Scarce Remington Commercial Model
1861 Army Percussion Revolver - Serial no. 3306, 44 cal.,
8 inch octagon bbl., blue finish, walnut grips. This is an example of one
of approximately 6,000 Model 1861 Army revolvers manufactured in 1862.
This model is sometimes referred to as the “Old Army Model” and features the
distinctive channel cut along the top of the loading lever to allow removal of the
cylinder pin without dropping the loading lever. The top barrel flat has the patent date/address
marking. The rear of the cylinder has inspector’s initials “B” and “L” along with the number “2” and
the partial serial number “3806,” likely a factory error. The inspector’s initial “B” also appears on the
left side of the trigger guard but no cartouche appears on the grip, making this a rare civilian sale
revolver during the Civil War. Matching serial numbers are on the barrel, right grip panel, and grip strap. CONDITION: Very good, retaining 40% original blue finish with a smooth brown patina on the balance. A small collection number label is on the butt. The grips are also very good with a single letter carved on butt and minor dings and scratches. Mechanically excellent. A scarce civilian Remington Model 1861 Revolver when nearly all production was war related.
Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection.

have faint cartouches. The top barrel flat has the two-line 1858 patent date/address marking.
Small letter inspection marks are stamped on most of the major components. The barrel and
cylinder are numbered to the gun.

Scarce Remington First Type New
Model Pocket Percussion Revolver with Iron Spur
Trigger - Serial no. 8975, 31 cal., 3 1/2 inch octagon bbl., blue/
silver finish. Manufactured from 1865 to 1873, the majority of New Model
Pocket production was manufactured or converted to use metallic cartridges,
making original percussion examples relatively scarce. Very few of these First
Type revolver were manufactured with an iron trigger and trigger sheath like this example,
the majority being brass like the frame. The top flat of the barrel is marked with the standard
two-line Remington patent dates and address. The serial number is on the left of the grip frame
and the tang of the iron trigger sheath. The serial number appears to have been on the bottom
of the barrel but since obscured with punch dot marks. It is fitted with blade and frame notch
sights as well as a pair of smooth rosewood grips.
CONDITION: Very good, retains 30% of the original blue finish and faint traces of the original silver plating in sheltered areas with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey-brown patina with some scattered patches of light pitting or an attractive antique brass. The dark grips are also very good with a few light chips in the lower edges and otherwise minimal handling marks. Cylinder lockup needs adjustment on two chambers, otherwise mechanically excellent.
Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection.
Estimate: 1,100 - 1,600
