Remington revolver owned by Frederick Russell Burnham. He was a scout. He began his career at 14 in the American Southwest as a scout and tracker for the U.S. Army in the Apache and Cheyenne Wars. As an adult Burnham went to Africa where he soon became an officer in the British Army, serving in several battles there. During this time, Burnham became friends with Baden-Powell, and passed on to him both his outdoor skills and his spirit for what would later become known as Scouting.

Howdy!

The M1875 Remington is my favourite cartridge revolver. But I like the Colt M1860 Army in percussion as well as R & M conversion.
It is an odd thing maybe, but I do not like converted M1863 Remington's.

There's apretty good article on Burnham in the last month or two - he was an early aficionado of using two hands when shooting la pistol..
He was also pretty involved in Arizona's Pleasant Valley War aka the Tonto Basin Feud on the side of the cattleman.
