Guns For Sale - Remington 1861 Beals Patent Navy Model, Civil War-Era Nickel 7 1/2" -- 6-Shot SA Single Action Pistol, MFD 1861 Antique

LSB#: 161129LV84

Make: Remington

Model: Beals Patent 1861 Navy

Serial Number: 174

Year of Manufacture: About 14,500 were produced from 1861-1862, putting the DOM around 1861.

Caliber: .36 Caliber Ball

Action Type: 6-Shot, Single Action, Cylinder Loaded Percussion Revolver

Markings: The top of the barrel's markings are faded but would normally read "BEALS PATENT SEPT. 14, 1858 / MANUFACTURED BY REMINGTONS' ILION, N.Y.", the underside barrel flat, trigger guard hook and left of the frame are marked with the serial number.

Barrel Length: 7 1/2"

Sights / Optics: The front sight is a worn blade, dovetailed onto the barrel. The rear sight is a “V” channel on top of the frame.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are smooth walnut panels with brass escutcheons, they move freely in the stock cuts. The left panel looks to be newer than the right, it has a small "O" mark, the wood has a few gaps in fit to flush on the grip straps, there are no major damages, this stock is in Very Good condition. The right stock has a large chip loss and lacks flush fit on all sides to the grip straps. The stock has heavy wear, rating in Poor Plus to Fair condition.

Type of Finish: Nickel

Finish Originality: Refinished

Bore Condition: The bore is dark and the rifling is still defined but interrupted by pitting, the surfaces have scabs of erosion.

Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 78% of its current metal finish. There is pitting on and under the finish, with heavy examples on the inside of the frame. Losses of edge definition and deep bruises are common, please see our pictures. The screw head slots are moderately tooled, some are disfigured. The markings are faded on top of the barrel, the protected markings are clear. Overall, this handgun rates in about Fair Plus to Good condition as refinished.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. Flayderman's notes that pistols under 200 had a one tab center pin and a rod extension which this one does not have. The cylinder produces mild play in full lockup, there is heavy wear around the bolt stops, the nipples are later blued replacements. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance requirements.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None.

Our Assessment: From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remington_Model_1858 “The Remington-Beals Model Revolvers along with subsequent models and variations were percussion revolvers manufactured by Eliphalet Remington & Sons in .31 (Pocket) .36 (Navy) or .44 (Army) caliber, used during the American Civil War, and was the beginning of a successful line of medium and large frame pistols. It is commonly, though inaccurately, referred to as the Model 1858 due to the patent markings on its cylinder, "PATENTED SEPT. 14, 1858/E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, NEW YORK, U.S.A./NEW MODEL."; although wide scale production did not start until 1861.[1] The Remington revolver was a secondary, supplemental issue firearm for the Union Army until the Colt factory fire of 1864. Due to the fire the Colt 1860 Army was not available for some time, subsequently large numbers of the Remington revolver were ordered by the U.S. government. It was more expensive, by "50 cents" (a difference of more than US$12 in 2013 dollars), than the Colt, but those who could afford it remarked on its durability and ability to quickly reload by switching to another pre-loaded cylinder.[citation needed] It saw use in the American West, both in its original percussion configuration and as a metallic cartridge conversion, as well as around the world." This pistol is not martially marked for service in the Navy but definitely looks like it could have been around some water. Made in the early years of the Civil War, it would have probably been sold to a nervous American who was either heading west or dealing with the war, which greatly affected the entire eastern seaboard. This is a RARE early numbered project in the making that should be a great conversation piece. Please see our pictures and good luck.
