The Remington Smoot New Model line started in 1875 with the model 1 and finally ended in 1888 with the model 4.
The model 1 was chambered in .30RF and only had a two year production run.
The Model 2 had a similar fate.
The Model 3 and 4 became the most popular iterations and were produced until 1888. The model 3 had two variations chambered in 38RF and 38 Centerfire. Approximately 25,000 of these were made.
The Model 4 was chambered in 38RF Short, and approximately 23,000 were made.
The Smoot was popular for the time but unfortunately didn’t make the cut after the 1888 bankruptcy problems at Remington.
