Remington New Model Army Revolver

"REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY PERCUSSION REVOLVER. SN 69765. Cal. 44. Usual configuration with 8" oct bbl, pinched post front sight with usual bbl markings. It has a brass trigger guard and 2-pc walnut grips with sharp, clear cartouche on left side and are pencil numbered to revolver. There are small inspector initials on various parts. These Remington revolvers were well favored by the Union during the Civil War and afterward with the Cavalry on the frontier. A trooper could carry one or two spare cylinders and reload very quickly vs. slow reloading of Colt percussion revolvers. Therefore they were in use more for longer periods of time and are rarely found in good condition. CONDITION: Extremely fine plus.  Overall retains 95-97% strong, glossy, orig blue with slight muzzle & sharp edge wear with some light thinning on grip straps.  Web of rammer handle has flaked to a dull blue patina.  Trigger guard is a fine medium mustard patina & cylinder retains about 90% strong orig blue.  Grips are as new with faint edge wear and retain virtually all of their orig factory varnish.  Mechanics are crisp, strong bright bore with scattered moderate pitting
