Alpo nice Rolling block is it yours?Remington Rolling Block.
You cock the hammer, then catch hold of that tab and pull backwards and the breech block, which you can see is curved, rolls down out of the way. Then you load the cartridge, roll the block up back into place, and fire. When the hammer is in the down (fired) position there's a piece that prevents any rearward motion of the breeze block. This is a very strong action.
nice, very nice. i may have an addiction going for these. Tucker1 and his build make me want to do the same, 38-55 is at the front of the wish list right now.Remington Rolling Block.
No, that's just a good close-up picture I found to show what a block looks like.
These three are mine. A Pedersoli 45/70, a Mexican #5 in 7x57mm, and a #4 in 22 long rifle.
