Little is known as to the reason for its manufacture and its demise while contemplated as possibly just unpopular for its discontinuation it can most assuredly be attributed in some part to Remington’s shift in priorities due to the start of the civil war.

I find the design of this little pistol very appealing.

    Interestingly, since they rely on only the percussion cap for propulsion, these are classified as “non-firearms” in Canada and require no license to own and possess. On the other hand, reproductions cost $180 CAD.

  • Yes, Italian Davide Pedersoli makes excellent replica of this little pistol, sold as indoor practice gun.
