Here is the listing from the Lamberson, Furman & Co. 1887 catalog. They were the sole agents for E. Remington & Sons. This is the Centerfire Pistol listing.

There are several listing here that I have questions about.
It lists the following centerfire cartridges as Pistol, but I do not think any of them are.:
.32 Extra Long Centerfire
.32 Remington ( I think this refers to the .32-30 Rem)
.32 S&W Rifle
.44 Evens (Old model)
.44 Evens (New Model)
.44 Colt, Magazine (Is this for the Colt Rifle?)
I do not know a lot about guns. Has anyone ever seen or heard of any PISTOLS chambered for any of the above. If so, what models.
I surmise that all these are rifle only cartridges despite them being listed as Pistol rounds. I think what may have happened is that when either a type-setter or ad writer, neither of which knew much about ammunition, was making up the catalog, they included all of these under “Pistol” because of the FORM of the name. In the same catalog ALL the Sporting and Military cartridges are listed in the form .32-40 Win., .40-70 Sharps, .45-120 Sharps, etc. Note that all of the so called “Pistol” rounds above are just the caliber without a powder charge number. So they most likely thought that since they are like the .45 Colt and .44 Bull Dog in style, they “Must be Pistol cartridges”.
