Description:

Remington manufactured 116,765 New Model Revolvers for the Union Army from 1863 to 1875. They were the second most widely issued revolvers by the Union and remained in use even after the war. This example shows standard markings and features including matching serial numbers on the barrel, frame, and both grip panels, as well as a "GP" cartouche on the left panel.

Rating Definition:

Very good plus, retains nearly 20% original blue finish with the balance a mottled grey/brown patina. The trigger guard is mostly an age darkened brass with a small patch of verdigris behind the trigger. The grips are fine with some minor dings, dents, and scratches, and a crisp cartouche. Mechanically excellent.
