The primary handgun of Federal cavalry regiments during the last two years of the Civil War, these rugged revolvers remained in service with the regular cavalry regiments on the frontier until they were replaced with the Model 1873 Colt Cavalry Revolvers in 1875. This example of the Remington New Model Army Revolver was manufactured in 1864. This features a blue barrel, frame, cylinder, loading lever, grip straps, a brass trigger guard and two-piece walnut grips. The top of the barrel is roll-stamped: “PATENTED SEPT. 14.1858 / REMINGTON & SONS. ILION.NEWYORK. U.S.A. / NEW MODEL”. The non-matching serial numbers are stamped on the underside of the barrel and on the left side of the grip strap. A final inspection mark is stamped on the lower edge of the left grip. Single letter sub-inspection marks are stamped on most components. Antique, Ships direct to buyers home
