Please click the image for a larger version
Argentine M1879 Rolling Block rifle. Marked on top of breech section of barrel "MODELO ARGENTINO 1879 E.N." and marked by Remington on the frame tang, which is somewhat faint. Very fine condition overall as arsenal refurbished with excellent arsenal blue finish on metal parts. Stock probably gone over at the arsenal and has an attractive color and open grain with a light finish overall and a few scattered minor handling marks and a couple little slivers in the cleaning rod channel. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
