Remington Model 1888

Here's a rare single action that is rarely seen, a Model 1888 Remington Revolver in 44 WCF with a 5 1/2" barrel. Its estimated that Remington produced 25,000 Model 1875's and 2,000 Model 1890's. However, production of the Model 1888 (1888-89) totaled less than 1000 examples making this one of the scarcest Remington pistols out there. While the Model 1888 has the same wood style grips as the Model 1875 Remington, it also closely resembles the Model 1890 in both the shorter barrel length and the lack of the barrel web. In fact, given its similarities to both models, these are often referred to as the Model 1888 "Transition" revolver. Remington collectors had known of this model for about the past 50 years but had never been able to verify its sale to the public until recent years when someone discovered an 1889 Vintage Hartley and Graham Catalog featuring the gun. See Gun Report article by F. Kohler and Don War...Vol. 38, No. 1, June, 1992.
