|A VERY SCARCE
VARIATION within A SCARCE MODEL !!
REMINGTON MODEL 1890 SINGLE ACTION ARMY in 44/40...
A COWBOYS COMPANION IN OLD NEW MEXICO !
This 1890 Remington Single Action Army was truly the day to day carry for a working Cowboy in New Mexico of the 19th century. Discovered in the family, and recently sold outside the family. ONLY 2,020 of this Model were ever produced, so scarce ! In recent research it has been discovered quantity by year, this Model 1890, Serial No. (not batch number) 140X was made and shipped in 1893. Even rarer ! it is the factory 5-1/2 inch barrel version. Originally a blue revolver, only about 3-5% of the blue remains in select areas. The balance is a soft gray all original patina, never ! having been cleaned or touched. In fact the factory lanyard ring is still present. The hard rubber grips have all their checkering and the Remington Logo. Only the bottom of the grips have a small amount missing at the grip pin.
Mechanically the 1890 functions perfectly each and every time the hammer is cocked. It rotates, indexes, locks tight, and releases smoothly to fire, a perfect action. ALL factory markings are present and legible, plus ALL parts are the original parts. This proves there were many Single Actions in the Old West and Remington's were well thought of and endorsed by several high profile westerners. A true and honest Cowboy rig of the Old West @ 1893.
This is the original single loop holster and cartridge belt that has been with the Remington from the beginning. The belt shows the clipped corner square buckle style of the same era as the Remington.
|REMINGTON FACTORY CONVERSION of The New
Model of 1858 , TO .44 HENRY RIM FIRE 5 shot.
At the end of the Civil War there was an abundance, surplus if you will, of large frame revolvers. This fit well into the new marketing plans of the firearms manufacturers. The race was on to convert percussion revolvers to the new self contained cartridge revolvers. Already on the Market was the .44 Henry rim fire cartridge, already accepted, so a natural for conversion of the 1858 New Model Remington. This Remington, Serial No. 71769 ( Conversion #2021) was converted to a 5 shot .44 Henry Rim Fire. As was the case they came with or without the ejector, this one does not have the ejector. This one is identified with the Rollin hite Patent date rolled on the cylinder, a VERY desired feature for the Conversions.
PATENTED APR 3'd 1865 , This is a premium for this model to have the patent on the cylinder.
It made a lot of sense to convert to .44 Henry, as there were already Models out there using the cartridge in big demand, the Henry Rifle and quickly the Winchester '66. The Conversion has very clean and near perfect Walnut grips, showing only normal to light hand wear.
The Remington has about 5-10% blue finish remaining, scattered throughout, mostly on lever and barrel. The balance is an untouched and original gray patina. Mechanically this Conversion is 100% on ALL the working actions, each and every time !! ALL factory applied markings are clear and legible to read.
A very desirable conversion and showing the historical trend for cartridges, the early ones, as Remington did convert to other 44's, but this was a first and quite significant.
