The 1871-1872 Open Top was the forerunner of the famous and ever popular 1873 Colt 'Model P' or Peacemaker. Open Top revolvers were manufactured during the same period of time that gave us the percussion conversion models of Richard's and Richard's-Mason type but Open Top's were manufactured as an entirely new model and did not use percussion revolver parts.

Original 1872 Open Top revolvers were produced in rim fire only. This was due to the ready availability of 44 rim fire ammunition used in Henry and Winchester rifles throughout the West. Also the Open Top was engineered to eliminate some of the weaknesses inherent to the Richard's and Richard's-Mason conversion model. The Cimarron Open Top revolver is manufactured exclusively for Cimarron by Aldo Uberti & Co. and is made using the best gun steels available and, as a result, much stronger than the original.

"The graceful lines created by nineteenth century artisans have been captured fully in this late 20th century work of art in steel. The Cimarron 1872 Open Top is without a doubt the finest replica to come forth in the last decade." Texas Jack Harvey, President.
