Remington rolling block 45-70

Recommended Posts

Rifle was built by gunsmith Bob Lawson for me from an original antique action.  Barrel is 28 inches round heavy contour with 1:20 twist  Wood was built for the rifle by Bob also. Trigger is smooth. Shots great.  $1,200 ships direct to you where legal due to being an antique

Hoping for a number 5.  :-)


Smokeless powder us a passing fad, Horace. Come to the dark side.

that is still about $150-$200 in sights.

And Lawson is (was?) known for really good rolling blocks.  Thank God I am shooting .50-70. LOL!!!

What is the difference between a #1 and #5 action? Will this one handle smokeless powder?


2-3-and 4 :P

The # 5 action was Remingtons rolling block action for smokeless powder ammo. The # 1 action is not proofed for smokeless.  I have a #1 RB in .43 Spanish and a Pedersoli/Navy Arms in 50/140.
