Remington Rolling Block No. 1 Sporter help

Post by SAKO » Sat Oct 03, 2015 11:43 am

Picked this up as part of a collection I purchased recently. It's a No. 1 Sporter that appears to have the single set trigger with a bone front sight in .46 rimfire. Other than that, I don't know much else about it and I'm looking to learn more. I'm also trying to figure out what these are going for currently. Any help is appreciated.

WOW! I too sure would like some enlightenment on this one. Plus, the S S Trigger is awesome, is 46 a rimfire or one of the obscure cartridges?

Here is a copy of a post that I placed in the pre-1899 section, under topic "Activity, or the lack thereof".
If I started a new post there might have been a reply.

I have a question regarding a sporting Rolling Block.
A friend of mine just purchased an unusual one from Rock Island Auction.

http://www.rockislandauction.com/viewit ... 5/lid/1075

He doesn't have a computer, so asked me if I could help explain the use of "Remingtons"
rather than "E. Remington & Sons" on this rifle. We know some O/U Derringers were marked this way, but in the late 1860's. With the last patent marking of 1874 it would have had to be later.
We discussed the time frame when it might have been produced. Was it before, during, or after the reorganization?
His thinking is it was made in the late 1870's or early '80's.
If I remember correctly, it is 44 rim fire.

The barrel says its in .40 caliber, Maybe some closer look is in order. Set triggers were a nice feature to add to a rifle when ordered. Look under the forearm and see if it says ST on the barrel. ST=set trigger. value if + or - $1500 if center fire and much less if rim fire. imho Don

If you enlarge the photo showing the bottom of the barrel it is stamped 46 CTG'E the bottom part if
the 6 is a little larger then your standard 6 making it look like 40 and not 46.

Have a Good Day,
Matt

Definately a '6'.
