    I finally brought home the Rolling Block today.
    Navy Arms, Pedersoli, 45/70, 22" barrel.

    How do you keep the extractor in place while pulling the fist lever back? In order to load a shell, the extractor must stay in place, however, it comes back with the lever & goes forward with the lever.
    How is a shell loaded with the extractor in the way??
    I am using spent brass just to check it out, not live ammo.

    Thanks for any help. will post pics shortly

    Either a whole lot or nothing at all, considering that Remington made the Rolling Block starting in 1867.

    OK, an 1865 Split Breech is kinda sorta a rolling block. Actually made for Remington by Savage, according to Flayderman.
    Which still leaves Winchester out in the cold.

    It would be worth a lot since there was no such thing. [;)]

    Actually a early version of the Rolling Block, called the "Split Breech Remington". Was made in 1865, the last year of the Civil War.

    Most were sold back to Remington in 1870, by the U.S. Government. Remington promptly sold them to the French, for use in the Franco-Prussian War. Because the French lost the war. Split Breech carbines, are very uncommon and valuable collectors items. Perhaps this is what the OP, is inquiring about?
