Remington New Model Army, .44 Percussion 
About 122,000 New Model Armies were made between 1863 and 1875, with more than 100,000 having gone to the Union Army. The New Model Army was one of the most-used handguns of the Civil War, and the strongest competitor to Colt. It was also the last of Remington's big .44 percussion revolvers. William "Buffalo Bill" Cody apparently carried a NMA for his hunting of buffalos and during the Indian Wars, and he claimed that "It never failed me". This one is in excellent condition, possibly never having been fired. It has the best bore I have ever seen on an old gun like this, it is a 10 out of 10. The blueing on the cylinder and frame is about 30%, the rest is a mix of blue and brown patina. Excellent, untouched grips with a sharp inspection cartouche (GP for Giles Porter, a principal sub-inspector for the Ordnance Department), and a few shallow handling marks. The letter "W" is stamped on the trigger guard, frame and barrel. Sharp markings, matching serial numbers on the frame, barrel and cylinder, also marked in pencil on the inside of the grips. Excellent, crisp action, impeccable timing and lock-up, 8-inch barrel. SN 54022, rated excellent overall.
