    Regarding the "Sheriff's model" of the Remington 1858 - were any originals manufactured with a 5.5" bbl?

    According to Flayerman's Guide, the large "1858" Remington's came with the following barrel lengths:
    Remington-Beals Army = 8"
    Remington-Beals Navy = 7 1/2"
    Remington 1861 Army = 8"
    Remington 1861 Navy = 7 3/8"
    Remington New Model Army = 8"
    Remington New Model Navy = 7 3/8"
    The Navy revolvers were slightly smaller than the Army revolvers
    ------------
    The revolvers listed below are all smaller than the New Model Navy shown above.
    Remington New Model Single Action Belt Revolver = 6 1/2"
    Remington-Rider Double Action New Model Belt Revolver = 6 1/2"
    Remington New Model Police Revolver = 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 5 1/2", 6 1/2"
    Remington New Model Pocket Revolver = 3", 3 1/2", 4", 4 1/2"

    Although Remington never made a "Sheriff's model" any good gunsmith could have shortened the barrel and loading lever on a regular sized Army or Navy pistol.
