Any '75 Remmie fans here?

Anybody own/use/like these things?

Interested in hearing about experiences, advice, fave loads, and mods you did/had to do, etc.

Have access to a few .45 LC repros, hope to try one soon.

Whether you've got a gennie or repro, it's all good, would love to hear about it.

Thanks.

Hi Oz308,

A Remmy collector here, and have several 75s. 90s, and a single 88. Haven't shot any of them and because of their condition, I may not. My 75s are 44-40 except for one 45, which in a very rare gun.

For shooting the repos I'd stick to SASS loads, or loads not too much stronger, just because I'm into to shooting for the fun, and don't need to punish myself. I have heard that the real fun is shooting black powder, but I have no experience with black powder cartridge shooting.

I'd love to find an original 75 with the 5 1/2" barrel, especially if it was a 45. Also like to find one of the rare, Hartford Armory 75s that were made, I think, in the 1980s or 90s. I may have to break down ond get one of the Uberti versions.

Take care, and enjoy them,
Daniel

Thanks!

Thanks for the commentary, it's appreciated!

Wow, if you got gennies, that's really cool. There is a smith down in Texas, if we get through all this current crap, I'd like to try out.

His website is cartridgeconversions.com, really interesting stuff. I've been wondering if he can change the Uberti designed cross bolt pin, into a real Remmie style pin catch, amongst a few other things. He does refinishing and defarbing as well.

Don't know if you'd want to, but someday maybe you might post (saveable) pics
of the real ones. Been collecting what pics of old ones I can off of some of the auction sites.

Regardless, thanks for the reply, and be careful out there

Shoot a 58 conversion and an 1890 and love both. Not all revolvers at the time were Colts. Love my Schofield also.

Have a bastard I might sell:

1890 frame configured with a 75' ejector housing
Custom done in .44 special years ago
80% finish, case colored frame. Work done by a smith in montana back in the 50s. Not cheap though

went through this a couple years ago
when 1875 clones came in they were sold in .357 magnum, proofed for it in Italy
They are plenty strong but brutal shooters
