    What is it because all I see on it is a printed U running down the barrel. It looks pretty old, any ideas? IMG_6898.JPG IMG_6899.JPG IMG_6903.JPG IMG_6904.JPG IMG_6906.JPG

    Well--it looks like a military Remington rolling block rifle. If it IS a Remington,
    it should have some markings on the barrel. They were made under license in
    several countries, and just plain copied in a few more.
    The genuine Remingtons were used by the military of around 30 countries, in
    upward of 20 different calibers---you might want to have a gunsmith check
    it over and maybe do a chamber cast to be sure what cartridge it's chambered for.
