Navy Arms Rolling Block Carbine .22 Caliber
Made in Italy, most likely by Uberti. My impression (which could be wrong) is that it is a replica of the Remington No 2. The little carbine is far prettier than my iPod Touch camera and my lack of talent can capture in photos. It is unfired as far as I know. I have had it maybe fifteen or twenty years. The previous owner was a friend of my Mom, a superannuated gentleman going into an assisted living facility. He needed the money and I paid too much for the piece out of sympathy. The only time it sees daylight is when I reorganize the safe.
