Uberti 1875 Remington "Frontier" model

Do the Uberti 1875's have safety notches to rest the hammer between the cartridges, like a ROA or a 1858 Remington cap-n-ball revolver? I'm not even sure there's enough room between the case heads that it's possible when chambered for .45 Colt.

Or maybe the 1/4-cock notch on the sear is drop safe?

The cylinder is made just like a 1873 colt. No notches between the chambers. There is a "safety" notch (first click) but like the colt type guns, if you count on that to keep you safe, well lets just say good luck. If you have to carry six rounds in the gun, put the firing pin between the case rims, otherwise carry five with the hammer on the empty chamber.

I second what MJN77 said. I have a 1978 vintage Remington M-1875, for all practical purposes it's a Colt clone.
