Remington Cadet Rifle With Bayonet
- Licensing Category: Antique
Antique cadet rifle built by the famous New York firm, Hartley and Graham. This was one of the carbines assembled for sale to numerous military school's and cadet corps circa 1900. This piece shows the correct 28" barrel and the action of a Model 1867 U.S. Navy rolling block pistol with the naval inspector's mark P/FCW caliber 50 Remington CF. This piece is mounted with a correct U.S. bayonet with the U.S. marking, 14" blade and 3" socket marked #51. The bayonet rides in a surplus scabbard modified for the bayonet and with a brown 27 7/8 leather from marked 42. The carbine shows a bright very good bore, a correct Remingham carbine sight and a P proof on the top of the barrel. The receiver shows the bright excellent blue and action of the 1867 pistol. The wood is sound and shows a #6 rack number on the butt tang. Note: the scabbard is a surplused British military scabbard. Hartley and Graham sold numerous military surplus items. This is an excellent example of a military academy or cadet corp carbine from the turn of the century. Not a common piece on the Canadian market.
