Description:

While limited in production to only approximately 25,000-30,000 revolvers between 1875-1889, many of these "Improved Army" or "Frontier Army" revolvers saw hard use in the hands of Native Americans, settlers, and lawmen in the West. The Model 1875 was Remington's answer to the Colt Single Action Army and is a solid firearm with fewer main components than Colt's revolver, but it simply suffered in the famous "Peacemaker's" shadow. "E. REMINGTON & SONS. ILION.N.Y. U.S.A." marked on top of the barrel. The serial number "873" is marked on the left of the grip frame. Cylinder is unmarked. "2306" marked on the back of the loading gate.

Rating Definition:

Fine, retains 40% plus original blue finish with scattered flaking and smooth brown patina/light pitting on the balance, 50% plus original case colors on the hammer and loading gate, and sharp markings and edges in the metal overall. The top of the rear grip strap has evidence of a filled hole with file marks visible around the plug. Grips are also fine with some light scratches and handling marks, a moderately worn section on the bottom right edge, and light wear on the bottom left edge. Mechanically excellent.
