    Remington New Model Army .44 caliber, six shot cylinder, serial number 25632. These revolvers are often incorrectly referred to as the Model 1858 because the three line legend on the barrel top reads, "PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858 / REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, NEW YORK, U.S.A. / NEW - MODEL" but the correct nomenclature is the New Model Army. These pistols differed from the Navy Models in caliber and barrel length with the New Army boasting .44 caliber and an octagonal 8 inch barrel versus .36 and 7.375 inches for the Navy. This pistol is of standard configuration with serial numbers on the left frame bottom below the grip panel and on the bottom of the barrel above the loading lever. The cylinder is also marked, "56" and "32" in successive flats on the back. A cryptic "W" is noted on the cylinder, the right rear of the barrel and on the left side of the frame just behind the recoil shield. Other markings include an "S" on the left side of the loading lever and a "P" on the trigger guard just behind the front screw. Mechanically very good, the pistol was polished at one time, and no original finish remains on the barrel and frame with the patent information mostly removed from the top of the barrel. Some finish appears on the cylinder and loading lever, and the trigger guard exhibits an apparently unmolested yellow patina. The two piece grips exhibit minor wear with good color.
