Remington Zig-Zag Deringer a.k.a. “Zig-Zag Pepperbox”,
Original 1862 Factory Advertising named it “Elliot’s Pocket Revolver ”
.22 Short Caliber Rim Fire, Six Shot Barrel Cluster, Zig-Zag Groves at Breech End


Remington’s first handgun designed for metallic cartridge ammunition, patented by William H. Elliot, one of Remington’s most prolific inventors. Elliot patented this design and contracted Remington to manufacture the handgun for his own compan y Elliot Arms. Remington liked the patent so much that they purchased the patents and became the owner of the design. This example, serial number 33, was almost assuredly made for Elliot Arms. The barrel group measures 3 3/16” in length, ring type trigger, double action with concealed hammer; loads through port in frame at breech; the markings and mechanics are excellent with strong traces of blue remaining in protected areas. We note that there is one small chip at the top of the left grip.
Markings: MANUFACTURED BY REMINGTON’S, ILLION, NY/ ELLIOT’S PATENTS/MAY 29, 1860-OCT,1,1861.
