The gun in question was clearly stamped "25-20 Remington".

Redding in Gettysburg. You can probably still access the March 6 auction. It sold on that date. Item #216.

From the auction photos, looks like a dark stained maple stock, post war judging by the white line spacer on the grip.

Interesting rifle, what did it sell for?

Here you go. I wanted to go up to that auction but domestic stuff tied me down.

Nice pictures. The checkering is a little reminiscent of my own Krag. I wish we could see a few photos of the entire rifle. Definitely looks like a woodchuck rifle. It sure would be interesting to see a chamber casting too.

Single shot Krags were very popular with wildcatters/experimenters/custom gunners in the 30's (and this one looks to me to be from that era) because they were cheap as dirt, not because they were the very best things available.

Another example of a single shot Krag. .22 Maximum Lovell, built by Hervey Lovell himself. I got it from Whitey here on this forum right before he died.

It sold for something between $800 and $900. You never know the interests of the attendees at auctions unless you are personally acquainted with them. This was not a "white spacer" kind of rifle. It was just a neat old rifle waiting to be cleaned up and shot.

I missed it. Whose table was it displayed on? I was there all three days.
