I like how realistic the gun look and feels. Awsome gun.like the you can change the ammoThings I would have changed:
The package. And also the way the cylinder got finished. Instead of grooves it shouldve been smoothed.
It's a beautiful gun, really like it, and the bullets make it all that more cool!
Beautiful rendition of this iconic revolver. Excellent fit and finish, great balance and suprising accuracy at 10 meters. Hats off to Crossman. Great value and lots of fun.Things I would have changed:
The heft and balance of this pistol is excellent. Feels good to hold and shoot. Great idea for this pistol to fire both BBs and pellets using two different shells..one for BBs and one for pellets. Fairly accurate, too.Things I would have changed:
Offer this pistol with brown or black grips, as well as the ivory grips. And, offer it in a blued version.
I am more of a collector of air guns than an avid shooter, and own a number of them other than this one, none of which I've ever used. Therefore, I'm in no position to rate it's effectiveness at doing what it was designed to do. I can say that the workmanship appears to be as good as one might reasonably expect at this price, and I'm not disappointed. It was on backorder for quite a while, but when it finally shipped it arrived in good order. My only complaint is that it came in a "bubble-pack" as though it was intended to be hung on a hook at the check-out counter. Know what I mean?Things I would have changed:
The only thing I take exception to is the "bubble-pack" packaging (I think it really deserves a proper box).What others should know:
I don't imagine anyone being disappointed in it's aesthetics or quality of workmanship, so if it functions well then everything's JAKE.
The pistol is well made and the chrome finish is very bright. The grips are larger than the original Remington 1875 but it feels just fine in my hand. I have shot both BBs and Pellets and find the accuracy acceptable from 30 feet. Standing without support I'm able to get 2" groupings with BBs and a little wider with pellets. It seems to shoot 1.5 inches to the left pretty consistently. The cylinder is easy to remove and put back. The CO2 loads easily inside the grips and it's easy to reload pellets and BBs into the shells without ejecting the cartridges. The pistol fits my Slim Jim holster really well.Things I would have changed:
I would eliminate the "1875' etching on the frame. I would sell these in boxes rather than blister packs. I would put screws in the grips like the real thing and affix the hex tool to the grip the way the Umarex SAA Colts have it. Every time I pull out the hex tool I have to be Careful not to lose it. I would have a choice of grips and make one of them real wood. I'd make the BB shells and Pellet shells shells a different color so that it's easy to tell them apart. Now i have to look at the back of the shell for the pellet likeness. The Colt shells are different, pellet shells are silver and BB shells are brass-gold.What others should know:
If you own a Umarex Colt SAA Pellet Pistol with the 7.5-inch barrel, I think you will find it is more accurate than this Remington 1875. However, this gun is fun to shoot and keep in mind I haven't zeroed it in yet. Be sure to push the pellets in all the way. I didn't with one and it jammed the cylinder. I had to remove the cylinder to free the pellet but happily it was easy to do.
Before I get into my review of this classic replica I should tell you that I do not purchase replicas for their power and accuracy. I buy them because I love replicas; particularly, classic old west replicas. I own five old west replicas; 2 Colt 45 BB Peacemakers, one weathered John Wane Colt Peacemaker, a 7.5" Colt Army Peacemaker, a Schofield Revolver, and now the just added Remington 1875 model. I love them all and use them for fun shooting often. However, when I want velocity and accuracy I reach for my Dessert Eagle every time. With that said, I was excited to add that Remington to my collection and have already had loads of fun putting it through its paces on my home range. Here are my Crony results:Things I would have changed:
Pellet Testing High Velocity: 291.7 fps Low Velocity: 267.0 fps Range: 24.7 Median Velocity: 279.95 fps Mean Velocity: 281.88 fps Variance: 56.448 Standard Deviation: 7.5132 BB Testing High Velocity: 390.2 fps Low Velocity: 365.2 fps Range: 25.0 Median Velocity: 373.45 fps Mean Velocity: 373.79 fps Variance: 42.283 Standard Deviation: 6.5025What others should know:
Accuracy was reasonably good, with pellet shots going a little high and to the left. BBs tended to simply go slightly high. Both did the same consistently. Easily correctable by sighting corrections. Better velocity with BBs. I am really not interested in the advertised velocity of 450 fps, since I know that this can be achieved by carefully controlled conditions and using very light 5.0 grain pellets under ideal temperature conditions. I do not shoot under ideal conditions. I shoot under average, everyday ambient conditions in my basement range and outdoors under whatever weather conditions exist at the time. Nor do I use expensive, precision ammunitions. I use 7.4 grain wadcutter pellets and off the shelf BBs. My testing is to provide a record of the average results that I can expect. With my CO2 collection, I like to have fun and this Remington 1875 Revolver fills the bill perfectly. It is a fine replica in every way, weight, feel and balance. You'll love it.
