Not many that short, except Ballard/Marlin, which measures 1-1/8″ between centers of screw holes.  But many other oddball makes.

They might have similar spacing, but this kind of base was obsolete by the time they were in production.  Probably for some make of single shot.

I saw something similar for Bullard (not ballard) rifles in Nick Stroebles  OLD GUNSIGHTS book. Clarence, I think I saw a thicker than usual tang base on your Remington rolling block. I think these would be used on old historic guns.

Bases very similar on all single shots of this period, main diff was hole spacing.  Win & Marlin bases not merely similar, but exactly alike except for hole spacing, so must have been made by same company, which ever it was.
