World War I REMINGTON ARMS Rolling Block No. 5 M1902 7mm Mauser RIFLE C&R
Used by CANADA and GREAT BRITAIN During WORLD WAR I
Here we present a C&R Remington Rolling Block No. 5 Model 1902 Military Rifle, made circa 1902 to 1910 in Ilion, New York. The Remington Rolling Block had a sturdy, simple action that was relatively inexpensive, just what many governments wanted in the latter half of the 19th Century. They were popular with civilians as well. These rifles were basically obsolete when they were built, when everyone at the time was buying Mauser rifles. However, they were sold and widely used in the Mexican Revolution and also by Canada and Great Britain during World War I.
The action on the Rolling Block was extremely strong and could easily withstand the increased pressure of the new smokeless powders coming into use by the late 1880s. The Remington Rolling Block had a sturdy, simple action that was relatively inexpensive, just what many governments wanted in the latter half of the 19th Century. They were popular with civilians as well. Along with the Sharps rifle it was one of two rifles probably used more than any other by the buffalo hunters who hunted the American bison herds in the 1870s and 1880s. Civilian Remington rolling block rifles, and later surplus military rifles, became very popular among hunters in Scandinavia, particularly for moose hunting, with ammunition for the rifles being commonly available on the civilian market into the 1920s-1930s.
