Title: Remington No. 2 Rolling Block
Post by: scooby on April 27, 2019, 07:32:16 PM
Picked this one up at a gun show in March. It is a sweet rifle with gracefull archetecture. She is all original and in good shape with a decent bore. I tore it down and gave it a good cleaning. A number 2 is very easy to tear down. They are also very well made. More refined than a No, 4. They are also a tiny bit larger and have a longer and heavier barrel. This one is chambered in .32 rim fire.

I put some rounds through her today for the second time now. Shot gongs everywhere from 25 to 60 yards. A fine antique shooter she is, and fortunately, it did not get beat and abused over time.

She's a beaut Scooby. I've always wanted a Rolling Block.

There's one for sale in the SASS classifieds right now. It's a Swedish gun and in a Swedish metric caliber. It's pretty cheap though. I almost pulled the trigger on it.

Hi scooby, very nice rifle. Even if it's a Remington on the Colt board.  ;)
Great photos.

Where do you get .32 rim fire ammo?

Regards,
Richard

Hi Scooby, nice gun.

If you save your spent brass .32 rim fire, you can reload them now.

Thanks men. 32 rimfire can still be found. I have a bunch of it. I might mess around with reloading the 32, if I ever decide to find the time. I now have three single shots in 32 rimfire and it could be that I eventualy just might get to shooting them more often.
