Description:

Only around a few hundred of the original Long Range "Creedmoor" Rifles were manufactured by Remington c. 1873-1890. These were among the finest target rifles of the 19th century and certainly among the finest 19th century arms manufactured by the Remington factory. This rifle has a replacement mismatched barrel ("4521"). The barrel is also marked "44 S" on the bottom (.44-77 Sharps). The barrel is marked with the E. Remington & Sons address and has an adjustable windgauge globe front sight with a spirit level (post insert absent). The frame has the serial number on the lower tang, the patent marking on the left, and a long range Vernier peep sight on the upper tang. Additional holes for mounting the rear sight ahead of the heel for shooting from the back position. The forearm is smooth and has a steel end cap, and the pistol grip stock has a checkered wrist, horn inlay, some nice figure, and a smooth steel shotgun buttplate.

Rating Definition:

Fine as rebarreled (see above) with 70% plus of the blue finish, 80% plus of the bright niter blue, 50% muted original case colors, smooth gray and brown patina on the balance, tool marks on the barrel, some faint oxidation, and generally minor overall wear. The wood is fine and has crisp checkering, some minor dings and scratches, and a small spot of insect damage on the horn inlay. Mechanically excellent.
