Availability: In Stock
Price: $1,499.00
This antique Remington New Model Army Revolver has the milittary cartouche mark on the grip, and inspector's letter marks on the appropriate parts. Serial number 34170 is marked under the barrel beneath the loading lever, and on the frame under the walnut grip. The serial number would put the manufacture circa 1863, and it probably saw service during the American Civil War. All iron parts have aged to a gray brown, with bluing visible in less handled areas.

Our top view shows the marking on the top of the barrel is the three line address PATENTED SEPT 14, 1858 ~ E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, NEW YORK U.S.A. ~ NEW-MODEL. The bore is mostly bright, with scattered light pitting running its entire length. The left side of the barrel is stamped with a small A, and the right is stamped with a small C where it is threaded into the frame. This 8" octagon barrel has a small post front sight, fitted to a tiny dovetail. Later production used a blade with round base, screwed to the barrel. The slot in the hammer serves as the rear sight, when cocked.

The cylinder rotates smoothly, and retains the original nipples. We did not try to remove the nipples. We note the hand is weak and the cylinder is out of time when the revolver is cocked. A small C is stamped near the front of the cylinder, and another towards the back, both are in line with each other. A small C is also stamped on both sides of the frame where the threaded barrel exits toward the cylinder. We note the left side of the frame has also been stamped 44 , these markings are not factory original, or common military inspector stamps. The left side of the frame is stamped with an A behind the cap shield. The left side of the loading lever is stamped with a small C. The bottom flat of the barrel is stamped with a U just ahead of the loading lever catch.

Our bottom view shows the brass triggerguard, which was likely polished bright at some point. The front of the triggerguard is stamped with a letter A. The barrel and frame have multiple dings and marks. The bottom of the grip frame, along with the bottom of the wooden grips, have many small dents. It looks like this revolver was literally used to pound nails. The bottom of the left grip is also marked with a large W and another initial that we cannot determine. The left grip also has a large chip near the back and a 1" crack. On close examination, the military inspector's mark is visible in the left grip. The right grip is marked with a large N near where it meets the frame.

This antique Remington New Model Army revolver has pitted, but crisp deep rifling grooves. The cylinder rotates smoothly, but is not timed correctly due to a weak hand and spring. This revolver carries all of the military markings. It has a wonderful patina and is sure to be a great display piece for your Civil War or gun collection! Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund.
