Remington Rider Double Action question.
Just when you thunk you knew it all something new (or old in this case) comes along. On Gunbroker is a auction for a double action Remington Rider handgun from @1860. This revolver was a large frame, 7 1/2" barreled, handgun very similiar to the civil war 1858 Remingtons. I was unaware of Remington making a double action large frame handgun. Can anyone give a brief history on this revolver? Early Colt double action revolvers were weak and easily broken. The Remington 1858's had an excellent reputation for durability. How dependable were these double action Remingtons? Would appreciate any education I can get.
