This is for one of the most one of a kind rifles, with great history, and use on it. This is a remmington model 1884 breech load rifle. shoots a 32-40 round. The rifle and autographs are completely authentic and real. read for more info.
Here's the story on how it was aquired!
--Correction-- (was trying to go off what i "remembered")
My Pap, Marlin Rowe, Got this From a Celebrity auction/gun show type deal, we are unsure. He went to the many studio auctions "MGM, 21st century etc" so those are a big possibility. (he lived in santa monica (near beverly hills)) so its hard to say if it was a studio's auction of celebrity items or a gun show of a sort. i'd guess a studio auction. He used to do ALOT of furniture repair/building for Jerry's Upholstering in beverly hills in his days "1960's-1990's" He has Gotten SO MANY. And i mean many, autographs
from singers he'd work for and actors/actresses. While on the job for Mr.Wayne He told him about the rifle, and later shipped to him and talked to Pat stacy, and probably for this exact purpose, asked to authenticate it from being used in the Movie the alamo "USED BY BACKUP SOLDIERS, ENEMIES ETC". So it was autographed. WE HAVE THE ORIGINAL LETTER FROM 1975 SIGNED BY PAT STACY "picture is located at bottom of pic list". My pap was a HUGE historical collector from early coins/knifes/rifles/stamps/posters/cars. he had everything. When he received money he was always looking for the next purchase. My family and me are lucky to have what remained of his collection, Much of which my family and i am keeping "i am the new history nut". But this gun is for one very costly and basiclly sitting. and there are many more people out there who would appreicate and display such a fine fine piece of american movie history. Something like this will always be sought after.
----- The Rifle has: "Marlin, Its from "the alamo", john wayne, 1975"
Autographed on it, from John Wayne. AND the other side has an autograph as well.
---- The Rifle also has "Batjac" stamped into it, Which huge john wayne fans all know, was the company John Wayne was with when making the alamo.
--- AN AUTHENTIC 1975 letter Pat Stacy typed and signed to My Pap, you can read in the picture, her signiture is there. she is pretty much telling my pap, John Wayne would authenticate the gun by autographing it for him, etc.
-- This is a firing rifle!
- NEEDS A TRUE COLLECTORS CARE!!
Please contact for negotiation and questions!! because this rifle is pretty much ONE OF A KIND! The price is undetermined!
This is the missing block to a very costly and big collection. and only !one! out of 310million people are getting it. Think hard, and decide.
PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE! ! 40,000 or 1,000<-unlikely" i do not care, it is as of now a number. if your interested just tell me hell even throw a price what you'd pay even if you cant afford it... Need feedback on any comments or questions
To answer any questions and ones already asked. Hollywood, movies. Do Not! and will not! ever be accurate with some items. The reason these rifles were used in the movie was the simple fact, it is easier to shoot blanks from a cartridge, then flintlock, PLUS the rolling block rifle looked like a flintlock. The back up soldiers/enemies used these because noone truly concentrated on them anyway, and as i said, easier to reload a blank. Mr.Wayne is the only one with a camera concentrated on him most the movie anyway. +, 99% of movie watchers dont care if the technology meets time period etc. <- look it up. they were used in the movie. if my logic is wrong. then i have no idea why hollywood did it.
and to have John Wayne sign it as "used in "the alamo (movie..)" and him be wrong. would be a slap to the face.
