Remington's pocket-sized, cartridge-firing New Model Revolver was designed by inventor William S. Smoot. The pistol quickly gained popularity among those wanted an easily concealed weapon with reliability. The No. 2 Smoot differs from the original in that it has a straight ejector rod retained by a cross pin rather than the screw-retained, stepped ejector rod found on the No. 1. This revolver features a blade front sight with a rear groove and hard rubber grips. Its grips and metal are in good condition and its bore is in fair condition.
