The Remington rolling block rifle had a long life. In 1914 production was resumed of the 1902 pattern to supply the French government with arms for its service and support troops. The French government designated rifle as the Remington Rifle Model 1914, buying just over 100,000 of them chambered for the 8mm Lebel cartridge and fitted with sword bayonets, freeing up more modern weapons for front line combat troops. The bayonet follows the general pattern of sword bayonet supplied by Remington on its foreign contracts, though the exact dimensions were specified in the French contracts. This one has a steel pommel with release button that is functional, wood grips that are tightly fitted to the metal and rate good, though with four narrow scratches on one side and two deeper ones on the other. The muzzle ring and lower hooked guard are in place and good. The 16-inch blade has no nicks and a good point. The metal matches overall in a muted silver gray color with some darker gray tones. “The blade bears the Remington company marking in one fuller.”  [SR]
