R2168 RARE HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT REMINGTON CREEDMOOR TARGET RIFLE
Item # R2168
To be specific, this is a Remington Rolling Block long range Creedmore target rifle. 34-1/2" oct and round barrel marked 44 S cartridge which is the 44-77, a 2 1/4" bottleneck cartridge. What is really unique about this Remington along with it's beautiful condition is that underneath the bbl it is stamped twice with L.L. Hepburn. As Remington people would know, Lewis Hepburn was superintendent at the Remington factory and was also a member of the American Creedmore International Shooting Team. Other markings on the gun are MCL stamped on both sides of the stock. A very fine condition gun with nearly all bbl blue remaining. Some light wear and very light aging to the metal. Case colored frame exhibits most case colors that are dimming somewhat. Wood is VG overall. Buttstock is strange in the fact that it is rather unconventional. A VG+ bore and action. A very special Rolling Block!

R223 REMINGTON HEPBURN HEAVY BBL RIFLE
Item # R223-26-653
Caliber 45-70. Overall gun looks great; appears to have been used out in the frontier: it's got a rawhide leather strap around the back of the buttstock to be used as a sling and a mark on the bbl where another rawhide strap had been attached. Overall metal is an aged plum brown coloration and has seen a lot of use with a fair amount of neglect but appears to be very much untouched; complete with double set triggers. No doubt this gun has seen alot of frontier use by buffalo hunters and such. Wood has been cleaned but is sound and solid with possibly an old age crack at the wrist. Very colorful, interesting, Western gun.
