RARE Antique NAVY REMINGTON M1867 ROLLING BLOCK .50 Caliber Pistol
Scarce Rolling Block Pistol with NAVY INSPECTION MARKINGS
Here we present an antique Remington Rolling Block Model 1867 .50 Caliber Pistol made in Ilion, New York. The Model 1867 pistol used a .50 Caliber Remington Pistol Center Fire and a thumb latch activated Rolling Block. It could be said that there was in reality no 1867 Model since the 1867 pistols were contract alterations of the Model 1865. The action was extremely strong and could easily withstand the increased pressure of the new smokeless powders coming into use by the late 1880s. The Remington Rolling Block had a sturdy, simple action that was relatively inexpensive, just what many governments wanted in the latter half of the 19th Century. They were popular with civilians as well. Along with the Sharps rifle it was one of two and 1880s. Civilian Remington rolling block rifles, and later surplus military rifles, became rifles probably used more than any other by the buffalo hunters who hunted the American bison herds in the 1870s very popular among hunters in Scandinavia, particularly for moose hunting, with ammunition for the rifles being commonly available on the civilian market into the 1920s-1930s.
Per Flayderman: In the late 1860s, Remington produced the first of its rolling block pistols, the 1865 Navy chambered in .50 caliber rimfire. These were modified to the 1867 Navy, chambered in .50 caliber centerfire, and all were government contracted for. They were all marked with the Navy inspection marks “P / FCW” on the right side of the frame.
The overall condition is good+. The action is strong and tight. The bore is bright with sharp rifling. The finish has matured to a smooth dark gray patina with signs of weathering. The right frame is stamped “F.C.W.”, for USN Ordnance Inspector Frank C. Warner. Here is a chance to own a truly rare and interesting specimen from Remington!
