claims. All of the rifles produced were by Remington as verified by their own tutorial. None of these rifle were made exactly alike, so you can have the pleasure of knowing that you'll own a very distinctive rifle. They were produced in very small numbers, said to be less than 750 total. The rifle has never been fired and has been handled very little. The frizzen is unmarked and has the original flint intact. It has a Ketland style lock which is robust in construction. It has been properly lubed to maintain it's original finish and mechanical condition. Additionally, it comes with a certificate of authenticity which verifies it's originality and all the appropriate paperwork of purchase. I'm offering this rifle for a very limited time. Don't miss your opportunity to own it.
