ALL ANTIQUE RIFLES SOLD AS-IS. NEVER ATTEMPT TO FIRE AN ANTIQUE WEAPON WITHOUT CONSULTING A GUNSMITH. SEE PICTURES FOR CONDITION AND DETAILS

This original 1879 Argentine Rolling Block Rifle is still "in the white" and was never refinished or blued/reblued before being shipped back to America. There are swirls of natural browning but the metal is still bright in most places. In-the-white rifles are extremely rare.

This rifle was made between 1879-1882 by E. Remington and Sons for export to Argentina when Argentina had one of the most well-equipped armies, and most stable economies, in the world.

The three line Remington name and address on the tang has been mostly rubbed off through use, but some parts are discernable. The model and date information, as well as the 699 serial number are easy to read.  The barrel is marked Modelo Argentino1879 E.N. (which stands for Ejercito Nacional - the Army of Argentina). This is a very good example complete with an Austrian-style "Werndl" rear sight, and original ramrod, sling swivels and bayonet lug. The action functions perfectly and the bore is nice with crisp rifling and a nice if a bit dark. There is a chip in the stock near the trigger, otherwise the stock is extremely solid.

Caliber is .43 Spanish (11mm Spanish). Barrel is approx. 34.5 inches from receiver to muzzle.
