Item Code: 169-501

This Remington is serial numbered 106918, dating it around October 1864. It remains in NRA excellent condition, with all original parts, 80 percent or better original finish, sharp lettering and numbering, unmarred wood and fine bore. The only problem with it is that you will want to upgrade every other Civil War pistol you own.

The barrel retains well over 90 percent of its blue with just some steel showing along the edges of the barrel flats, the usual place of wear. The barrel address is crisp: “PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858 / E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, NEW YORK, U.S.A. / NEW MODEL.” The top and sides of the frame are equally strong, with just a little abrasion to the blue near the capping cutout. The back strap and but strap have full coverage. There is some steel showing through on the underside forward of the triggerguard and the underside of the frame where one’s hand would touch it or it might get some abrasion from a holster. The cylinder shows more loss of blue, mainly on one side, on which the gun clearly lay for a long time and was the point of contact with any surface. The wood grips are about excellent as well. They have excellent finish. We see one or two light pressure dents neat the frame, which they fit tightly, and they have a crisp “OWA” inspector’s cartouche on the left. The muzzle face is crisp and the bore excellent. The nipples on the cylinder are not battered. The gun was probably never fired. This is a top shelf piece.

Remington became the dominant supplier of pistols to the army in 1864. His guns were robust and respected. Public relations dictated that Colt blame his falling behind Remington on a factory fire, but he had always played fast, loose, and aggressively with his pricing and Ordnance was happy to give their money to someone else for a while. This is a really nice example of the principal cavalry issue side arm in the last year of the war when some of the great raids and engagements took place.  [sr]
