    Default 1899 Remington Lee Rifle

    Hi All,

    I thought I would try to get more information regarding a rifle that I came across in a private collection. It is an original 1899 Remington Lee rifle that is claimed to be one of the rifles used by the Michigan National Guard based off its serial number “101xxx”.From what I read they are very rare rifles and only about 2000 were shipped to the Michigan National Guard in 1898 and 1899. I read that the correct serial numbers include 100001 - 102200. This is a rifle that would add great to my collection, but the collector doesn’t want to part with it for less than $3000. I am not sure what they are truly worth, but I know the sky is the limit when it comes to rare rifles like this. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

    The rifle does not seem to be missing any parts, is not sporterized and has the original magazine.

    I can’t help you with the specifics of such a rifle, but for a true evaluation you are really going to need some pictures

    Should be in .30-40 caliber. I have a sporter and it is a great shooter.
    $3000 is high, IMO.
