Remington Beal’s Type III 1858 Navy Ser # 4929
Appendix C of Donald L. Ware’s “Remington Army and Navy Revolvers 1861 – 1888” estimates that this revolver was manufactured in November 1861
According to Ware, Beal’s Navy models were manufactured from April 1861 to June 1862, and about 15,000 were made. Ware (pg 27) estimates that "over thirteen thousand were purchased by the army, navy or state militias" - there are no martial markings on this revolver, but it still could have been one of the 13,000
Barrel address is correct but appears to have been enhanced with hand engraving device
BEALS’ PATENT SEPT. 14 1858
MANUFACTURED BY REMINGTONS ILION. N.Y.
Cone front sight
Matching serial numbers on the bottom of the barrel, on the frame inside the left grip, and on the bottom of the tab of the trigger guard
7.5” octagon barrel – Bore has strong rifling with light to moderate pitting – on 1 to 10 scale, my opinion is 6/7
Barrel threads entirely concealed by frame
Late Beal’s cylinder (Ware page 57 fig. 40)
No safety notches between nipples
Ram lever has small web
Ram must be lowered to withdraw arbor pin
Grips are excellent, but may have been refinished or replaced
Original trigger was repaired, because the hammer would not hold half cock. Hammer now holds half cock and full cock, and the action locks up tight and indexes properly.
I removed the low quality rebluing and the gun is now bare metal on all surfaces
Payment for sales in the United States shall be made exclusively by cashier's check or money order. Payments must be received by me within seven days of our agreement to sell an antique firearm. I will tell you by phone or email the date on which the seven day period begins and the date by which I must receive payment from you.
Usually, I will ship antique firearms by USPS Priority Mail, and I will provide the tracking number to buyers by email. However, if there is an alternative shipper you prefer, please discuss it with me by phone or email.
Buyers will pay me for actual shipping costs, including the cost of the box, postage, and insurance. I will provide an estimate for those costs and refund any overage.
Buyers have a five-day inspection period, starting from the delivery date shown by the shipper’s tracking information. During the five days, buyers may return an antique firearm and receive a refund. Returned antique firearms must be received by me within 10 days of the date on which the buyer received it by the same shipper I used, and buyers shall pay all of the costs for packing and shipping, including insurance. Antique firearms must be returned in the same condition they were in when received by the buyer. During the five-day inspection period or during the return process, buyers shall not disassemble or fire antique firearms without my prior consent. Disassembly or firing of antique firearms voids the five-day return option.
Buyers are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws of the US and their state and local government entities with respect to the purchase, possession, ownership, storage, and transfer of antique firearms. I will not sell or ship antique firearms to people located in California, Florida, New Jersey, Hawaii, or Washington DC.
Buyers must be 21 years old or older. Buyers must inform me if they are prohibited from owning firearms by any government entity. By concluding a sale with me, buyers represent and warrant to me that they are allowed by law to legally purchase and possess firearms. Sales with people not allowed to purchase or possess firearms shall not be completed, and any payments received by me from such buyers shall be refunded, minus a $50 processing fee.
I transfer antique firearms to buyers as collector antique firearms only. I have not fired any of the transferred antique firearms, and buyers must have all antique firearms inspected by competent gunsmiths before firing antique firearms. I am not responsible for any bodily injuries, deaths, or property damage caused by antique firearms that are fired, and buyers agree and shall indemnify and hold me harmless from and against any and all actions, claims, causes of action, demands of any sort, including payment of all of the my attorneys fees and costs, and payment of any and all judgments, awards, decisions, or payments of any type of kind ordered by any court, government entity, or agency of competent jurisdiction to by paid by me to any and all claimants, including buyer. Buyers further agree and release me from any and all liability, criminal or civil, arising from the buyer's purchase and/or use of the antique firearm.
All antique firearms are sold as is with no warranty or guarantees, implied, expressed, or otherwise. Buyers are solely responsible for determining the safety of antique firearms purchased.
I am not set up to sell and transfer antique firearms to purchasers outside of the United States. I will prepare for such sales, which I hope will be possible later this year. If a buyer located outside of the United States wants to purchase an antique firearm from me, please call or email me, and we will discuss whether and how to complete such a sale.
I truly enjoy collecting, examining, and discussing antique firearms, especially weapons from the civil and indian war periods. It is my hope that the people I deal with share that joy. I want the people who purchase my antique firearms to be pleased with their purchases and take pleasure in owning fine arms.
