Manufactured c. 1911, the first year of Remington-U.M.C. production of these pistols. It is believed, that for only a short time at the beginning of production, that these pistols were serial numbered in sequential order without an "L" prefix, these being numbered approximately 1-3000. Most of the Remington-U.M.C. production was finished blue, making nickeled examples like this scarce. The top barrel rib is marked "REMINGTON ARMS--U.M.C.CO.ILION,N.Y." and the serial number is marked on the bottom of the barrel and left of the grip frame. It is fitted with integral blade and notch sights, extractor on the left, and checkered hard rubber grips. Includes an unnumbered correct factory box with complete end label. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Very fine, retains 85% plus of the original nickel finish with a few patches of minor flaking/light pitting on the left and some thinning on the front strap, both revealing a mostly smooth grey patina. The grips are also very fine with a few minor flat spots in the overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. The box is very good with moderate wear and tears to the edges of the lid.
