Remington Rolling Block Question

I am looking at what I believe is a model 1910 (by rear sight) rolling block rifle in 7 m/m. My questions are: how long did they make this model? Were they serial numbered? and is there any collector value (this is about 10% mostly due to the stock condition) or would this be a candidate for a conversion.
Thanks!

    Anyone know how rare a Remington Rolling Block in 44 Rimfire Long with a 34 inch barrel would be. Where could I find out?

    I have a antique Remington Rolling Block in 7mm Mauser that is in mint condition. My question is, when I was a kid I shot this gun all the time using smokeless ammo that was stamped 7mm Mauser on the case. It has been 30 years since then and I wanted to start shooting it again. Where can I find ammo for it, or should I just reload ammo for it using black powder?

    You might get something at:

    I think the scarce part is the 34 inch barrel.

    I don't think you will have much luck finding fresh .44 rimfire long ammo.

    A collector might be interested in it for the extra long barrel, IF it is in good enough condition.

    If you could post some quality photos, particularly of the breech/hammer area it would be beneficial. I believe some of the early RB's made for Mexico, were dual purpose. They could fire both rim and centerfire cartridges. This could explain the longer barrel.
