Remington #2 Rolling Blocks

Upper one is a Deluxe rifle with 24" barrel, chambered in 32 Long CF. A straight-grip Deluxe rifle is a bit unusual.

Lower one is a Special Order rifle ( special order # stamped on lower flat under forearm) with 26" barrel, chambered in 25-21 Stevens. Lyman #7 front sight, correct Lyman tang sight, and no dovetail for a rear sight. How many Remington RB rifles do you see with a cheek-piece? Notice the detail on the front of the comb.

Ballards may be weaker,

Only thing wrong with those two are they're not in my safe!
Absolutely gorgeous pair of rare #2's!

Very nice!  Iíll be restoring one with a cracked frame and it may end up looking like one of yours.  Thanks for showing us.

Jerry,
Very nice looking pair!  I have a couple I've picked up that aren't nearly as nice, in fact, one the owner felt it was beyond and almost headed for the scrap bin when I rescued it - not happening on my watch... The PG looks like someone was making a stock for a Hepburn then saw a #2 and fit it to it anyway...?  I like it, may be the configuration I follow for one of mine - thanks for sharing.
The little lip is interesting.
Greg

nice Jerry.
The to frames are so different, almost like the top one is like a highwall and the lower one like a low wall. I didn't know there were different ones.

Tony,

They're both the same frames. It's just that the upper rifle is rolled a little bit away, and the lower one is rolled a little bit towards me in the photos. Never claimed to be a photographer!† Grin

Wow - those are gorgeous!   I love #2s, I've got four of them, but none so nice as those. Thanks for sharing - I apologize for the drool Wink

Great to see such a nice pair of No.2s and in such nice condition. I bet that .25/21 would be a real honey to shoot.

Any PG #2 is a rarity and quite desirable in a collection.
I am also noting there seem to be more rim fire to center fire conversions than factory original center fire rifles to be found.
