My Pietta "Shooters Model" Pietta Remington has a dove tailed front sight, all my other models do not. I really like the feel of a Remington in my hand and prefer shooting it to any other black powder revolvers that I own including 2nd Gen and Signatures Series Colt 1860 Armys, an 1851 Colt Navy, and a 2nd Gen 1862 Colt Police, though I will admit the 1860 Colt is a natural pointer.

Historically, due to the its solid frame and ease of conversion, the first large caliber cartridge revolver ever made was a converted 1863 model Remington (we call 'em 1858s) in .46 cal. made in 1869.
