    This would not be a Remington 1901 correct? Would it be a Remington 4 rolling block (rifle). I do not own it, this is the only picture I have.

    Does it have any markings? Remington made the M1867 rolling block pistol (it isn't that, I would say) for the US Govt, then made a lot of RB pistols for the civilian market up into the 1900's. Trying to guess what it is from the small picture is just that, a guess.

    The full octagon barrel, grip shape, and long foreend are not right for any Remington Rolling Block pistol I have seen pictured.

    I think it is a cut down rifle, which is illegal under the letter of the law but not likely to bring in BATFE SWAT... I hope. But then I recall the article about the nicely done pump action pistol built from an 1890 Winchester that was confiscated by the feds.
