The Colt 1836 patent expired in 1857, and the next year, Remington introduced a solid-frame design that was both elegant and reliable. The 1858 Remington became so famous that it was the prevailing choice of military officers following the Civil War. Its full-frame design still makes it a top choice for black powder shooters today as the cylinder can be removed without taking the firearm completely apart, unlike the Colt models.
The Ace model puts a modern spin on the much-loved 1858 Remington model with a snub nose barrel. Since this model has the shortened barrel length it features a "lever-latch" part to retain the cylinder pin in the frame and does not come with a loading lever. It also features a steel frame, brass triggerguard, octagonal barrel, fixed front blade sight, and different finish options for the two-piece grips. A conversion cylinder is available for this model that is a drop-in conversion to smokeless .45LC/.45Schofield ammunition.
