MODEL ARMY REVOLVER...FACTORY CONVERSION TO .46 RIM FIRE, without
Ejector...PRESENTATION ENGRAVED BACK STRAP
This is a marvelous Remington revolver, both in condition, historical significance, scarcity, and a presentation. This Model was introduced in 1863 as a .44 caliber six shot revolver, and totally discontinued in 1875. It was after 1868 Remington realized the new self contained cartridge era was upon them. The beginning trend was to convert to cartridge, and rim fire cartridges were well established. Remington decided to go " big " , and in a limited quantity, and convert at the FACTORY some New Model Army revolvers to a five shot, .46 rim fires. Serial No. 8515X is one of these rare .46 rim fires, and has the Factory conversion number on 412, and C on the grip frame. The conversion came two ways, with an ejector rod, and without, this one is with out. This .46 Rim Fire has about 80 -85 % of the original factory bright blue finish. The balance is a thinning blue with plum patina tones. The brass trigger guard shows about 5% of the silver plate, but the grips are perfect with all the varnish, and a lustrous finish. All factory applied markings are present, barrel address, serial numbers, conversion number etc... This Remington has a personal significance to 1869 and Christmas. The back strap is gracefully in script engraved" M. Nichols, from F.R. Lord Dec. 25, 1869 "
Judging by the condition, this must have had deep meaning to M. Nichols, as the Remington remains in ultra high condition with little or maybe no use. Mechanically, this Remington .46 Rim Fire has a 100% correct functioning working action ! NO mechanical issues. A scarce Remington, with historical meaning, plus the benefit of excellent condition and mechanical function.

|REMINGTON MODEL 1875 ARMY REVOLVER, in .44
REMINGTON, "EGYPTIAN CONTRACT"....1875
Remington was never successful in securing a contract with the U.S. Government for Military use. However there is evidence that about 650 Nickel Plated versions were purchased by the Interior Department in 1883 for Indian Police on Western Reservations. Foreign Governments were different, as Remington had a huge contract with the Egyptian Army for their Rolling Block rifles. In 1875 Egypt ordered 10,000 Model 1875 Revolvers, but there was a big problem. They owed considerable sums of money to Remington for the Rifles, therefore few to none were actually shipped to Egypt. This revolver, Serial No.670X ( actual serial number) is an early production, first year, therefore does not have a batch number for a serial number. Overall, it has none of the original blue finish, just a few areas to be seen , the balance is a soft natural original gray patina with just a hint of plum color. The Walnut grips show some hand wear, and minor nicks, but NO damage.
Mechanically, this 1875 works 100% correctly on ALL the working actions, each and every time. ALL factory applied markings, barrel address etc... are clear and present. The original Lanyard Ring is present. It has the early style "pinch" front sight. Only the very earliest Remington 1875's were chambered in .44 Remington, and today a single cartridge can cost a collector upwards to $50. Not many of these rare Egyptian Models EVER surface, a handful here and there, so this is a unique opportunity for the Remington, or Frontier Revolver Collector to fill an important collecting spot. PRICE $ 3,650
The original Walnut grip still has the Egyptian Cartouche of FR on the grip.
This is a .44 Remington Cartridge, and has a unique appearance among 44 cartridges. (Not For Sale / Display Only)
