Catalog Page: 261
Class: Antique
Description:

Manufactured from 1865 to 1873 in both percussion and factory converted or original .38 RF configuration, with this example in the latter. It has the three-line patent/address/model marking on the top barrel flat, and the serial number on the left of the grip frame, bottom of the barrel, and hand marked on the inside of each grip. It has standard features.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 70% plus of the original blue on the barrel, cylinder, and loading lever, traces of the original silver on the triggerguard, and the balance mostly a smooth brown patina or attractive antique brass. The grips are very good with a few scattered minor handling marks and retaining more than half of the varnish. The timing of the cylinder needs adjustment, otherwise mechanically fine.

Manufacturer: Remington Arms Inc
Model: Rider
Type: Revolver
Gauge: 32 RF
Barrel: 3 inch octagon
Finish: blue
Grip: hard rubber

Catalog Page: 261
Class: Antique
Description:

Manufactured after 1873, with a total production of 2,000 split between percussion and rimfire configuration. The two-line Remington address and patent dates is on the top barrel flat and the serial number is on the bottom of the barrel and bottom of the frame. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Fine, the cylinder retains about 70% of the original blue finish, traces of original blue elsewhere, and the balance mostly a smooth grey patina with a few scattered patches of light pitting. The grips are very good with a couple minor flat spots in the otherwise crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
