ID ìng a Remington 1858

Post by Jensman217 » Sun Nov 18, 2018 9:05 am

Hello everybody !

I have an original Remington 1858.

The serial number is 67298.

There an several inspector marks on it:

H
L
R

does anybody know the names of the inspectors ?

In which year was the revolver built?
Does anyone else have information?

Thank you and best regards!
Jens

The single initial marks are from the inspector that checked that particular item. There were a lot of them and I'm not aware of any list of their names. We do know the names of the the final acceptance inspectors that stamped their cartouche in the left grip.
