RARE Antique Remington-Beals 3rd Model Percussion POCKET REVOLVER
1 of 1,000! c1859 Manufacture!
Here we present a rare Remington-Beals Third Model percussion revolver, manufactured circa 1859-1860 at the Remington Armory in Ilion, New York. Fordyce Beals (1807-1870) was a firearms engineer who worked both for the Whitneyville Armory and then the Remington Armory in the mid-1850s. During his time at Remington, he developed what would become the Remington-Beals 1st Model, a 5-shot pocket revolver which appeared in mid-1856. Though this design allowed Remington to break into the civilian gun market, it was more prominent as a revolver that saw service with both sides of the American Civil War. The gun’s design is typical of the period. The grip is integral and covered in wood for comfort, and the solid frame added robustness to the design. Its compact dimensions were respectable, especially with discerning buyers seeking concealment for their firearms. There were approximately 1000 of these handy little pocket revolvers manufactured over the two-year production run.
The overall condition is good. Blue finish with plum patina throughout. The action functions, although the cylinder does not index properly. The bore is in good shape with nice rifling. Both grips are solid. A rare Remington for your collection!
