I think RJay meant 1863-1873. They were made only in .36 (percussion) but later ones were converted at the factory to the old .38 Long Rimfire, using the typical two-piece cylinder. Unlike most Colt conversions, Remington left the loading levers intact allowing conversion back. They have a pretty hard DA pull, which might account for the lack of popularity.
