Rifles listed below are duplicates in my collection. In the process of acquiring originals for the purpose of reverse engineering the parts for reproduction, I have necessarily acquired more than one example of some contracts. Please contact me regarding additional photographs and description details. In those cases where I have more than one duplicate, the photo used will remain on the website while that contract model is in stock. In that case "file photo" will be noted. If you have something you desire for your collection that you do not see listed let me know as I may be able to refer you to a source for that item. In those instances where an FFL or C&R is required for transfer it will be so noted in the description. Because the firearm listed may be sold pending funds please contact me before ordering to insure it is still available.
Early Round Top Sporting Model. Chambered .46 rim fire. Marcot indicates the early round tops were manufactured from 1868 to 1872. Most of them were manufactured in a rim fire cartridge. Many of those surviving have been altered in one way or another including center fire conversions. The few remaining unmolested round top sporting rifles are rare. There are a number of variations of these round tops. This one has the type #4 butt plate, a round steel forend tip and the sculptured shadow line trigger guard bow (rather unusual in its own right). For documentation of these and other features see chapter 3 in Marcot's book on the Rolling Block Sporting Rifles. $1850 SOLD
#7 Sporting and Target Rifle. This is the gem of rolling block collectables. Less than 350 made. This rifle chambered .22 rim fire. 26 inch half octagon half round barrel.
