I am looking at a rolling block for sale. I know nothing about value or exactly what this one is. It says Remington Arms. Last patten date 1876. Supposedly used in the Black Hills conflict by the sellers great great grandfather. He was a Calvary soldier. Not sure why anyone would scratch 1864 on the stock. Any info on value and exaclty what I am looking at would be greatly appreciated. He says its a 30 cal 08???

The odds of it being at little big horn are slim. It might be 7mm caliber. I don't know alot about these though. What is he asking for it? I see these go for 4-500 most of the time if in good shape.

    unless it is heavily documented by reliable sources....ALWAYS buy the gun, NEVER the story.

    gun shows are filled with guns the owner absolutely swears are the ones that "killed hitler" or "was at D-day" or "killed lincoln"

    The Remington Rolling Block was one of the mass produced weapons in the history of the world. So many countries had them, more than anything. It's ridiculous. So there are hundreds of variations. The left side of the action typically shows some markings, along with the rear sight you provided, that would have allowed me to determine who used it.