mine arrived today, disappointed with cheap packaging the gun was in, gun overall looks great, weight is good, gun finish is great, cylinder is tight, hammer cocking is smooth, trigger pull is smooth, grips are good as I have large hands, fit and feel is nice, gun shoots great with bb's didn't try pellets as of yet. I have a crosman Shiloh 1861, and this Remington is a great addition to compliment that gun, showing how far these guns have evolved.Things I would have changed:

I am happy that this finally arrived. I am a big fan of single action six guns. I own 15 of them in everything from .22 to .45LC with a couple of percussion, too. I have owned the Duke Colt for about a year now and been quite pleased with it. I shoot it a lot. I was really anxious to get this Remington out and compare it with the Colt. My first impressions were very positive. The parts appear to be very well made. There are no rough edges. The grip panels have a nice tight fit. Nothing feels loose if you give it a good shake. Cocking the hammer is smooth with the appropriate clicks. It feels like you are holding onto a real gun. It is hard to call this one a toy like it is so easy to do with some of the plastic BB pistols out there. I have an EMF reproduction of this Remington in .45LC. I compared them side by side. The CO2 weighs 2 lbs 4.8 ozs with the cartridges. My EMF only weighs 5.4 ozs more. For comparison, the Colt is 2 lbs 2.5 ozs. I like the pellets and BBsThings I would have changed:
The grip is big. It feels really big after picking up MY EMF. It extends over 1/4" lower at the flared base. It is fatter throughout the midsection. I'm not sure why they chose to do that, but it is a lot bigger than any six gun I own. It's much bigger than the Colt CO2, which is very close in size to my others. Although it is really noticeable, I was able to handle and shoot it well. It might be an issue for shooters with smaller hands and youth. I would have liked to see the grip in a more realistic size. I would like to see a realistic blued version with faux wood grips. I'd dream about a case-hardened frame appearance, too. I'm not a big fan of "Remington" and "1875" in big letters (on the left side of the one I received). It's kind of like tattoos on a beautiful woman. That's the only thing that makes this look like a toy. The packaging was the cheap clear plastic common with Crosman pieces. This gun is worthy of better packaging.What others should know:
I test fired this against the Colt at 25 ft from a bag rest. The Colt put six shots in 2-1/4" around the point of aim. With BB's, the Remington grouped 5 shots in 1-1/4" (I pulled to the side on the 6th). Pellets weren't as good. I put my first six in a 3-1/2" group. I tried again and got 2-3/4". Both groups hit much lower than the point of aim. They were up to 4" low. The best shot was 1-1/2" low. I do like being able to shoot both, but I liked the initial accuracy from the BBs. All testing was with freshly installed CO2. It decocks like it should. Just hold the hammer and gently let it down while pulling the trigger and pointing it in a safe direction. All-in-all, this is a great value. It is about as good of a historical reproduction as we can expect, especially in this price class. I am quite pleased with mine. I use my Colt to pester raccoons that wander into our yard. It doesn't hurt them, but they usually decide to move on after getting six taps on the rump!
