A Brief History of Remington  Rifles and the Model 4

Remington  was established just after the War of 1812 by Eliphalet Remington II.  The first model produced under his name was a flintlock rifle.  There had been many earlier flintlock rifles produced, but Remington far exceeded the shooting ability of many.  The company then followed with  the breech loading and rolling block carbines and rifles.  In 1827 Remington moved their firearms business so that it could be closer to the Erie Canal, in Illion, NY.  This original location is still part of the present day Remington Plant. 

In 1865 the partnership of E. Remington & Sons was incorporated as a stock company.  Over the years, the partnership and the succeeding corporation developed the first hammerless solid breech repeating shotgun, the first hammerless autoloading shotgun, the first successful high-power slide action repeating rifle, and the first lock breach autoloading rifle.  In 1865-66, Remington produced the state-of-the-art Rolling Block Rifle for the US and then sold these guns to armies throughout the world.

Remington  Repeating Arms Company established itself as one of the world's leading firearms manufacturers of the world, and many of the early rifles and pistols produced by Remington  are highly prized by collectors today.
