87. Rare Remington Keene Bolt Action Sporting Rifle

Click on images for enlarged versions.

45-70, 28'' round barrel with half magazine and a bright excellent bore. This rifle is rare in that it has a longer than standard barrel and is equipped with a shorter than standard magazine. The magazine is tipped with a neat spherical button with knurled ring around the edge. The condition of the rifle is quite nice with the barrel retaining a pleasing mix of a rich smooth brown patina and original blue with just a little old patchy light surface oxidation present. The action retains about 40% original blue with the balance blending with a smooth brown patina. The markings on top of bolt are correct and remain strong and clearly legible. The plain walnut stock appears to have had most of its varnish removed but still has a pleasing look and excellent surface, that would benefit from a light cleaning and perhaps adding a little light oil. The stock edges remain sharp and fit is excellent, it really shows no evidence of being sanded. The rifle is sighted with a blade front and original folding leaf rear sights. Special order Remington Keene rifles are very rare and this is an excellent and quite handsome example. (17597-12) {ANTIQUE} (2500/3500) Sold For 2185.00
