Richards conversions of the 1860 Army were made from 1871 – 1878 with about 9,000 produced. On these guns, the cut out area of the barrel normally used for the loading lever was used to secure the ejector housing in place. The ejector rod was exposed between the end of the ejector housing and the breech of the barrel. On the original, the firing pin was located in the recoil shield; however, on these reproductions the firing pin is located on the hammer.
