(E.N. = Ejercito National = National Army, To distinguish from National Police)and under forearm stock on bbl on left side by receiver is the Remington "B" proofmark - Most M1879s appear to be in excellent condition. It has been suggested that Remington had a significant overrun of the rifles as Argentina's extensive trials for a replacement in the 1880's, adopted the Mauser in 1891. It forced Remington to assemble and sell the overrun directly to the US civilian market. This may be one of those civilian sold rifles, for its exceptional condition, furnished with the sliding extractor(as opposed to a later adopted rotary extractor variant); Equipped with ram rod & sling swivels A beautiful specimen. - - NRA: Excellent - SN: NSN - Est: 450 - 750 - Antq - INV 8407
