1875 Remington Revolver

Caliber: .44-40 caliber

Barrel length: 7 ½"

Built to compete with the 1873 Colt, the 1875 was Remington's first metallic cartridge revolver. It kept the overall appearance of the 1858 Remington making it heavier than a Colt but sturdier as well. Like other revolvers, it was a six shot single action. This pistol was loaded through a loading gate in the rear and each round had to be extracted one at a time using the ejecting rod. Frank James was known to carry an 1875 Remington.
