The full size Remington 1858 Army New Model Revolvers were used during the American Civil War and the design was the beginning of a successful line of medium and large frame percussion revolvers.

NEW MODEL" The Remington revolver was a secondary, supplemental issue firearm for the Union Army until the Colt factory fire of 1864 (see page 106 of Colt Firearms by Serven). Due to the fire Colt 1860 Army Revolvers were not available for some time, subsequently large numbers of the Remington revolver were ordered by the U.S. Government. It was favoured for its durability. Pocket versions were produced with sheathed triggers and 1858 Pattern pistols saw use in the American West, both in its original percussion configuration and as a Remington Factory metallic cartridge conversion. This is an original Model 1858 Army New Model cap & ball Pocket Revolver. The underside of the barrel is stamped with number ‘6645’ .The pistol’s cylinder can be removed for loading.
