***This item is not in stock at this time, however we have choosen to leave some listing online so researchers, customers and others can see examples of these more rare guns.
This miniature Remington Model 1865 Rolling Block Pistol, serial number 5, was manufactured by Tom Weston of Mexico City, Mexico. This pistol is 6.5" OAL, with a 4 inch round barrel that is hand blued, which contrasts nicely with the real Ivory grips. It comes with a matching 6.5" cleaning rod that is also hand blued, and has a matching Ivory grip, as well. The pistol is marked with the standard two line address/patent dates on the left side of the frame and marked with the anchor on the top of the barrel at the breech. The pistol is finished in high polished bright blue and the forearm and one-piece grip are smooth ivory. The pistol is complete in a red leather lined fancy wooden case with contrasting wood inlay design on the lid. "REMINGTONS/ILION, N.Y. U. S. A." is embossed on the inside of the lid and there is a small "WESTON/MEXICO. D.F." tag on the bottom of the case. The case has 17 brass "cartridge" holders and a blue cleaning rod with an ivory handle. The interior has a glass cover over the gun.
Excellent. The pistol retains 98% blue finish with a small area of thinning on the back strap and barrel. The ivory is very good with a few minor age cracks and the right side is aging to a mellow patina. The case is excellent with only light handling marks.
At $7,500 this rare 6.5" Tom Weston scaled down version of the 1865 Navy Remington Rolling Block Pistol would be a gem in any collectors case, so our $5,795.90 Price is a steal. I have NEVER seen another one of these in my life, and maybe a handful of big time collectors have ever seen this gun up close. You really need to see this up close to really appreciate this gun in all of it's glory. The brass cartridge holder will hold .22 shorts, and they will fit the chamber, however I think this gun is made for maybe a .22 rimfire blank, which does seat nicely in the chamber.
