Manufactured between 1871 and 1888, the Remington-Rider is one of the few pistol designs to use a tubular magazine, which front-loads in the style of the Volcanic or Henry rifle. Blade and breechblock mounted peep sights, with "E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, N.Y./RIDERS PAT. AUG. 15, 1871." on the top barrel flat, silver finished checkered magazine cap and checkered hammer and breechblock spur. Zig zag engraving is visible on the upper flats of the barrel, with punch dot backed scroll engraving on the sides of the frame and the backstrap. Smooth two piece rosewood grips. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Excellent plus, with 99% of the bright original nickel finish overall. Strong niter blue is present on the screws and pins, with a deep royal blue on the hammer and vivid case colors on the breechblock. The grips are also excellent, with mild varnish loss concentrated on the top of the left panel. Mechanically excellent. One cannot improve upon this Remington Rider Magazine Pistol!
