Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1037-463

The Rolling Block Rifle was first developed by Leonard Geiger and received a patent from the U.S Ordnance Department in 1864.  Remington Arms Company was one of the first companies to receive orders to manufacture the Rolling Block Rifle. The Union army called for 20,000 to be manufactured at carbine length in addition to thousands of .44 caliber carbines and split-breech carbines.  The order would not be completed and delivered until 1865, the latest 1866. This particular rifle was accompanied by a socket bayonet.

The bayonet pictured here encompasses the standard markings of a Remington manufacture arm. Remington developed blades for socket bayonets in two forms triangular and cruciform, this particular blade is triangular and measures approximately 18” long (standard for the Remington Company in addition to some measuring approximately 21”). The mortise is ‘zig-zag’ pattern and is affixed in the socket which measures 67mm. The bayonet in its entirety is a dark brown patina.  This is a good example of a Remington design used in 1864 and beyond.    [MK]
