The iconic Remington Model 95 “Double Deringer” was actually introduced as early as 1866, and manufactured continuously until 1935, with some 150,000 specimens leaving the factory. Very little has changed in the design over the years, and collectors mostly have to look at the barrel address to be able to differentiate which era it was made in. There are only two tpes – the Type I early production and the Type I Late production which were made prior to 1898, and are therefore antique in Canada.
This example is the Type I late production, or Model 2, made in about 1868 to 1888. It has the two-line barrel address on top of the barrel. It is profusely engraved in the New York style of the 1870’s, with floral and scroll motifs. The original nickel plating is about 75% intact and the mother-of-pearl grips are very good, with a few small chips missing. The action is accurate, and the firing pin alternates correctly between the two barrels. The bores are dull and moderately pitted. It has seen some use. The hinge is fine, without cracks, and the lock and extractor are as they should be. A rare and very fine example of a high-end deringer made for a gentleman of class.
