Reportedly 1,900 Remington-Beals Army revolvers were manufactured from 1861-1862, and only about 750 were inspected by the U.S. government, making these one of the rarest martial Remington revolver. Both grip panels have faint cartouches. The top barrel flat has the two-line 1858 patent date/address marking. Small letter inspection marks are stamped on most of the major components. The barrel and cylinder are numbered to the gun. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Good, with a smooth artificially enhanced plum-brown patina along with some scattered pitting. The grips are also good and have been sanded and re-oiled and have a small couple of chips at the toes and a series of dings on the bottom (right panel). Mechanically fine.
