No. 1 Rolling Block
Original Rolling Block rifles are once again available
from Remington in two versions, the Sporter, and a Silhouette competition rifle. The Sporter combines a 30-inch round barrel with a pistol-gripped sporter stock of American walnut with sharp-cut checkering on both fore-end and butt-stock. Both barrel and receiver have a polished, blued finish. The barrel is fitted with an adjustable, center-notch buckhorn rear sight and a front blade sight, chambered for the .45-70 Government smokeless powder cartridge, with 1 turn in 18". This latest page from our history creates over-the-counter availability of a genuine Remington Rolling Block rifle for collectors and tradition-minded hunters and shooters.
The Silhouette is chambered for .45-70 Govt., but has a 1 1/8" diameter, heavy round barrel. The barrel has a dove tail front sight, but is supplied without sights to allow the shooter the option of after market sights. A single set trigger is standard equipment on the Silhouette rifle.
