Remington 1875 .45 Colt
« on: July 30, 2017, 03:10:06 PM »
This revolver came up for sale on the sister forum  1858remington.com.   I was familiar with the seller and the price was good so I figured "why not".   I'd never fired one before so I decided to give it a try.   Made by Uberti in 2015,  only a few rounds through it by the previous owner who bought it new.  The seller lives just 15 miles North of me so we met at a local sporting goods store to do the transfer paperwork.



I took it out for a spin yesterday,  I was pleasantly surprised to find the POI just a couple inches high of POA.   It does have a tall front blade sight though so it makes sense.   Compared to Colt replicas it seems a little front heavy.  Probably due to the way the frame extends rearward before the grip frame makes it's curve downward.  Overall it's fun to shoot and I only missed the gong twice out of 36 rounds at 25 yards.  Add the fact that it's a really nice looking revolver and I think I'll end up keeping it for awhile.
