The early Remingtons have a thin, 2½ inch-high lever with a slightly bulbous top which pulls forward.

The second Torpedo Modell 14-Mead has a ½ inch lever with a small thumb indent which pushes backwards.

It also has a different style of shift-lock key and colour selector switch, and in some cases a tab key.

The first Good Companion has a swivel-jointed lever with a distinct upper curve – it also pushes inwards.

This very same model also appeared as the Regent, a Torpedo export tradename.
