Remington

 

 

Remington 1875 Single Action Army, serial #1316, 44-40 (= .44 W.C.F.), 7 ½" barrel with a very good plus bore with strong rifling. The top of the barrel bears the "E. Remington & Sons, Ilion, NY U.S.A" address and the left side of the frame ahead of the cylinder is stamped "44" indication that this revolver is chambered for 44-40 and not 44 Remington. This revolver is in lovely condition retaining 95 - 97% strong original nickel plated finish overall with minor loss on the loading gate where the area has turned to a smooth gray patina very similar in appearance to the nickel. There are a few small patches of light oxidation staining on the top strap and the left side of the frame. The two piece walnut grips are pencil numbered on the insides and rate near excellent with about 70% original finish remaining. A very fine example of these handsome revolvers.
Flayderman's # 5E-055, in good working order and fine condition    reserved
