    Remington Pocket Revolver 31 calibre .31 Revolver

    Pistol / Hand GunsRevolverRemingtonCalibre .31

    This is an interesting revolver and scarce as most were converted from percussion to metallic cartridge by 1870


    In 1865, as the American Civil War was coming to an end, the firm of E. Remington & Sons began to look at the reality of an immediate future without large US military manufacturing contracts as their primary market. This meant that for the foreseeable future civilian sales would likely be the bulk of Remington’s business, unless they could secure peacetime contracts with the US government or military contracts with foreign governments. One of the primary indications of the firm’s change in business strategy was the introduction of the Remington New Model Pocket Revolver. This diminutive handgun was clearly intended for sale to the general public and was not a military pattern firearm.

    The new pocket model was intended to compete with the venerable Colt Model 1849 “Pocket” revolver and was essentially a scaled-down pocket version of the large frame Remington percussion revolvers that had been sold to the US military by the thousands during the Civil War. The gun was a five-shot, single action, .31 calibre percussion revolver. The octagonal barrel was available in four standard factory lengths from 3” to 4.5” in half-inch increments.
    This revolver is mechanically sound, good grips and faded to an even grey patina but with distinct manufacturing stampings.
    A good example.
