These inventive little pistols are uncommon and have only three moving parts…the spur
trigger, main spring, and combination hammer and breechblock. The top of the barrel is
marked with the two line address and patent information, “REMINGTONS ILION.N.Y. /
ELLIOT.PAT. AUG.27.1867.” The serial number is marked on the bottom of the barrel
and front of the frame. Ebony colored hardwood grips are likely walnut.
