|REMINGTON VEST POCKET PISTOL a.k.a. SAW
HANDLE DERRINGER .22 @ 1866
This Single Shot .22 Derringer was introduced in 1865, and discontinued in 1888,with a total production between 17,000 and 20,000 pieces. It had a 3-1/4 inch round barrel, with integral octagonal breech into the frame. This specimen, Serial No. B279X is finished in a deep lustrous Remington blue. The hammer still has it strong Fire Blue colors.
The Walnut grips are in perfect condition, exhibiting only minimal hand wear. The image also shows the Fire Blue still remaining on the hammer. The hammer besides firing the cartridge, also when not cocked served as a breech block. The Vest Pocket has about 95 -96%+ of all the original blue, thinning only on the back strap and bottom of the butt. ALL factory applied markings are clear and present : barrel address, and serial numbers. It was quite popular among the sporting crowd of the day, as it was unseen security. Most of the ones found today lack finish, so this one is quite unique. Being carried in a pocket, vest or otherwise tends to wear off finish. This example is certainly "collection" worthy !
|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)
