I love the brass furniture on this style gun. It is the model 1863 military rifle known to collectors as the "Zouave" pattern rifle. We don't really know how they got the name but it has been used for decades by collectors. These were made by the famous firm of Remington in Ilion, New York and it is so marked on the side of the lockplate. Also on the lockplate it has the clear production date of 1863 stamped behind the hammer. The mechanics of the gun are fully functioning on all positions. As you can see the barrel is full length with the original front and rear sights intact. The rear sight has one of the original two leafs intact. At the breech of the gun it has the matching 1863 production date as well as the Remington and Government inspector marks. On the side of the breech of the barrel it has the stamping of "STEEL" to denote the high quality steel used for the barrel production. Beside the Steel marking it has the "H.S.L." stamping that let us know that it was inspected by Homer S. Lathe who approved the gun for use by the Government. The barrel retains about 65+% of the original bluing that has turned to a pretty plum color that you see pictured. It has The bore of the barrel still has the very distinctive three lands and grooves visible. The stock has a very fine color to the walnut wood. On the flat opposite of the lockplate it has the pair of inspector cartouches still crisply visible. This is where the gun was approved for military service by the government. One is "BH" which stands for Benjamin Hannis and the other is "HDJ" for Henry D. Jennings. This gun design has always been one of my favorites because of all of the brass furniture. The brass parts include the patchbox and buttplate, barrel bands, triggerguard and nose cap. All of the brass on the gun has a beautiful golden color patina from the years that displays superbly from all angles. It still retains both of the original sling swivels and the ramrod is an excellent original. This is a great looking Remington rifle that anyone would appreciate and is above most of the ones you encounter.
