    Greetings from upstate NY...I was recently asked to catalog and clean a series of handguns for a colleague who knows nothing about firearms. I am no expert, but I think I have, in my possession, an original Remington NAVY. Army? Could this be?

    The details are as follows:

    Top of octagonal barrel is stamped
    Beals' Patent Sept, 14, 1858
    Manufactured by Remingtons' Ilion, NY
    BBL = 7 3/8" (measured from muzzle to front of cylinder)
    There are no caliber or serial numbers on this firearm with the exception of a letter "K" on the grip frame and the number "761", both located on the left side
    It is obviously a blackpowder and percussion
    6-shot revolver
    Wooden pistol grips (walnut I believe)
    trigger guard appears to be brass
    front blade sight and rear notch sight along entire top of frame

    All three serial numbers match (#761), underside of barrel, grip, and trigger guard.

    Any information would be greatly appreciated
