Also known as the “Improved Model Army Revolver” & the “Frontier Army”.
The 1875 Remington Improved Model Army was Remington’s first cartridge handgun designated to compete with Colt’s 1873 Revolver. Although they did not manage to get a military contract, the New Model or Improved Army did gain a lot of popularity with the public. They were a rugged handgun and even though a bit heavier than the Colt, held up well under hard use.

Remington offered this model in 3 calibers:
