The barrel stamped on top with "Patented Sept.14 1858. E. Remington & Sons, Ilion, New York U.S.A. New Model". In 1861 this .44 calibre revolver was 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. (If I had been there during the war, that is probably what I would have been doing). Many officers would purchase this revolver with money out of their own pocket rather than accept the standard army issue 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 good condition retaining at least 70% of it's blued finished. Action in good working order. Overall length 14 inches. A nice example of a true civil war era Remington percussion revolver.
