    Cool looking rifle!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    After I get it thoroughly checked out by a gunsmith I'll shoot a few clips. Here are photos of a box of 20 rounds of Remington UMC 6mm Navy ammo; head stamps; repro clip and wire and attached bayonet.

    Per the Winchester Repeating Fire Arms letter the serial number was applied to the on July 22, 1898; Caliber: N; received in warehouse on August 12, 1898 and shipped from warehouse on August 20, 1898; Order number 2689. It just missed the Spanish-American War but may have served during the Relief of the Foreign Legations in Peking during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900 or during the Philippine Insurrection 1899-1902. I'll have to see if I can track down the USN or USMC ship/unit which eventually received this rifle.
