I am a handgun collector but along with inheriting them from my father, I also have this Remington's 1858 manufactured in Ilion NY. I see some info on the web but nothing definitive to help me id it. I have included pics and was wondering if someone would have the time to look and possibly id this one. I tried to take pics of the markings. barrel shows 1857 and NJ and the buttplate has US on it.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Thanks for taking the time to look! I told you I had no idea what i was talking about when it comes to longarms...
I am only able to post 4 pics so I need to figure out how to add these additional four. Regards, Jeff
I was watching your auction on this firearm on Gunbroker but missed out on a chance to bid. Will you be relisting it? I am interested in it if you are. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. My name is Chuck, and I'm a collector for over 40 years.
