Description
Prior to the Civil War, Remington was known for long arms, not revolvers. Beginning with their Model 1861 and continuing with the New Model Army revolver in 1863, Remington was Colt's closest competitor, selling more than 116,000 revolvers to the Union government. The.44 caliber six-shot New Model Army was as reliable, but not as popular, as Colt's revolvers.
