Civil War Remington New Model Army Revolver LOW Serial

Lot 0010 Details

Description
SN 13,445 making it one of the lowest numbers I have owned on a New Model Army. Remington used consecutive serial numbers from one army model to the next. The early Beals Army ran from #1 to around 1,900. The old model 1861 got the next 6,000 or so numbers. And the New Model continued on from there well into the 140,000 range. Our serial number is probably from the first or second month of production. Cal. 44. Among the most popular side arms of the Civil War, this government inspected Army revolver is solid, and crisp. It is 100% original, 100% complete, and mechanically perfect. The Remington was far superior to the Colt in terms of practical design, as the trooper could install a pre-loaded fresh cylinder without the need for tools. In fact he could do so on horseback. The Colt required a mallet and drift to remove the cylinder. The Remington could have cylinders swapped out in seconds by a trooper on horseback. It has a solid frame with a top strap the same as modern service revolvers. It took Colt until 1872 to adopt that feature. Metal markings are crisp including government inspector's initials. Grips are very good with visible inspector's cartouche. Has early cone front sight carried over from the Beals models and found only on low numbered "New Models". The barrel marking is also very early, being a carryover from the old model 1861. Overall brown patina. Good solid cavalry weapon.

Materials, Packing, and UPS Shipping on this item is $18.00. Insurance is $1.50 per hundred. UPS charges $5 for the signature required service. The insurance and signature service are optional, but there can be no insurance for theft or loss without the UPS signature required, service. If you decline signature service and/or insurance and the neighbor kid steals the box off your porch after UPS leaves it.... or if UPS delivers it to the wrong address, or if the UPS truck crashes and burns… You are out of luck. I highly recommend the insurance and signature service.
