Designed by Remington’s superintendent of its mechanical department, the single-shot Remington-Hepburn design has a great “target gun” look to it. No surprise, as Lewis L. Hepburn was also a member of the Creedmoor International Shooting Team.

From its introduction in 1880, the No. 3 Remington-Hepburn rifle was offered in a variety of sporting and target calibers, from .22 to .50. Our example, mounted with a Stevens telescopic sight, is chambered in .32-40. While perhaps 12,000 rifles were made, the unique falling block that opened with its side lever earned an excellent reputation with American hunters and target shooters.

It's both cool and kind of ugly at the same time.

Any I've seen in person have been well above my pay grade, and aren't terribly left-friendly anyway.
