Exceptionally fine scarce non-engraved Remington rider magazine pistol with case. 32 XSRF, 3 1/8" part octagon barrel, nickel finish and rosewood grip. Manufactured in the 1870s and 1880s based on designs by Joseph Rider. Interestingly, more of these were engraved than were left plain such as this example. The design was clearly influenced by the popular Winchester rifles of the period and their predecessors. The Riders are among the earliest magazine fed pistols. The pistol takes up basically the same amount of pocket space as Remington's famous double derringer but allowed for five shots instead of two. It has the standard two-line address and patent dates on top of the barrel and standard features. Includes a hardwood case and seven "U" head stamped cartridges. Provenance: Ex Milan J. Turk Collection.
Exceptionally fine, retains 97% of the original nickel finish with some scattered light handling marks and a few spots of very light flaking. The grips are very fine with a few scattered minor dings and otherwise light handling marks. Mechanically excellent. The relined custom case is very good with minimal handling/storage evidence.
