Remington 1871 Rolling Block .50 cal Black Powder with two stage trigger/hammer assembly for safety when reloading and thousand yard elevator sights in good shape. Wood has some dings and scars, barrel & receiver is in good shape,bore & rifling in good shape.In 1869, the Navy Bureau of Ordnance tested many different weapons, and settled on the .50 caliber Remington Rolling Block for use by both the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Marines. Following the success of the Model 1870, the Governor of New York ordered 15,000 Remington rolling block rifles and bayonets for his state's militia. These model 1871 rifles were very similar to the Model 1870 rifles, but differed in some details. Field experience with the Model 1870 showed that the mechanism jammed too easily in dusty conditions. Users also did not like loading the weapon at full cock. The Model 1871 included a locking bolt in the breech mechanism. The user pulled the hammer to the full cock position, retracted the breech block spur to expose the chamber, and inserted the cartridge. When the breech block closed, the hammer automatically fell to the half cock position, and the weapon could not be fired until the hammer was once again pulled to the full cock position.
