This percussion handgun is a Civil War specimen of the Remington-Beals Navy model produced in 1861-1862. Approximately 14,500 of these percussion revolvers were produced in .36 caliber with unmarked solid frame and unrebated six-shot cylinder. Screw-on barrel is octagonal and measures 7½” long with no barrel threads visible at the breech end of the frame, as the frame conceals all the threads.  Grips are original two-piece walnut in very good-plus condition with no government inspector cartouche.

The two-digit serial number #77 is strongly stamped into the bottom facet of the barrel and on the grip frame.

Barrel, cylinder and frame show faint hints only of original bluing. Gunmetal wears a gray finish and turning a plumb brown overall.  Barrel markings are clear and read “BEALS’ PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858 / MANUFACTURED BY REMINGTONS’ ILION, N.Y.” Bore has good rifling but is dark.  Mortised cone front sight is present.

Sidearm features a brass trigger guard, steel backstrap and the high hammer spur which is chipped and is now rather short. Original screws are not buggered.  Action works but cylinder does not lock at full-cock. Indexing is iffy. Cylinder is plain with no safety notches and shows normal slight scoring along the circumference and moderate wear on stops. All nipples are original.  [ad]

All firearms are described as accurately as possible, given the restraints of a catalog listing length. We want satisfied customers & often "under" describe the weapons.
