Description:

Marketed as the New Repeating Pistol [Elliot's Patent] No.2, the Remington-Elliot .32 Caliber Pepperbox was manufactured from 1863 to 1888, concurrently with the .22 Pepperbox. Silver finished blade front and groove rear sights with "MANUFACTURED BY E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, N.Y." on the left barrel rib and "ELLIOT'S PATENTS MAY 29, 1860-OCT.1, 1861" on the right markings. The top barrels are decoratively etched with a 1 inch wedge of scrollwork extending back from the muzzle and a 2 inch tall, scroll accented array of arms extending from the muzzle. The frame shows near full coverage engraving, chiefly of a scroll pattern with floral accents around the barrel hinge, checkerboard patterns above the grips, a radiant burst emerging from the rear sight and a small circled "B" on the left side of the frame.

Rating Definition:

Very good plus with a mixed gray patina. Showing mild spotting and handling marks overall. Strong nickel is present on the trigger with mild flaking. The grips are fine with a few scratches and dings. Mechanically excellent.
