Description:

Introduced in 1863, the Remington-Elliot was an improved version of the "Zig-Zag" pepperbox, using a fixed barrel group with a rotating hammer assembly and double action ring trigger, setting the distinctive pattern for Remington's later pocket pistols. Silver bead front and frame notch rear sights, with the 2-line address and patent dates on top of the barrels. The pistol has about 80% coverage engraving which consists mostly of floral scroll and geometric designs on the frame and barrels. It is fitted with a pair of smooth pearl grips. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains half of the replated gold finish with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, over some scattered very light surface pitting, and crisp engraving. The grips are very fine with a hairline crack in the right and otherwise light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
