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 period shortened 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. A factory lanyard ring is mounted on the butt.
Fine, retaining 75% original nickel plating with an untouched smooth dark patina on the balance associated with years of holster wear. The grips are undersized modern replacements with overall crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent. A great piece of Remington and Western Frontier history!
