There is one thing about the Remington that always bothered me. People say the 1875 Remington was a rip off/copy of the 1873 Colt. The 1875 Remington looked VERY much like the 1863 Remington percussion revolver. Both had a solid frame with a screwed in barrel and a grip that was part of the frame. The Colts available in 1863 were open tops with the barrel held on by a wedge pin and a screwed on grip frame. I've never understood how Remington copied Colt.
