Somehow I thought that coming to this Remington Forum that I would get some info on this Remington-Rider revolver.
Is this a rare revolver or just a very sleepy Forum?

First off, welcome to the forum, David!
Most of us here, myself included, own reproductions rather than originals and primarily, that's what we know. Hawg probably knows as much (or more) than anyone here, and a number of our European friends  (curiously enough) know quite a bit as ell, not being able to purchase repros without a lot of hassle. Hang tight...I'm sure someone will be able to answer your questions!

Thanks Captainkirk.

Is Roy Marcot still involved with the Remington Society?
If so, I would like to know how to get in touch with him regarding a Colt Brevete Dragoon.
He wrote the book on these guns and I have some questions.

The Rider itself is not a rare pistol. The fluted ones with three digit or under serial numbers were made from 1863-1865 and are scarce. Even tho they are war dated and some may have seen service none were purchased by the war dept.

In my research I was very surprised to find the reference to cased Remington Rider D/A belt revolvers in Edwards Civil War Guns book published in 1982.

In my search I have never seen a cased example.
If anyone knows of one please let me know.
