Remington began production on the No. 5 in 1896, selling it based on its chambering for smokeless powder. In the Remington rolling block action, the hammer serves to lock the breech closed at the moment of firing, and the block prevents the hammer from falling with the breech open. While the No. 5 was available in a variety of smokeless cartridges, the majority of them are chambered in 7mm Mauser. This rifle features a ramped blade front sight with an adjustable v-notch rear sight. Its wood and metal are in good condition and its bore is in fair condition.
