The top of the barrel, just before the breech, is indistinctly stamped, ''Patented Sept.14.1858. E. Remington & Sons. Ilion. New York. USA. New Model''.
The barrel is stamped underneath with serial number ‘115107’.
The grip is made from scaled twin walnut wood.
The revolver comes with al black leather holster, I do not know if it original or not.

The barrel has a length of 8 inches (20.3 cm) and the revolver has an overall length of 14.5 inches (36.8 cm).
The holster is 14 inches (35.5 cm) long and 8 inches (20.4 cm) wide.
The set weighs 1.45 Kg.

The stamp on the top of the barrel is rather worn. The metal work is in good order with some amount of pitting. The grips are complete with minimum wear.
It cocks, releases and indexes very smoothly with a strong spring.
