Remington New Model Army .44

Patented in 1858, the Remington New Model Army percussion revolver was the major competitor to Colt in the American Civil War, and considered by many to be a more accurate and sturdier firearm.

The percussion model could be altered to accept cartridges, before Remington introduced their first cartridge revolver in 1875. The cartridge version differed very little in appearance from the percussion models.

A Remington percussion revolver, modified for cartridge use, is Angeleyes' choice of firearm in 'The Good, the Bad and the Ugly'.
