Re: Remington Model 1875 & 1890 references

Hi Orpington, Unfortunately, not really. There have been some articles written about them, and they are mentioned in a few books, but no books on them. There are a couple of RSA members researching the 75s, and a couple researching the 88s. I am compiling a serial list of the 90s, but not doing any ...

Re: Remington New Model Army

Hi, Just saw this in the rifle section. Webb is right. First relist this in the pistol section. Then post in the WTB section of the want ads here. You might also post an ad in the want ads of the RSA magazine. Your gun was made in early, Feb. 1864. It is one of 148,550 NMAs made so the odds of findi...

Re: Dating my 1858 Remington Navy

Hi Obi,

Your gun was one of the first made in Jan. of 1864. The letters on the gun are inspector's marks, so your gun was a US Government purchase. Unless there is an entry in the Springfield Research files, there is no way to know when or to who it was issued. The cut bbl hurts any value.

Re: remington m95 parts

Hi SAP 45-70, You might have better luck looking for parts for the Double Derringer. The model 95 designation for the Double Derringer started in 1922, and many, if not most people don't know the model 95. You'll also most likely find parts under the Double Derringer heading and may find parts at Di...

Re: Remington 1875 information

Hi Jr 47, Does the number on the tab of the trigger guard match the frame? There should also be a number on the tab of the loading gate. There were about 25K to 30K model 75s made. They were made from 1875 to 1886. The first 16k were sequentially numbered, but after that batch numbers were used. Eac...

Re: Information about a handgun, please

Hi Mike, Yes, it’s a New Model Pocket revolver. It should be in 32 rim fire. Based on the serial number, you are probably right, that it was made as a cartridge revolver, probably in the 1872-75 era. Cartridges were made for Navy arms about 40 years ago and some are still available. Pricey, but they...

Re: New Model 1858 Different S/N

Hi Dauphin, Welcome to the RSA site. The serials were both made in Jan., 1865. My guess is that the bbl was damaged and replaced, but you would think if that were the case, that the frame number would be lower than the bbl number. It is also possible that the frame failed inspection, and it was scra...

Re: NEED HELP, Identify 1858 New Army Conversion

Hi Nodakr,

You might try Buffalo Arms for BP loads. Slug the bore, and measure the cylinder length to get the OAL of the cartridge, and go from there. The original factory conversions were in 44 Colt, so a cut down 44 spec case should work.
Good luck and let us know how it shoots.

Re: NEED HELP, Identify 1858 New Army Conversion

Hi Clay, While we wait for Bill's expertise, I can help with the numbers. Both numbers were made in May of 1863. It is possible that for some reason the bbl failed inspection, and another bbl was screwed into the frame. That's just a guess. What is the number on the trigger guard tab? If it matches ...

Re: Help identifying New Army revolver

An idea for your shadow box would be to find a cartridge for the gun and make it part of the display. If you want to make it inert, just drill a small hole into the side of the case. dump the powder and squirt WD-40 into the case. That will kill the primer, and any residual powder. Once finished, po...

Re: Muzzleloading 4 bore Remington barrel

Just throwing out a guess here, and agree with an above poster, that this started out as a rifle and was later converted. The reason I think this, is that the barrel is part octagon, and part round. I've never seen and octagon, or part octagon shotgun barrel. There's my guess, what's your's? ; )

The serial number Is on the tab of the trigger guard, the part that fits into the frame.

Re: Remington New Model Pocket Revolver cartridge conversions

Hi Rem1858, Rem converted, or made conversion versions of all their percussion models beginning in 1873 when the Rollin White patent finally ended. Before that they did make conversions of some models, but every manufacturer had to wait until the courts ruled on the White patent. After Remington was...

Sorry for the mis-info on serial location. Don't know why I thought that. Bill is right on the locations.
