Re: Is This a Remington Revolver ?
There were three basic models of the 1858. The Beals Which had no threads showing whatsoever, no safety notches in the cylinder, a cone shaped front sight and a smaller sail on the loading lever. Last came the 1863 New Model which the modern replica's are based on. Between those two were the transitional models which between 1861 and 1863 had a gradual alteration from the Beals to the New Model. That gun would fall into the transitional model but the serial number is too low to be original. Not widely know are repros that were loosely based on the Beals back in the 60's I think by ASM or maybe Palmetto. I think that's what this one is.
