An engraved 1866 Remington Rolling Block, spur trigger, pistol with ivory stocks. A very rare gold & tin plated, deluxe scroll engraved, commercial model. The checkered ivory grips are factory original. The pistol grip is numbered “3” within the grip strap area, and the barrel has three punch marks under the forend piece. The left side of the frame is clearly maker marked with patent dates of 1864 and 1866. There is a Naval style anchor stamped at the top of the barrel, just in front of the frame at the breech end of the barrel. It is believed the production of the 1866 commercial model was less than 500 of the standard model, with only a very few examples, engraved with ivory stocks. The stocks weigh less than the allowed limit for antique gun parts. Note: Flayderman designates this pistol as an 1865 model, but later research has it as an 1866 model.
