REMINGTON VEST POCKET PISTOL .22 a.k.a. No.1 Saw Handle Deringer  @1871

This small Deringer was the invention of William H. Elliot, and manufactured by Remington from 1865 - 1888. Manufactured in a small quantity of about 17,000 pieces. This one, Serial No. 980X would have been from about the 1871 production, and it has the patent dates on top of the frame, many do not. Remington's Ilion, N.Y. Patent Oct. 1, 1861 . The remaining original finish has turned a soft gray undisturbed patina, with enough color to recognize it was once a blue specimen. MOST IMPORTANT: 1. The grips are not cracked or broken, as most found are .2. It is mechanically 100% correct in the working action. This one has the 3-1/4 inch round barrel, and post front sight.

Definitely a very small Deringer, and correctly named as a " Vest Pocket" Deringer.  An excellent choice for the collector who wants one in the collection, at a reasonable price. PRICE $ 650



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 $ 3,850


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)
