|Remington No. 4 Rolling Block .22 Solid Frame|
Remington first introduced the single shot No. 4 rolling block rifle back in 1890. Calling it the “Boys Rifle” it was a smaller, lightweight (4lb 4 oz) version larger Remington rolling blocks used by the army and buffalo hunters. An appealing thought to little boys at the time.
Undoubtedly there were many letters to Santa with the No. 4 on the top of the list, and dog-eared pages in Sears Catalogs. In fact the No. 4 boys rifle was wildly successful, with over 157,000 made in a twelve year period.
This rifle is dedicated to all the boys out there, young and old.
See Roy M. Marcot’s The History of Remington Firearms for an excellent historical account of this classic American company.
