In the spring of 1861, as southern states were leaving the Union, Remington started production of its .36 percussion caliber Beals Model Navy revolvers. Less than two hundred of the first type were made. Some improvements were made, thus creating the Beals, Second Variation, and this is one of these four thousand second type, with matching serial 174 on frame and barrel. See the excellent discussion of these First and Second Type Beals Revolvers in Don Ware’s book Remington Army and Navy Revolvers 1861-1888 at pages 332 to 338
This gun was nickel plated at some time in its history, with the polishing done with light hand, and so edges are still sharp, and this revolver retains most of that plating; there is no rust. The nipples have been recently replaced, and the rifling is still sharp. The cylinder pin shaft is homemade I think the head is original. The mechanics work fine.
The wood grips don’t match each other. The left side is a nice inspected replacement (there is no cartouche, but there is a “c” stamped on the bottom flat). It needs just a little filing at the top to made it fit perfectly. The left side shows more wear and has a chip at the heel. If you have any wood skills, you could easily fix this, make them match, and have a nicer looking gun.

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.
