Eliphalet Remington (October 28, 1793 – August 12, 1861) designed the Remington rifle.

He was born in 1793 in the town of Suffield, Connecticut, to parents whose origins lay in Yorkshire, England. He was a blacksmith, and at 23, he hand-made a revolutionary sporting rifle using a firing mechanism bought from a dealer, producing the barrel himself.

The gun received such an enthusiastic response that Remington decided to manufacture it in quantity, and formed the firm of E. Remington and Sons, which he headed until his death in 1861. By the mid-1800s the gun had become immensely popular with American sportsmen and was one of the standard guns used in what has been called "the winning of the West".
