This Remington .44 caliber percussion revolver with matching serials of 63082 on the frame and the barrel, was made on military contract, one of 106,000 bought by the US during the Civil War. It has the military inspector’s letter markings on the various parts, and the military’s final acceptance inspection cartouche is still visible on the left wood grip.
This gun has a good amount of original blue finish let, with some drifted to a nice plum color. The wood grips fit fully. The cartouche showing this gun was inspected and accepted by the military inspector is still visible on the left side of the grips. The original nipples are clear, and the action locks up nicely. The is bright and the rifling sharp, much better than you usually see.
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.
