    Description

    Remington New Model Army .44 caliber, six shot cylinder, serial number 28741. Remington New Model Army revolvers were produced from 1863 to 1875 and proved very popular with the Ordinance Department as they were cheaper than the comparable Colt pistol. Overall, some 115,557 New Model Army revolvers would be procured by war's end, just slightly fewer than the 127,157 Colt M1860 revolvers bought over the same period. This particular pistol bears an 8 inch octagonal barrel and is marked, "PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858 / E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, NEW YORK, U.S.A. / NEW - MODEL" on the top of the barrel. Serial numbers are noted on the left side of the frame under the grips and on the bottom of the barrel above the loading lever. The last four digits appear to be stamped on the back of the cylinder, but they are mostly illegible. Other markings include a "W" on the left side of the loading lever, a "W" on the left frame just behind the recoil shield and a "P" on the trigger guard just behind the front screw. Mechanically very good, this pistol was refinished, probably in the 1960s, with bluing remaining on all steel parts except the rear of the frame, front strap and back strap. The front sight is missing, probably from the aforementioned refinishing. The trigger guard exhibits a nice yellow patina, and the grips are relatively mark free although a chip on the lower left panel is noted for accuracy.
