The Remington Model 14-1/2 was first produced a year after the nearly identical model 14, adding additional calibers and increasing magazine capacity. The Model 14-1/2 design incorporates several innovative concepts including a spiral magazine tube that prevents bullet tips from contacting the primer of the cartridge in front of them. Loading is through an opening in the magazine itself, located between the forend and the receiver and the bolt is unlocked via a button pressed through the ejection port. Like the Model 14 and the later Model 141, the Model 14-1/2 is a takedown rifle that features a single knurled screw on the left side of the receiver that, when withdrawn, allows the trigger group and buttstock to be removed from the bottom of the gun. This rifle has a ramped front sight, an adjustable rear sight, and a cross-bolt safety. Its wood is in fair condition and its metal and bore are in good condition.
