CIVIL WAR REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY REVOLVER

$1,250.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: G3666

This percussion sidearm is a Civil War era Remington New Model Army revolver in good overall condition. These revolvers were in production from 1863 to 1875 and the New Model Army became the strongest competitor against the Colt Model 1860 revolver during that time. The Union government acquired a total of some 122,000 such New Model revolvers for military use.

This sidearm is an original .44 caliber weapon with a 6-shot round cylinder matched to an 8” long octagonal barrel. Metal surfaces are gray throughout. Screw-on barrel shows threads visible at the breech end of the frame. Front sight is the brass cone-type mortised to the muzzle. Screws are slightly buggered. Grips are original two-piece walnut in good condition with a faint government cartouche visible. Left side has small chip out of back toe.

The five-digit serial number #17012 has been stamped into the bottom facet of the barrel above the loading lever and it matches the frame but not the cylinder. Cylinder is numbered #16757. However, the cylinder surface matches the rest of the weapon.

Gunmetal wears a dull even patina. Sidearm features a brass trigger guard, steel backstrap and the low hammer spur. This handgun equipped with six safety notches on the cylinder shoulders between the nipples. Cylinder is plain and shows wear and cleaning. Original nipples intact. Action is good. Rifling in the bore is very sharp and clean.

Barrel marking very light and reads “PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858 / E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, NEW YORK, U.S. A.”  [ad]
