Description:

The Remington-Smoot New Model No. 3 revolvers were manufactured from 1878 to 1888. It is estimated that approximately 12,500 of these early production New Model No. 3 revolvers were manufactured with the bird's head grip frame. This example is marked "E. REMINGTON & SONS. ILION. N.Y. PAT. W.S. SMOOT. OCT. 21. 1873" on top of the barrel which correctly lacks a rib. The serial number is marked on the frame under and over the cylinder. It features a half moon blade front sight, notch rear sight, extensive master level scroll and geometric engraving on 75% or more of the visible surfaces, and checkered grips. A removable collection marking "416" is on the bottom of the frame. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 99% plus of the original nickel finish with only the slightest handling marks and crisp engraving. The grips are also excellent with only the slightest handling evidence. Mechanically excellent. Finding a better example would be nearly impossible!
