Fine Remington NM Police Conversion Revolver
Offered here for sale is a very
nice early post Civil War period Remington
New Model percussion revolver which appears
to have undergone a a factory conversion
from .36 to .38 SHORT CENTERFIRE. Original factory conversions included a conversion cylinder as well as a rear conversion plate. This is lacking the plate. The action is strong and it appears that the "hand" is functioning properly in that when cocked the hand protrudes presumably to engage with the grooves in the rear plate. This revolver
retains most of its original finish on barrel and cylinder
although thinning and turning in part to a very pleasing plum brown patina mixing with blue. The gun also had traces of original case colors which have now faded to a silvery gray mixture. The markings are still very sharp with 1858 patent date and "NEW MODEL" stamped on barrel top flat. Serial number 10024, it has a 5.5" octagon barrel, 5-shot with very nice and sound walnut grips.
Rifling still sharp, no rust anywhere-just a minor ding on cylinder. A very nice transitional Remington revolver which certainly appears to have been well cared for in its day.
