c1875 REMINGTON SMOOT Revolver No. 1 .30 cal Ilion, New York Scarce Antique
One of Only 3,000 New Model No. 1 Pocket Revolvers
Here we present an antique Remington-Smoot New Model No. 1 Pocket Revolver, made circa 1875 in Ilion, New York. Only about 3,000 of these are estimated to have been produced during its production run from 1875 through 1877, making this one quite scarce. This revolver was designed with the armed public in mind, being pocket-sized and holding 5 shots of .30 Caliber Rimfire.
This revolver was part of a line of small handguns that was contemporaneous with Colt’s “New Line” revolver. Both these companies made a quality revolver, but quality costs. As a result, many small makers began producing much less expensive alternatives that would lovingly become known as “Suicide Specials”. In many cases, these little revolvers did the job, but competition shut down these lines earlier than they may have otherwise. The firearm pre-dates the purchase of the Remington Family Owned E. Remington & Sons company to Marcellus Harley of Hartley and Graham of New York City, a major sporting goods chain who also owned the Union Metallic Cartridge Company and the Winchester Repeating Arms Company.
