It’s a detail-perfect rendition of the single action of Custer’s ill-fated 7th Cavalry’s, legendary revolver. Each authentic 7 1/2-inch barreled, firearm is properly stamped with Ainsworth’s OWA cartouche on the walnut stock, government proof marks and the inspector’s initials are found in all of the appropriate locations and the last 4 numbers of the serial numbering is on the cylinder, as well as on the color case hardened frame, trigger guard and blued butt strap. The proper 2-line patent dates and the U.S. stamping is also found on the left side of the frame, as with genuine “Custer era” cavalry revolvers. This model is limited to just 2,000 units of each of Custer’s five companies C,E,F,I and L, that perished under his command at the Little Big Horn. Available in Standard Blue, Charcoal Blue or Original Finish. Holding Cimarron’s 7th Cavalry model is like holding history in your hand!
U.S. Cavalry Scout Model
Cimarron’s U.S. Cavalry Scout Model is an authentic copy of the 1873 single-action revolvers issued to these brave warriors in blue, reproduced directly from one of our antique collection’s original firearms. Like the troopers’ 7th Cavalry Model, this 7 1/2-inch barreled, .45 Colt caliber, full nickel-plated peacemaker-styled sixgun bears the OWA cartouche of 1870s military inspector Orville W. Ainsworth on the walnut grip. Other government proof and inspector’s markings are stamped in the proper locations, as well as the 2-line patent dates, the U.S. stamp on the frame, and uses blued screws and cylinder base pin.
U.S.V. Artillery .45 COLT, 5 1/2″
In 1898, the First Volunteer Cavalry, a colorful unit of cowboys and other adventurous young men was formed, with veteran Indian fighter Col. Leonard Wood in command and Lt. Col. Theodore Roosevelt second in command. Recruited in a San Antonio bar and trained at Camp Wood in Texas in 1898, “Teddy” Roosevelt’s “Rough Riders” would carry over 100 of these Artillery models when they bravely charged up San Juan Hill in Cuba.
Here’s another great historical reproduction inspired by an original in Cimarron’s antique collection. Available in Standard Blue or Original Finish, our detail-perfect Artillery Model bears the government inspector Rinaldo A. Carr’s cartouche and all martial markings, including the U.S. stamped frame, just like those reissued guns that went on to see service into the early years of the 20th century.
