One of less than 750 manufactured by Remington circa 1900-1911, the Target Model of 1901 rolling block pistol marked the end of the Remington rolling block pistols. In the words of author Jerry Landskron, "It was the last and finest production model manufactured by the Remington Arms Company" (page 215 of "Remington Rolling Block Pistols"). Both the adjustable receiver mounted rear sight and blade front sight are non-factory period replacements. The barrel has the one-line address, and the frame has the two-line address/patent dates marking and "PS" inspector stamp. The grip and barrel are numbered to the gun, and both grip straps have matching assembly numbers. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine. The barrel retains 95% original matte blue finish. The frame retains 90% plus bright original high polish blue finish with some high edge wear. The wood is fine with a couple slight chips at the top of the grip, minor handling marks and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. A highly attractive Remington Model 1901 Rolling Block Target Pistol.
