687. Remington New Model Army Cartridge Conversion Revolver

Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #85394, 46 RF, 8" octagon barrel with a good plus bore showing strong rifling, frosting and light oxidation throughout. The metal surfaces of this factory conversion revolver have toned to mottled gunmetal gray overall with numerous patches of cleaned light pitting, tool marks and staining. The loading lever screw head has broken off and the rear of the barrel has been fitted with an added dovetailed rear notch sight which appears to be a period modification. Only the edges of the barrel markings are still visible but the Rollin White patent stamp on the cylinder is still very clear. The triggerguard is a lightly cleaned goldenrod overall with some darker patches of staining and crisp inspection stamps. The smooth walnut grips appear to be un-numbered but remain in very good condition as lightly cleaned long ago with a small crack at the base of the right panel along with a 1" crack turning to a chip at the top edge. The barrel and triggerguard are matching the frame along with a matching assembly number on the barrel and frame. Any assembly number that may have been present on the cylinder has worn away and the revolver still times and locks up quite well. A rather salty but honest example of a factory conversion Remington.
