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.
This example features a Civil War period serial number. Small government inspector markings are found throughout. The barrel address reads “PATENTED SEPT. 14 1858/E. REMINGTON & SONS ILION NY USA”. The grips show significant wear and some graffiti in the way of initials and notches cut into the right panel that have been filled. The left grip bears a faint an inspector’s cartouche.
The overall condition is good. The metal surfaces have a very dark patina. The markings are faint but mostly legible. Numbers match. The walnut grips are in good shape. The bore is good, dark with strong rifling. The action on this revolver is excellent. Here is your chance to own a distinguished example of a Civil War Remington!
