Re: Is this a real gun?

Ha! Worse then colt. They had a fire in 62? Now that I think about it that’s why the Remington contract came about but anyway they lost all the records prior to that after that they have a pretty good database in fact you can Google the serial number and within seconds have make model and year of pr...

Re: 1863 Remington New Army .44 with grip notches

She’s certainly a beaut... I would surmise that the grip notches or lines inside the grips were for a common soldier, who may not know how to read or write, let alone recognize numbers to indicate that it was, his gun. “hey man, take off the grips, I’ve got three lines inside mine” purely speculatio...

Re: Is this a real gun?

Daniel I just reread your post, do you think they added the stamp new army to the gun? I read somewhere that there was a transition from 10,000 to 20,000 in the serial number group do you think that could be part of the transition.? And they added some bits or made some modifications? What are your ...

Re: Is this a real gun?

My mother would certainly yell at me if I did not represent well. I’m excited to find out the information about the gun I appreciate it greatly. It definitely has that been there done that look and certainly looks like it has seen its fair share of use. I’m a little surprised that Remington doesn’t ...

Re: Is this a real gun?

My chin is a lot better now that I have that information. Thank you for asking. I’m going to pass on the gun I’m not very big on the factory re-blue and not all matching numbers. I decided to go with a “lesser option“ of a non-re-blued all numbers matching 1858. Numbers match on the frame trigger gu...

If you or anyone could point me in the directions which way to research I would be happy to do it and would enjoy the task. I’m new to Remington’s like I said although it does seem like a fine handgun. It seems...

I was doing some research on the buffalo soldiers and came across an old auction I don’t know if the gun is sold or watt but do you think there is any validity due to it or...
