The Remington rolling block rifle is one of the strongest actions around in the second half of the 19th century. So celebrated was this firearm design that it was adopted by over forty countries around the world including Sweden and Norway. Sweden initially bought in rolling block rifles from Remington but quickly moved into producing their own guns under licence. The 1871 Swedish rolling block rifle was chambered in the 12.7x44R cartridge, this allowed the government arsenals to convert existing muzzleloading rifles they had in stock into the rolling block design.
Many rolling block rifles are chambered in the now obsolete calibre making them legal to own without a licence in the UK under Section 58 (2) of the firearms act. Because of this, there is a strong demand for these rifles amongst collectors and we always find they sell well with us at auction. Should you have a Remington rolling block rifle or any other antique or modern firearms, weapons or Militaria you wish to sell we would be delighted to talk to you about entering it into one of our specialist auctions.
