Description:

The Remington-Smoot New Model No. 3 revolvers were manufactured from 1878 to 1888. This example is marked "E. REMINGTON & SONS. ILION. N.Y. PAT. W.S. SMOOT. OCT. 21. 1873" on top of the barrel rib and has the serial number marked on the frame under and over the cylinder. It features a half moon front sight, notch rear sight, extensive master level scroll and geometric engraving on 75% or more of the visible surfaces, and it is fitted with a pair of smooth pearl grips. There is a removable collection mark, "KH551", in white on the butt. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Excellent, retains 97% plus of the original nickel finish with a few scattered patches of darker grey patina/light pitting and some dings visible on the cylinder flute edge. The grips are very fine with a hairline crack in the left panel and otherwise minimal handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
