According to "Remington Rolling Block Rifles, Carbines & Shotguns" by Roy Marcot, page161, this rifle is 2 numbers off the Creedmoor given to George Custer in 1875 (#3333). It also states that, at the time of writing, there were only 3 known full octagon Creedmoors. As this rifle came out of an old collection in Canada, I don't know if this was included in the 3 or not.
Condition:very good bore, 95% barrel blue thinning, traces of silvering case color on receiver, excellent wood, excellent mechanically, excellent marks.
