Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Originally patented in 1858, these became very popular on the River Boats of the great Mississippi river in the 1870's. They were often used by gamblers and others who would require protection on the often dark decks. Fully nickel plated of which almost all remains, having just a 3" barrel and 4 3/4” overall, this was ideal for a waistcoat pocket. The barrel top strap is marked with the Remington Address:

REMINGTON ARMS CO. ILION, N.Y.

The pistol features lovely polished stag horn grips, which are in excellent condition, with no cracks or wear. The nickel plate on the pistol is still retained over 95% and it looks fantastic. Usually we see these missing over half of the plating, however this example has seen very little use, and still looks great.

A lever on the right of the pistol side releases the barrel, which flips upwards for extraction and reloading. There is even a nice manual extractor on the left side of the pistol, which still has the origin "fire blued" finish. This also shows serial number 255 on the bottom of the barrel, which matches the number under the grips. The hammer has a rather ingenious mechanism that moves the rimfire firing pin up and down alternately, so only one barrel fires at a time. It appears to function correctly, but we have not verified this. The bores are in excellent near mint condition, with little sign of ever having been used, much like the rest of the pistol.

Found in many, many Western Movies these have become an old CLASSIC OF THE AMERICAN WEST. In splendid condition and ready to display!
