    One of the rarest longarms ever issued by the U.S. government.

    Very Rare Remington-Keene Bolt Action .45-70 Frontier Model Magazine Rifle as Manufactured for the U.S. Department of the Interior for Issuance to Indian Police, #136. Estimated total production of from 620 to 800 guns with only a handful of known specimens. As with most of the surviving examples, the gun shows heavy wear and use. Remington markings on the top of the bolt, U.S.I.D. 136 on the left side of the frame, P/WWK/and arrow on the top of the receiver, HN inspector's mark on the receiver and barrel. Metal generally smooth and dark gray , retaining about 10% of the original blue on the barrel at the breech. A few scattered small dents on the barrel at the band, minor, and a number of scattered dents on the magazine tube. Mechanically perfect, perfect bore, excellent marks. Wood shows substantial wear, with a hairline crack extending the length of the underside of the forestock, and an approximately 1" x 1.5" area of damage at the base of the forestock at the floor plate. Obviously happened long ago, and now worn smooth. The gun is correct and original in every respect. A totally honest example.
