This Remington .44 caliber percussion revolver with matching serials of 40132 on the frame and the barrel, was made during the Civil War. The wood grips still have nearly all of the original varnish on them. The wood fits fully.
This gun has a good percentage of original blue on the barrel. The barrel markings are sharp The bore is bright and the rifling sharp. The mechanics are crisp. The nipples have been replaced and I think they are unfired. I believe this gun was set up as a shooter.
Flayderman’s Guide to Antique American Firearms says of these historic big bore revolvers “One of the major handguns of the Civil War, the New Model Army was the stiffest competitor to Colt’s Model 1860 Army. The New Model Army was also the last of Remington’s 44 caliber percussion revolvers. The famous showman William F. “Buffalo Bill” Cody carried of “New Model Army” circa 1866 to mid-1870s for buffalo hunting and the Indian Wars, and claimed “It never failed me.”

I will ship outside of the US, but it is not possible to fully insure items once they are outside of the U.S. postal system...but if the buyer accepts this responsibility of possible damage or loss, and if he checks his Customs laws and is legal to import this particular antique weapon, then I MAY ship outside the USA, depending on the country involved. I know the federal laws about shipping antiques, and will follow them always...but you must make sure that it is legal for you where you live to receive and possess the item you want to buy. Please e-mail for any unclear terms.
