After the Civil War, Remington revolutionized firearm ammunition with a cartridge conversion of its Model 1858 Army in 1869. The metallic cartridge-loading revolver was soon bested by Smith & Wesson’s new topbreak model in 1872 and Colt’s Peacemaker in 1873. Two years later E. Remington & Sons came blazing back with the new Model 1875; it was to become one of the most famous guns of the Old West.
The CO2 models have the unmistakable styling evolved from Remington's 1858 Army Model. The Model 1875 loads like a real single action revolver with each BB or pellet cartridge inserted separately into the cylinder chambers through the loading gate on the right side of the frame. (Since the shells are loaded one at a time, speed loaders cannot be used). Once you're fully loaded, this gun is excellent for plinking cans and paper targets in your backyard.
The Remington Model 1875 CO2 revolver pays homage to the old west, and one of the most famous handguns in American history.
