Handled an original 1875 Remington today at the LGS.

Nickel, 7.5" barrel in .44 Martin/Remington (heeled bullet).  Condition about 70%.  No asking price yet.  If I was rich.....  I'll try to get a picture next time I go in.

There was also a Uberti 1875 there with it.  Grip felt the same, though action was smoother and heavier on the original than the Uberti.  Be neat to pair with an original Richards.
