REMINGTON-ELLIOT Antique “PEPPERBOX” .32 Caliber Rimfire Deringer PISTOL
4-Shot Ring Trigger Deringer Type Pistol!
Here we present an antique Remington-Elliot .32 Caliber Pepperbox Pistol, made circa the 1870s in Ilion, New York. Manufactured from 1863 to 1888, this is a four shot, .32 caliber ring trigger pistol using a cluster of stationary barrels and a revolving firing pin, similar in concept to the Sharps Pepperboxes. German silver blade front and frame notched rear sights.
This pepperbox is functionally double action only, with the concealed hammer operated entirely by the motion of the ring trigger. The grip section is contoured so the butt rests on the ring finger. This repeating design was able to utilize the new rimfire ammunition like Smith & Wesson, without infringing on Smith & Wesson’s Rollin White Patent for bored through chambers on a revolver’s cylinder. They made very nice, easy to use and compact firearms for 19th century conceal and carry.
The overall condition is near fine. Original blue and silver finish. The numbers match. The trigger moves back and forth but the piece that interfaces with the hammer does not push the hammer down. It seems that all pieces are present but there is something just out of spec. The bores are partially reflective with strong rifling but also a bit pitted in spots. The grips are in nice shape. A very handsome Remington pepperbox.
