R2184 REMINGTON LEE SPORTING RIFLE
Item # R2184
M-1899 Sporting rifle. This would not be the first time nor would it be the last time that Remington took a military rifle and made a very good sporting variation of it. The Remington Lee was a very good bolt action rifle with detachable magazine. It was good for military and also great for sporting use. This one is in 7x57 cal with most blue remaining. There is areas of light pitting. Appears to have been cleaned and possibly touched up with some cold blue. Overall appearance is good as is the appearance of the bore. This is the sporting stock with the checkered pistol grip and the Schnabel black insert. A unique idea is the buttplate which is very thick at the toe and heel providing protection in those areas. Wood is overall cond. Repair coming off the back of the frame underneath the bolt. Repair is solid. Comes with the orig magazine which is not always easy to find.
Modern $ 1,875.
R2185 REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY

Action feels and sounds good.

R202 REMINGTON MODEL 1890 SINGLE ACTION REVOLVER IN 44-40
Item # R202-26-743

Mostly a medium brown patina gun with a little bit of blue in protected areas, action is good, bore is VG. Appears like there's a little bit of work on the ejection housing-it must have come loose at one time. Wooden grips are in good cond. Decent old gun with a very low SN.

R2175 RARE REMINGTON 1890 ARMY REVOLVER
Item # R2175
The 1890 Single Action Army Remington was their last gasp at competing with Colt for the single action market. They had some success with their 1875 but Colt was running away with the game. Not very many 1890 Remingtons were made. Only about 2,000. They are in the very desirable 44-40 cartridge. This one has a 7-1/2” bbl. Not only is this gun rare but it also has 60%+ blue remaining on the bbl. Beautiful deep blue in protected areas. Frame has aged to a very pleasing antique brown/grey color. Nice color also on the cylinder. Grips are excellent as is the bore. Very nice markings. Everything about this revolver is nice. A very good collector piece!
Antique $ 7,775.
R2174 SCARCE REMINGTON 25R CARBINE

Mostly in the slide area. Nearly all blue in the receiver and bbl. Equipped with a Lyman peep sight mounted to the original mounting holes. VG condition wood with no cracks or losses.

Item # MSG653 -25-406

Annie had just resigned from their payroll and no longer officially connected to the company. She turned in her guns and the sales manager asked if I would like a couple of Annie's guns." They list the guns by serial number and apparently Mr. Hession worked for Remington for several years before going over to Winchester. Serial number of this gun is 65648. There are also some hang tags that are definitely old and list this as Annie Oakley's gun that she used in her exhibitions all around the world. Interesting letters complete with the envelopes.

R1153 SERIAL NUMBER 2 REMINGTON MODEL 51 SEMI AUTOMATIC PISTOL
Item # R1153-26-728
Undoubtedly the lowest serial number known in private hands. Originally in Robert Peterson's collection for a length of time. Approximately 50 years ago he gave it to a good friend of his who happened to be Keith Coulter. He had it in his collection for about 45-50 years I understand. This is the first time it has been offered for public sale. It is a 380 cal. Overall gun is in surprisingly fine condition with about 95% original blue with light traces of high point wear on the corners. Completely unaltered. Excellent condition throughout. It has early features that didn't come on later guns. Rare opportunity to purchase a low serial number Remington. Remington did not make many of these and to have serial #2 would be a great plus for ANY collection, especially a Remington collection.
Modern $ 12,500.

THE FINEST DOUBLE CASED SET OF REMINGTON NEW MODEL ARMY PERCUSSION ENGRAVED PISTOLS IN EXISTENCE
Item # R7777-24-569
This set comes from my own personal collection. Both guns are very elaborately engraved with some of the most spectacular engraving I have ever seen on a Remington. Coverage is at least 95% of all metal. Both guns are fitted with relief carved Goddess of Liberty ivory grips of which bear the writing Ribus Unum" on the bottom. The guns are fitted to an absolutely spectacular French style original Remington casing in excellent condition with a slightly faded red velour lining. The exterior is Mahogany with a presentation plaque on top. Just a few very minor dings and mars. Also accompanying the set is a correct brass flask, two casting molds, an L shaped nipple wrench and a box of percussion caps. Condition of the guns is Excellent+ with a considerable amount of original silver finish and gold gilding which is toning slightly. Still crisp and sharp metal with excellent markings. All engraving is very legible. The guns were made as a pair most likely for presentation reasons. The serial numbers are 5 and 226. These guns were alleged to have been presented to General Richard I Dodge. They are pictured in Charley Worman's Firearms of the American West book; manufactured approximately 1863. Absolutely an outstanding pair of guns and probably the finest double cased set of Remingtons known!

R1083 SERIAL NUMBER 7 REMINGTON HEPBURN DOUBLE BARREL M SHOTGUN
Item # R1083-26-452
I believe this to be an experimental or prototype. I have never seen or heard of another one like it. Marked on the watertable is simply "L L Hepburn December 18th 1883". Original 32" bbls with excellent pattern of Damascus retained on the outside. Shiny bores. I believe the buttstock is a replacement or a heavily sanded original. It is not undersized but the checkering is gone. Forearm is in fine condition with nice checkering. Case colored receiver is clean, sharp and in excellent condition with 30-40% original case colors showing. Very interesting, good looking gun. Very similar to the Hepburn single shot rifle with the breach opening lever on the side.
