Cool looking rifle!..
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
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.
An interesting and not very often seen piece! Thanks for posting
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.
