Re: Help identifying New Army revolver

Hello, Your revolver was manufactured as a 44 caliber percussion revolver in December of 1864. Unfortunately there are no records as to which unit or soldier the revolvers were issued. Can you tell us the three digit number on the frame? It looks like 406 to me. Are there any other numbers on the ba...

Re: Remington 1875 - No barrel address

It's on the tab that allows the gate to pivot. You will probably only see a couple of numbers because you have a five digit serial number.

Re: Remington 1875 - No barrel address

Hi Peter, Good luck on finding any 44 Remington cartridges. The last one I got took five years to find it and cost $65. There should not be a serial number on the under side of the barrel. The 1875 should have the serial number on the frame under the left grip, on the trigger guard tab and on the lo...

Re: Remington New Model Police Revolver

I do not know of anyone who has any for sale. You will probably have better luck if you post your needs in the "Wanted to Buy pre 1899" forum.

Hello Joe,
Welcome to the Forum. Your revolver was manufactured and shipped to the Ordnance Department in September of 1863. Unfortunately there are no records of to which regiment it was issued.

I hope this helps,

Re: Please Help identify this revolver, better photos posted

I have a New Model Army which has a firing pin installed similar to yours. It is a Remington Factory type 1 Kittredge conversion with the five shot 46-rim fire Rollin White marked cylinder. It has been further modified to add a center fire spring-loaded firing pin. The hammer has been milled flat li...

Re: 1958 New Army serial research help

Hi Phil, There are no records by serial number to whom the revolvers were issued. However, there is the Springfield Research Database, which lists the serial numbers of revolvers, which were gleaned from the National Archives and the units they were issued to. All of the serial numbers are not in th...

Re: 1958 New Army serial research help

Hi Phil,
Both of those revolvers were manufactured and delivered to the Ordnance Department in November of 1863. Unfortunately there are no records to whom the revolvers were issued.

Sorry I can’t be of more help,

Hello Mike, Your pistol was one of 6500 originally made as the model 1865 pistol for the Navy and delivered in 1867 and 1868. On the right side of the frame is the proof mark ”P” along with the letters FCW for Frank C Warner who was a military inspector at the time. There was also his FCW cartouche ...

Re: SERIAL NUMBERS OF 1890 REVOLVERS

Hi Dan,
Flayderman said approximately 2020. I think the numbers are approximate enough. By the way SN 2021 was auctioned by RI in 2013 and was supposedly owned by Cole Younger. SN 2028 was auctioned by Poulin in 2017 with a holster with an Indian Police badge attached.

Regards,

Re: Question, odd G stamp on right grip frame

Hi Chuck, I have seen a Remington 1875 revolver with that same size ‘G’ stamped on the frame under the right grip. I have no idea what it means. I doubt is has anything to do with the mixed serial numbers. I have over the years recorded sixty New Model Army revolvers with mixed serial numbers. From ...

Re: 3 CW Remington Revolver pick up

Hi, NMA serial number 43338 was made in November of 1863. The "initials carved in the grip" is most likely the Principal sub inspectors cartouche indicating the revolver was accepted by the Ordnance Department. NMA serial number 80736 was made in June of 1864. If there is no cartouche on the grip an...
