Description

Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 2350. A civil war era Remington New Model Army .44 percussion revolver. Made circa 1861-1865. The barrel stamped on top with "Patented Sept.14 1858. E. Remington & Sons, Ilion, New York U.S.A. New Model". In 1861 these .44 calibre revolvers were manufactured by Remington for the Union Ordnance Department at a cost of just fifteen dollars each. A few thousand Remington's found their way into Confederate Army hands much to the resentment of the Union army. It is thought that crates of these pistols were smuggled over the border and sold at a higher premium to the anxious soldiers of the Confederacy. Many officers would purchase this model revolver with money out of their own pocket rather than accept another inferior revolver. The reason for this was quite simply that the Remington 1858 was more superior, dependable, robust and much more importantly it could be reloaded in a matter of seconds with a pre-loaded cylinder. In very good condition retaining a good amount of it's original blued finished. Action in excellent working order. Overall length 14 inches. A nice example of a true civil war era Remington percussion revolver. Ref 1877. This is an obsolete antique item and is sold as a collectors item only. No Licence is required in the United Kingdom.
