Possible Joseph Rider Rolling Block Patent Model

7.25" x 3.25".  Wood and brass. Model of a breech-loading firearm using a rolling-block type action, similar to types patented by Joseph Rider, half of whose designs were purchased by E. Remington and Sons in 1864.  Unlike other rolling block designs used by Remington, the block of this particular design requires downward pressure before rearward travel is allowed. It also features what may be a rear sight aperture on the extended portion of the breech block.


Good overall. A portion of the hammer has been broken off. Mechanically functional.

Estimate: $700 - $1,000
