Bryant Ridge's Analysis:
When the Civil War ended in 1865, Remington was left with a bunch of stuff laying around as demand fell off a cliff. Developed as a means to sell some of that stuff, the Revolving Rifle was marketed as a hunting rifle, now that young men had time to hunt again. Basically, Remington took the frame of the New Model Army Revolver, which had been around since 1858, and married it to a long octagonal barrel and the stock from their new single-shot Beals Rifle. It was actually not a bad idea.

They were able to repurpose some existing inventory and tooling and produce a new firearm with very little upfront investment.Remington quickly saw that cartridge, not percussion, guns were the way of the future and, beginning in 1872, offered the guns as “cartridge conversions". That date is significant because the previous year had seen the expiration of Smith & Wesson’s patent on bored-through cylinders, making it less expensive to build and market guns with that technology. In all, about half the guns were cartridge conversion models while the rest remained in percussion.
