Today I have the beautiful revolver Crosman Remington 1875 that I would like to show you in more detail.
Technical specifications of Remington 1875
The Crosman revolver is powered by CO2 cartridges. A 12-gram cartridge is inserted into the handle for this purpose.
The Remington can fire either .177 (4.5 mm) caliber pellets or .177 (4.5 mm) caliber steel BBs. The BBs as well as the pellets are inserted into the special cartridge cases included in the scope of delivery. If you like you can get more of these as spares.
The revolver has a single action only trigger. So, before each shot the hammer must be pulled back. Then you release the shot with the non-adjustable trigger.
The hammer can be pulled back in three positions. In the 1st position, the drum can be rotated freely. Then the ejector can be used to move the cartridge cases out of the drum. However, you can load the pellets even if the cartridge cases are still in the drum. You can decide what you like best. The cartridge cases intended for the pellets are marked with a small pellet symbol on the bottom. This way, there is no risk of confusing them.
The barrel is smooth on the inside. This is required to ensure that it is not damaged when shooting steel BBs. However, I myself only shot pellets during my test. I think that’s better in enclosed spaces, because then no bullet comes back to the shooter.
Design of Remington 1875
Due to the official licensing of Remington the markings and the appearance are based on the original.
The rather high weight comes from having a lot of metal. There is practically no plastic. Only the grip plates, which are kept in ivory design, are of course not made of metal.
Nowhere on the revolver could I detect any workmanship defects, welds, or burrs.
Collectors of high-quality replicas will have their hearts beat faster at the sight of Remington 1875. When you hold the revolver with its cold steel in your hand, you first realize how beautiful it is.
I hope the photos can reflect that to some extent.
Pulling back the hammer is also incredibly fun and gives you a real western feel! You don’t actually shoot at targets with a revolver like this. You need tin pans, tin cans or bean cans here, just like in the wild west.
It’s a whole different shooting experience than with a pistol or rifle. A completely different flair.
I can highly recommend this revolver to every collector and plinker. A beautiful piece of history.
How do you like the look of the revolver?
