EXCELLENT AND RARE REMINGTON U.S. ARMY ISSUED MODEL 1871 .50 CALIBER CENTER FIRE ROLLING BLOCK PISTOL. Approximately 6,000 of these handsome pistols were made in the 1870s with 1,000 sold on the civilian market and 5,000 issued the U.S. Government. This is one of the latter and shows a fine “CRS” in a rectangle cartouche on the left bottom grip- these almost always worn away. This example shows vivid case colors on the left side of the frame with the right side case colors still very apparent but faded darker, there is bright case color on the protected areas around the hammer, upper sides of the frame/trigger guard etc. Even the grip straps show some fading case color. Fine walnut grips without the usual dings on the butt that most seem to have from using it as a tack hammer! (Almost all of these I’ve seen have this). There is a number “53” stamped in the upper left grip side which was probably a rack or unit number. Excellent screws, MINT BORE, tight action, the hammer and breech block were finished “bright and in the white” and this example still retains the bright look with minimal spotting or staining. Exc. markings including the P and S inspector stamps on the side of the frame along with the Remington markings. These historical arms are quite scarce and this is one of the better ones I’ve seen in a long time.
