Here is a great looking gun! It is the converted version of the .44 caliber Remington "Army” model revolver. These revolvers were made by Remington for use during the Civil War and were highly prized by cavalrymen of the day. They were originally made as percussion revolvers and then converted so they could fire the more modern cartridges, the .44 caliber rimfire. The guns still basically look the same except for the back of the cylinder was trimmed off and the chambers are larger to allow for the larger cartridges. At the back of the cylinder opening they added a piece to fill in where the nipple of the original cylinder would have gone and one side has the milled out opening instead of the loading gate. This is one of the ones that were made without the ejector rod on the right hand side of the frame.The barrel is still full-length at 8 inches. You can still read the Remington maker mark along the top of the barrel as well as the Ilion, New York production location. As you see, the metal parts have a good amount of the original factory bluing in the protected areas. You can still see the inspector initials stamped into the metal where the gun was originally approved for service. The gun has the original serial numbers of 79,388 on the major parts. The action of the gun works well on all positions. On the handle of the gun it has the original 2-piece walnut wood grips intact. On the left hand grip you can still clearly see the inspector cartouche with the initials "OWA". These are the inspector initials of Oliver W. Ainsworth. This is a really good looking and interesting Remington Army revolver.
