Manufactured from 1877 to 1888, it is estimated that approximately 23,000 of these New Model No. 4 revolvers were produced, with about 20% of those chambered in .41 RF, and even fewer engraved. The one-line E. Remington & Sons address is on top of the barrel and the serial number is on the inside bottom and top of the frame, with partial serial number "578" on the rear face of the silver plated cylinder. The revolver shows about 80% coverage masterful New York style floral scroll and geometric pattern engraving including flourishes on the chambers of the cylinder. It is fitted with blade and notch sights, and a pair of smooth pearl grips. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection
Fine, retains 70% plus of the original nickel finish with some scattered patches of light flaking/very light surface pitting, and showing an attractive antique patina. The cylinder was replated during the period and remains 30% in tact. The grips are also fine with a small chip at the toe of the left panel and otherwise minimal handling marks. Front sight is absent. Mechanically fine.
