Remington's Last Rolling Block: the No.7 Target Rifle
Cool Forgotten Weapons merch! http://shop.forgottenweapons.com
Remington introduced the No.7 Rolling Block in 1903, and it was the last pattern of the action to be introduced. They were expensive, hand fitted guns, costing $24 in 1903 (compared to $12 for a standard No.2 pattern Rolling Block). The only reason Remington made them was that they were built on 1871 pattern Rolling Block pistol frames, which were left over and unused in Remington’s warehouse – so why not sell them in a new configuration? The standard barrel length was 26 inches, with 24 and 28 available optionally, and they were chambered for .22 Short, .22 Long, .22 Long Rifle, .25-10 Stevens Rimfire, and .32-20 centerfire. The grip of the pistol frame made for a very nice target rifle, and these were sold with fancy tang mounted aperture sights. Only 350 were made between 1903 and 1910, numbered from 300001 to 300350.
