Keeping the solid frame and overall styling of their 1858 percussion revolver, Remington jumped into the cartridge pistol market in 1875 to compete directly against the Colt “Peacemaker.” Outlaws and Old West lawmen alike recognized the sturdy quality of the new Remington; even Frank James carried one for much of his outlaw career. As faithful reproductions, the 1875 Outlaw and Frontier are both available in Frank’s favorite caliber .45 Colt.
Built from 1890 to 1896 in very small numbers, the Remington 1890 Police is one of the most prized cowboy revolvers among Old West collectors. Of the less than 2,000 produced, only a few Remington 1890s ever saw service as police revolvers and those primarily as sidearms for Indian police on western reservations. The 1890 Police is chambered in .357 Magnum and .45 Colt and comes complete with a lanyard ring just like the original.
