John Boy,
That a beautiful original RB but, I think that it's a #2. How is the bore in it? If good, I bet it will be awesome shooter.

The rifle in the middle of this picture is a 1 1/2. You can see the difference at the rear of the frame. The 1 1/2's are approx. 1.13 wide and use the standard #1 breech block that is approx. .720 wide.

I agree, the ops' gun doesn't look at all like my #11/2, the action is what I'm talking about.

a roller rifle  with the angle on the rear of the frame is a #2  as is the frame for yjr pistol and the #7 riflr built on the pistol frame

The  1, i 1/2s 4s, & 5s are all square cut at the butt rnd of the frame

the OP rifle is clearly a #2.


anyone know what a #3 looks like? Smiley

Gents, my expertise for RB Sporting rifles is limited because I only have the military ones.  My source to say it's a 1 1/2 is the Blue Book Gun Values because of no mention of a 32-20 CF for the #2's.

*  Here's what I overlooked ... "rear of the frame is curved".  Yep, mine is too -  it's a No 2!

Details: 
*  The first 5" of the bore is rough.  Presume from mercuric primers.  The rest of the bore is very good
*  Original sights
*  Barrel length = 26 1/4"
*  Receiver width = 1"
*  Straight extractor
*  OAL = 40"
*  Weight = 6 lbs 2 1/8 oz
*  Trigger pull = 4lbs 10oz

Loaded 50 rounds and shot 4"-7" groups at 50 yds.  Sadly, I picked the day there were tornado winds in NJ and my wind gauge said 48 mph @ 2 o'clock shooting 100gr bullets with 4198 powder which I think stinks.  Probably 1/2gr of unburned sticks in the bore

Plus I was having a terrible time seeing the front blade sight

The rifle is a #2, not a 1 1/2.

This rifle looks like a good one to have the barrel lined. Had two rifles lined now with the TJ liners and both shoot very well.
   Struggling to shoot a fine old rifle with a bad bore takes some of the fun out of it for me so liners have been my way to go. Not sorry at all that I did. Got one in 22 LR for my Stevens 44 and one in 32-40 in my Browning-Winchester low wall.
Check with John Taylor or Craig Rittenhouse. They both do very good work with liners.
