Nice wood.  Does it have a serial # or is the CAT**** # the serial #?  I had a .218 Bee years ago and it was a zinger on crows.

On the left side of the action it says CAT.4367 along with proof marks and on the other side of the action 11497.
On the barrel it says

C&B8 -of DOUGLAS PREM,16T

The  barrel is a 1 in 16 twist.
All been very well done and a nice piece of wood.
Thanks for your interest.

Here is a unique Roller I bought last week.
Built by Verl Sigman in the Gemmer style.
Caliber 32-40. Will see how it shoots next week.

Ballards may be weaker,

Lots of fine looking Rolling Blocks here . I have three myself, a couple of old Military ones , .43 Spanish (My first B.P. S.S. ), 50/70 and last week I just got a nice 60's vintage? Numerich, Navy Arms , Pedersoli yes all three names are on the gun,45/70 with a 28"Heavy Octagonal Barrel and a 32" Brass Scope that I have to dial in.  It has the nicest trigger for a R.B. It was a local buy that I couldn't pass up. Should be fun.

Hard to beat Powdermans 45-70.  Original sporters in that caliber are rare as hens teeth.

Might as well add my hunting rifle - if I ever get a chance to go buffalo hunting! Lonestar reworked 7mm carbine in 50-70. He did some fine work. I finished the stock in red root oil.

That red root oil really brings out the grain.  Looks like an original factory wood finish.  Nice looking roller.

Where do you get red root oil - I Googled it but what came up doesn't look like what you might have used. I really like the reddish tinge in the old guns. I have an original RB Creedmoor that has that old reddish coloration.

I used a CCL Traditional English Gunstock Oil Finishing Kit. Can't remember where I got the first one but I had a friend in England who lived near the source pick me up a second one and bring it to me when he came over. It looks like now it can't be mailed by Royal Mail so the only source here is The Double Gun Journal (promoted by Ross Seyfried). There is always a 2 page ad. I did get some oil and filler from an English gunsmith once who listed on eBay but he is probably hobbled by Royal Mail now also. I think you can whip up your own if you are willing to wait a couple of months while the alkanet root soaks in the oil.

There was an informative discussion on this website in regards to the red root oil and other gunstock finishes.
