Re: Is This a Remington Revolver ?
Folks, I am no expert on the 1858 Remington, but, in 1986 or '87, my wife purchased a collectible reproduction of the Remington 1858 New Army revolver in .44 caliber.
Looking at this beautiful reproduction I can see quite a few differences.
A) The loading lever is the wrong shape and length.
B) The hammer has a different configuration.
C) The grip frame has a different shape.
D) The trigger guard is larger and round rather than flat.
E) The front sight is too small and the wrong shape.
The revolver in the OP is an older BP weapon. It appears to be one that has been rebuilt sometime in the past from several different revolvers by a compentent gunsmith or a talented tinkerer. Just from what I can se, I would say that this is not an orginal Remington Model 1858 revolver. As far as its value is concerned, it is worth whatever someone is willing to pay.
