Remington rolling block conversion of civil war musket. 39" barrel, appears to be 58 centerfire caliber. Flayderman 5E-082. This exact rifle was featured in the December 2014 of "U.S. Martial Arms Collector" in an article called "Remington Transformed Civil War Musket". A copy of the magazine is included. Patent marked on tang. Metal parts have an attractive untouched smooth chocolate brown patina with minimal rust or pitting. Buttstock has a neatly stamped italic H on left side. Has a repaired, well hidden wrist crack on left side, a couple small nicks in the forearm where it meets the frame, and a couple bruises of note in the forearm, otherwise shows smooth wear and use with minor handling marks. Mechanically good, sold as a collector item only, not warranted safe to shoot.
