Remington manufactured approximately 2,000 of these Model 1890 Single Action Army revolvers in 1891-94. The Model 1890 was the successor to the Model 1875 and 1888 and was also intended to be the competitor to the Wild West legend the Colt Single Action Army. The Model 1890 is one of the most sought after of all of the Remington produced handguns. The top of the barrel is marked "REMINGTON ARMS CO. ILION, N.Y." The caliber designation "44 C.F.W" is marked on the left side of the frame just below the cylinder. The serial number is correctly located on the lower left side of the frame under the grip panel and hand marked on the back of both grip panels. A factory lanyard ring is mounted on the butt.
Excellent, retaining 95% of the untouched original nickel plating showing some typical high spot wear. The left grip panel has the letter "A" just below the monogram and the name "MAX" faintly marked on the bottom; otherwise, the very fine grips show minimal handling marks and overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. This is an excellent original example of a rare Remington Model 1890 Single Action Army Revolver.
