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 and barrel without a rib. This example is marked "E. REMINGTON & SONS. ILION. N.Y. PAT. W.S. SMOOT. OCT. 21. 1873" on top of the barrel. The serial number is marked on the frame under and over the cylinder. It features a half moon blade front sight and smooth plastic grips. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Very fine, retains 80% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish with the rear grip strap having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina, primarily on high spots and edges. The grips are fine with a hairline crack in each panel and otherwise light handling marks. Mechanically excellent.
