Almost the whole production were ordered for the various U.S. Government contracts placed during the American Civil War. The famous American showman William F. Cody (Buffalo Bill), carried one of these reliable revolvers during the Indian wars in the mid 19th century and he was known to have said about his Remington "it never failed me". Overall length 14 inches. In quite good condition, no original finish remaining, showing minor signs of genuine use and wear and usual dings and scratches. Some dents to the bottom of one wooden grip. Working action is crisp. Ref 9689.
