Attic Remington New Model Army Percussion Revolver with Relic Holster

.44 caliber. 8″ octagonal barrel. SN: 26625. Heavily oxidized brown patina, brass triggerguard, two-piece walnut grips. Barrel markings no longer visible, no other external markings visible other than the serial number under the barrel and the sub-inspection “P” on the triggerguard. Missing loading leaver and associated screw, front sight replaced with dovetailed period of use small brass blade. Frame cut for a period added rear sight that is now missing. Lower edge of grips decorated with small iron and brass brads. Includes a well worn period military flap holster with an old replaced belt loop. Mr. Ness’ notes mention that the revolver came from Dennis Darrington who supposedly acquired it Detroit Lakes, MN. His notes as a further reference Volume 4 #3 of the Museum of the Fur Trade Quarterly, but the magazine is not included and is not readily available to investigate the reference. A nice looking, untouched and near relic condition Remington that may be a leftover relic from the forces sent to quell the Sioux uprising in Minnesota during 1862 if the acquisition location is correct.
