FIREARM HISTORY AND FEATURES:
A. Uberti, Srl. is an Italian manufacturer of high quality replicas of 19th century American percussion revolvers, carbines, and rifles as well as cartridge revolvers, single-shot rifles, and lever-action rifles.
These replicas are commonly used by historical re-enactors, participants in action shooting sports such as cowboy action shooting, working ranchers and target shooters who prefer traditional-style firearms.
Thanks to their quality, Uberti replicas are also sought after by collectors and historical firearm enthusiasts.
The Uberti Model 1875 Army (also known as the Uberti 1875 Outlaw) is a replica of the Remington Model 1875 Single Action Army revolver.
It was based upon the successful New Model Army (Remington Model 1858) with both revolvers having the same size, appearance, and the removable cylinder, except that the Model 1858 was a percussion model.
The Model 1875 was Remington’s first metallic cartridge revolver intended to compete against the Colt Peacemaker, but by the time of its introduction Colt had already secured contracts with the U.S. Army, and Remington was forced to seek other markets.
Between 25,000 and 30,000 were manufactured during the years 1875–1889 in three different calibers: .44 Remington Centerfire; .44-40; and .45 caliber.
This particular revolver is chambered for the modern .357 Magnum round, and has a charcoal blued 7.5″ barrel and cylinder, colour case hardened frame, brass trigger guard and Walnut grips.
This gun is in fair used condition. It is mechanically sound and functional.
There is light wear to the finish along both sides of the the length of the barrel, as well as on the edges and sides of the cylinder, the top strap and front and back of the grip.
The wooden grips have some light dents and scratches in them.
N.B. There is a very slight ring inside the barrel, but no exterior bulge. While this would certainly effect the strength and longevity of the barrel to a degree, I feel that this revolver would still be perfectly safe to use, particularly with lower power rounds like .38 Special.
The firearm is suitable to be used for:
- COWBOY ACTION SHOOTING
This revolver has been dubbed the Uberti 1875 Outlaw as the original Remington 1875 Single Action Army was used by the famous American frontier outlaws, Frank and Jesse James.
