CIVIL WAR Antique REMINGTON ARMY Revolver
Made Circa 1864
Here we present an antique Remington New Model Army Revolver, issued to a Union soldier circa 1864, during the American Civil War. The Remington New Model Army represents the second-most number of issued handguns found on Civil War battlefields, second only to the Colt 1860 Army. The Remington featured a strong, solid-frame design with the groove in the top for a rear sight, as opposed to Colt’s open-top design. Though Colt got the lion’s share of the government contracts, many consider the Remington New Model Army the superior firearm.
The barrel address reads “PATENTED SEPT. 14 1858/REMINGTON & SONS ILION NY USA/NEW MODEL”. The left grip bears a faint an inspector’s cartouche.
The overall condition is fair. The metal surfaces have a dark patina with light weathering. The markings are faint but legible. Numbers match. The grips are refinished, the left grip bears a faint cartouche while the right was repaired on the back half. The bore is dark with strong rifling. The action (hammer/trigger) is functional though the cylinder does not currently revolve.
