I am in Canada.
I am going to be looking at a fluted cylinder Remington Ryder revolver.
I know about 58 Remingtons...I don't know about Remington Ryders.

I collect CW stuff and I wonder if this would fit in?

The fellow that has access to the Ryder takes good photos....what do I look for in terms of markings.

If it is a fluted Ryder in what serial number range should it be in to be considered a CW gun?

Thanks,

David

Need pictures to see what you are looking at???   Remington Rider was a pocket model made between 1860 - 1888. No fluted cylinder models that I know of...Jim

If it is/was a percussion model with a fluted cylinder and a three digit serial number it was made between 1863-1865 and considered Civil War production. They made something like 10,000 of them between 1863-1873. BTW its Rider not Ryder. Ryder is a single shot pocket pistol.

Thanks Hawg.

I am waiting for photos.

It is my understanding that it is like the examble shown above in your nice photo.

Early 3 digit serial number percussion revolver apparently in very nice condition.

I will post photos when I receive them.

After I posted my question on the Forum I found some photos in one of my books.

I received some photos.
The cylinder SN does not match the barrel SN ....did this happen often with Remington?
Any idea of what a gun like this is worth...ballpark?

Based on what Robert Reilly says in his book….the cylinder would not be serial numbered…..only the underside of the barrel and under the left grip at the strap.

The number on the cylinder is probably an assembly number. I saw where one sold at auction 4 years ago for 1,500. I would say that's probably a decent ballpark figure for today's market.

A later variation of the Remington Rider D/A revolver in the 3,000 serial number range without the fluted cylinder and with a different front sight.
