    Very good! it's also appealing. I'd love to handle and shoot one of those Remington single action revolvers. Don't believe I've ever even picked one up before. Do you know when it shipped?

    Great piece of history there.

    Unfortunately, Remington's serial numbering system was lacking. This one supposedly was a trials model for the US Army, but I haven't pursued the info yet.

    So, just guessing, it could be a .45 model rather than the more common .44-40 they produced.

    It appears to be pre-.44-40, given the lack of markings. I posted it on the Remington Society forum in hopes of more specific info. When my late father acquired it years ago, the tag said ".44 cal. ser#**, US Army Exp. Mod. Quartermaster Proof Marks, Thick trigger guard".

    Possibly it's chambered in .44 Remington?

    That is what I believe at this point. My post on the Remington board seems to be awaiting moderation. I'll keep you posted.

    Thanks Mike, be interesting to hear their thoughts. As early as it is, I'd bet it is in .44 Remington Centerfire.

    1875 values?

    I just saw a replica 1875 remington .357 well engraved and shiny like silver or polished stainless for sale but it was a bit pricy. What are the (used) replicas going for?
