Description:
Remington Mexican Model 1897 Rolling Block Carbine in 7x57mm Mauser. This is one of 7,000 Carbines ordered by the Mexican government during the civil war turmoil in pre WW1 Mexico. These carbines are rarely seen, especially in this good condition. Most of them remained in Mexico and were used, and abused, extensively. The carbine has the Mexican Crest and "REPUBLICA MEXICANA" on the receiver band, and 7 M.M-S.M on the top of the barrel. The original finish has turned to a nice patina with some small areas of blueing and case colors remaining. There is a bit of freckling also present. The stock has not been sanded or refinish and exhibits honest wear and handling marks. The most interesting thing about the stock is that on the left side is carved "Alex R. Wiley 9-9-14" This date of September 9, 1914 was during the occupation of Veracruz, Mexico by U.S. Naval Forces, Marines, and Army troops from April to November of 1914. We feel that this carbine was captured during the occupation and brought back as a war souvenir. Also very lightly carved on the left side is "14 December 1914". There is a script "Le" carved on the right side wrist. The hand guard is cracked behind the rear sight in front of the receiver. The bore is frosted with light pitting but has strong lands & grooves. A rare and seldom seen carbine in original, unmolested condition. MMR380210
