RARE TRANSITIONAL**AMERICAN CIVIL WAR ERA** Remington 1858 Army New Model 6 Shot .44 Henry Rim Fire Obsolete Calibre Single Action Revolver Period Converted From Percussion Cap & Ball. Sn 19354 - 19354
The 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. Due to limited availability of Colt 1860 Army Revolvers at the time, large numbers of the Remington revolver were ordered by the U.S. Government. It was favoured for its durability and ability to quickly reload by switching to another pre-loaded cylinder. It saw use in the American West, both in its original percussion configuration and as a metallic cartridge conversion. This example was contemporarily converted from its original percussion form to fire metallic .44 Henry Rim Fire cartridges by modification of the cylinder and frame to allow loading from the side, a different hammer shape & addition of a sliding ejector rod. The pistol has an 8" octagonal barrel and measures 14" overall. The bore has just light staining consistent with age and crisp rifling. The underside of the barrel is stamped with faint serial number which appears to be '93045'. The top barrel flat is marked ‘Patented Sept 14 1958 E. Remington & Son Ilion’ New York USA’ and ‘New Model’. The frame and barrel have small factory inspector’s marks (illustrated). It has a blade fore sight, grooved frame rear sight, steel frame & its original captive lever ramrod. Its original Walnut grips have knocks bumps and bruises to be expected with age.
