Is this a rare rifle? Is it more valuable than other Remington rifles? It is a very nice looking rifle and he has invited me to the range and fires nicely.
Thanks

Answers are as follows:

(1) About 20,000 rifles were loaned to the Kiwis, returned after the war, and sold as surplus.

(2) In most cases, yes.
