REMINGTON KEENE MODEL 1880 U.S. NAVY RIFLE RARE RARE RARE
Item ID #1968
Remington-Keene Model 1880 U.S. Navy Rifle 45/70. This is a rare piece. Only 250 were made. It is believed they were issued to the marine corps. Bore in the 29" barrel has good lands and grooves along with some pitting. The rifling is strong enough to spin your cleaning rod with the patch. It will rate a six on a one to ten scale. Action works perfectly and is tight. Wood to metal fit is excellent. Wood is in nice condition. Metal is correctly marked including the inspector initials. All markings are complete and original. For those of you who enjoy owning rare items, here you go. I have taken a lot of pictures which clearly and fairly show the condition of this Remington Keen Model 1880.
