RJT#5785 -


Over the years some Civil War and Old West re-enactors and collectors have had their reproduction six-guns and rifles "defarbed" to make them look and feeling more like the antique originals revolvers they see around the collector shows. They know they will never be able to own one of the those great guns that cost $4000.00, $5000.00 and up from there!!!  Sometimes “defarbing” can make that ownership possible. At least they can own a very close representation of one, and it still remains a firearm they can shoot and display without endangering the value of a great old antique. At my age of 81 years I have made it my business to collect up many such guns and am now offering this one for someone who would like to own this WORK OF ART at an affordable price. Details of this shooter are: .36 caliber with correct markings.
On the barrel the top line reads "PATENTED SEPT. 14 . 1858" On the middle line "E. REMINGTON & SONS . ILION. NEW YORK. U.S.A. "and on the bottom line "NEW MODEL". On the frame, barrel and loading lever you will find inspectors marks just like on the old originals.  The serial number on the barrel, and under the grip. An excellent metal aging and antique patina has been added on all metal parts. It has also had the grips  aged to match the metal. What a really great gift and conversation starter this would make on any mantel piece or desk.
