REMINGTON Number 6 FALLING BLOCK Single Shot .22 Cal. RF TAKEDOWN Rifle C&R
EARLY 20th Century .22 Cal. SMOOTHBORE “BOYS” Rifle
Here we present a C&R Remington Number 6 Smoothbore Single Shot Falling Block Takedown Rifle, made circa 1902-1933 in Ilion, New York. During its thirty-one year production run, there were just over 250,000 of these falling block takedown rifles manufactured, many less of the smoothbore examples, making this gun fairly hard to come by.
This lightweight small rifle was designed expressly to be used by young boys. It was chambered for .22 rimfire cartridge, as well as .32 Short or Long. This model was also produced with a smoothbore barrel, as is this one, to be used with shot cartridges. It has a take-down action with the barrel being held on by a knurled knob underneath the frame.
This would have been the rifle that a boy learned on, plinked and hunted with. Its falling block loading system was strong, simple and reliable. It also taught the shooter how to make the shot count as it was not a repeater.
The overall condition is very good. Original patina preserved. Strong action. The bore is bright and remains smooth. Solid stock. Legible markings.
