Review Entries for Day Monday, February 18, 2013

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is not only a useful phrase when cataloguing antiques, but for the film, it is memorable for the final gunfight sequence. The guns of the period were further developments of the revolver made during the American Civil War, by Colt and Remington. Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s Sporting & Collectors Sale of 20th March 2013 at the Dowell Street Saleroom in Honiton, Devon, has a wonderful example of one of these Antique Firearms in their forthcoming sale.

 Remington New Model Army 1858 six shot revolver.

The Remington New Model Army 1858 was an improvement of earlier models with its solid frame and balance. Over 120,000 were sold to the Union Army during the Civil War and it became a favourite of the cap and ball gun six guns of the gunslinger period after the war.

The quick reloading of a cylinder in less than seven seconds along with its reliability meant that even with the introduction of cartridges, many people had their old Remington’s converted for the new ammunition, rather than buy a new gun.

Perhaps the best testament to the Remington was that of William Frederick ‘Buffalo Bill’ Cody who stated ‘…It never failed me’. The example shown here will certainly not fail to attract interest in its original condition and I look forward to another showdown in the saleroom when it comes up for auction.
