Description

The Model 1875 was supposed to compete with Colt's SAA however as late-comers to the game, Remington lacked Colt's standing with the US government and were not successful in negotiating any large contracts. To this day, much mystery surrounds this model, and it is unclear if there were any sales to the US army at all. In 1883, the US Dept. of the Interior purchased some 600 nickel-plated specimens for use by the "Indian Police" on the reservations in the West. No other government sales are known. This rare specimen is in excellent condition, chambered for the .44 Remington center fire cartridge, with an excellent bore, strong, accurate action and lock-up. The nickel plating is 99% intact, and the ivory grips are fine, with a few age-induced stress fractures on the bottom, and a small chip missing around one of the locating pins. The barrel address is sharp and crisp. It is not marked for the caliber, which is consistent with the .44 Remington chambered guns. A very fine Old West gun rarely seen in such excellent condition. 7 1/2 inch barrel, SN 157, rated excellent overall.
