This is a fantastic gun! This is the style of gun that is listed and described by Flayderman on page 171 of the 9th Edition of his gun guide. He tells of how only approximately 1,000 guns of this style were made in 1888-1889. These six shot guns fore a metallic cartridge of .44-40 caliber. Flayderman tells of how these were sold by the famous New York firm of Schuyler, Hartley & Graham. They were one of the highest quality retailers of the middle 1800's. They illustrate the gun in their 1889 catalog. This one has the serial number of 131 under the grip. The Side of the triggerguard has the "44" stamping for the caliber designation. The barrel is full-length at 5-3/4th inches. Across the top it proudly reads "E. REMINGTON & SONS, ILION, N.Y. U.S.A." Underneath the barrel it has the original ejector rod intact and functional. They produced these guns in blue finish and also in nickel. This one is finished in nickel and it retains almost all of the original factory finish. The mechanics of the gun still work crisply on all positions. In addition to the fine condition of this gun is that it has the original 2-piece ivory grips intact. The Schuyler firm could have sold high quality weapons in any configuration and these grips would have been an expensive option at the time. The ivory has a pleasing milky tone to the material. This is a fantastic gun from all angles.
