Desirable Remington Model 1890 Single Action Army Revolver - Serial no. 783, 44 WCF cal., 5 3/4 inch round bbl., nickel finish, hard rubber grips. Remington reportedly manufactured 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 of the Colt Single Action Army like its predecessors. This model 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.,” and “44 C.F.W” is marked on the left side of the frame just below the cylinder. The matching serial number is marked on the lower left side of the frame under the grip and loading gate. The revolver has blade front and frame notch rear sights, lanyard stud and ring mounted on the butt and checkered hard rubber grips with the “RA” monogram at the tops.
CONDITION: Extremely fine, retaining 90% original nickel finish with a cylinder drag line and minor handling marks. Front sight has been slightly shaved. The replaced grips are very good with a repaired left heel and worn checkering. Hammer is not solid in the safety notch, otherwise action is fine. Provenance: The Milan J. Turk Collection.
Estimate: 6,500 - 9,500
