TRANSITIONAL Antique REMINGTON CARTRIDGE CONVERSION New Model NAVY
Remington New Model Navy Revolver in .38 Long
Here we present an antique U.S. Remington New Model Navy Cartridge Conversion Revolver, made circa 1863 to 1878 in Ilion, New York. About 28,000 New Model Navy revolvers were made, some of them leaving the Remington factory in this configuration. This revolver has been converted from percussion to utilize .38 Long cartridges, making these very desirable in the budding metallic cartridge revolver market. Smith & Wesson’s infamous Rollin White Patent was just expiring. The US Navy even experimented with a small contract of these revolvers in this configuration, with a loading gate and ejector rod built in. These Navy models were fitted with hinged and latched loading gates, and nearly all came with ejector assemblies. These revolvers sold for a whopping $9.00.
The overall condition is very good. Robust, tight action. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Good grips with expected wear. Grey patina throughout. Here is a very scarce and desirable factory cartridge conversion of Remington’s New Model Navy. A very neat transitional percussion to metallic cartridge revolver!
