Arguably the most famous sixgun of the Old West, if not the best known in the entire world, Cimarron’s Frontier models look and heft just like those guns used by the famous and infamous characters of the Wild West. Men like Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, “Texas” John Slaughter, the Texas Rangers and the Arizona Rangers, all packed them to enforce law and order. While men such as Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Johnny Ringo, Butch Cassidy and members of his “Hole in the Wall” gang and other hombres who, as they said in the Old West, “threw a wide loop,” used them to ply their lawless trade.
Cimarron’s replica, inspired by an original, sports the traditional blue and color case hardened finish with walnut grips. It’s offered in the Old Model (1873-1896), or the Pre-War version (1896-1940). Nickel Plated, deep laser engraved versions are also offered in the Pre-War frame only. Great looking at an affordable price point, these come in two finishes- nickel and old silver frame (OSF)- a two-tone finish where the barrel, cylinder, and grip assembly is blued, and the frame is ‘in the white’- a polished steel finish. There are also two grip options- a poly ivory grip or a walnut grip. Both styles are available in .44-40, .45 Colt, or .38 Special/.357 Magnum, in the original barrel lengths of 4 3/4, 5 1/2, or 7 1/2 inches.
