Antique REMINGTON Model 1875 Single Action ARMY
JESSE and FRANK JAMES Revolver of Choice!
Here we present an antique Remington Model 1875 Single Action Army Revolver, made in Ilion, New York circa 1875. The Model 1875 followed the form of the successful Model 1858 which saw widespread use and acceptance during the American Civil War. It kept the 1858’s use of a solid frame and the triangular shape of the loading lever translated to the cartridge revolver’s ejector rod housing. Meanwhile, it borrowed the loading gate and single ejector rod from Colt. The 1875 was specifically developed around the use of metallic cartridge ammunition. It was supposed to be Remington’s answer to the hugely popular Colt .45 Single Action Army Revolver, also known as the “Peacemaker” and represented Remington’s first dive into the metallic cartridge revolver market.
The Model 1875 was actually pretty late to the game by some two full years as the Colt Peacemaker had already found favor with the US Government through Army bound contracts. Because of this, production totals reached only around 25,000 to 30,000 revolvers with a manufacturing period ranging from 1875 into 1889. Frank and Jesse James both owned and used Model 1875s, at least two of which still exist. Frank’s No. 5116 and Jesse’s No. 559. These were also purchased by The US Department of the Interior for issue to Indian Police on the reservations and the Mexican government purchased a number themselves.
The overall condition is very good plus. The nickel finish is about 40%. The markings are clear. The numbers on the trigger guard and grip frame match. The ejector rod housing is a replacement. The hard rubber grips are in good shape. The bore is in very good condition with nice rifling. The action remains strong.
