This is one time Google is your friend

Title is a quote from Mike @Texprep in another topic.
Google would help if I knew who manufactured the rifle and what model it is.
So I’m posting photos in hopes someone can lead me in the right direction.
The stamped markings are worn off. They are right behind the hammer where your palm would go to grip the rifle.
It is a .22

the lettering on that tang should be able to be lifted, just like checking a ground set of cases, looks stamped and not engraved, changes the metals structure, but acid lifting will screw up the finish. do you have a closer pic of just the script on the tang itself.
gods, ive seen and handled those before… but its been a long time.

Thanks for helping me out.
All the scrip on the tang is just gone.
I don’t have my magnifying glass it’s at home. but I don’t think it would help.
I used my iPhone magnifying app it’s gone.

Action certainly looks like a Remington rolling block. It’s been restocked at some point. Could try taking a rubbing of the markings, having a lot of trouble making anything out in the pictures.

need something with glare or shine. like Chris said carbon/pencil rubbing only piece throwing me is the trigger guard.
forend looks to have been restocked with a pump air rifle front stock, those that period had almost a forend shaped look a long wedge, tapered thin barrel end to thick at receiver. like a sharps or lc smith.
