Remington 38-55 rolling block

(1/2) > >>

Logangrimnar:
Hello,
I purchased a remington rolling block from a lgs that is selling an estate. It is marked remington number 1 military conversion on the tag. The gunsmith says its 38-55 but the barrel has no markings at all. The only stamping on the entire rifle is covered by the rear sight. The barrel is round, heavy, and black. It has unertl style basses installed. The wood certainly looks upgraded. Has anyone seen anything like this? Did numrich sell round 38-55 replacement barrels? Any information at all would help. I will obviously validate caliber before shooting. The hole certainly is smaller than 45 and bigger than 22.

I have seen rifles like yours in the past, they are all gunsmith or hobbyist conversions.  Converting those old RB's to 38-55 was quite popular in the 60's-90's.  I remember one that looked a lot like yours that was built by a fellow named Harris in Terrell, Texas.
