This was Remington's first revolver model and was only manufactured c. 1857-1858 before transitioning to the 2nd Model. This is the "4th Issue" variant with the "F. BEALS PATENT/JUNE 24. '56 & MAY 26. '57" marking on the top of the barrel and "MANUFACTURED BY/REMINGTONS/ILION N.Y." marked on the top strap. It also features a German silver cone front sight and trigger guard and matching serial numbers visible in the trigger guard on the butt of the grip. It comes in a fitted case with a shell pattern powder flask, key, and brass double cavity round ball mold. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection

Rating Definition:

Fine with bright original case colors on the hammer, 40% original blue on the barrel and cylinder, mottled gray and brown patina on the balance, some mild oxidation/pitting, and moderate overall wear. The grip is also fine and displays an attractive aged tone throughout, some minor marks and discoloration on the butt, and light handling wear. Mechanically fine. The relined case and accessories are very good with darker patina and some dents on the flask and minor age and storage related wear.
