Remington New Model Army Conversion Revolver

.44 CF, 8" barrel, S/N 79388. Blued finish, brass triggerguard, walnut grips. Matching numbers on barrel and frame under grip. Grips mismatched, no other numbers present. Standard one-line barrel address, some sub-inspection marks present. Right grip with clear OWA Ainsworth cartouche. The alteration does not appear to be factory work, as no ejector rod has been installed and the capping cut-out has not been enlarged to allow loading and unloading. This means the cylinder must be removed to load and unload the revolver. Overall a nice example of a post-war cartridge alteration of a US military Civil War period Remington New Model Army revolver.

Condition:

Very good. Retains some strong traces of blued finish, mostly in protected areas, the balance a moderately oxidized brownish gray patina. Barrel address light, mechanically functional, very good bore with scattered light pitting. Grips with bumps, dings and mars, not numbered to this gun.

Estimate: $1,500 - $2,500
