CIMARRON WALKER DRAGOON REVOLVER
In 1846, the fledgling state of Texas prepared to do battle once again with Mexico. This time the U.S. Army backed the Texans and Rangers. Ranger Captain Sam Walker was sent back east by General Zachary Taylor (old rough 'n ready) to meet with Sam Colt concerning the manufacture of 1000 special holster pistols for use by the Rangers to tame the Texas frontier and quell the Mexican mess on the border. Walker was selected because of his knowledge of Colt firearms. The new revolver was to be bigger, 'half as long as your arm", and better than the Paterson.
At this time Colt was bankrupt and his factory had been sold at a Sheriff's sale for $7000.00. Colt commissioned Eli Whitney's manufacturing company to make the new revolver and the infamous Walker Dragoon was born.
All Cimarron percussion revolvers come with authentic finishes. With Cimarron's Original® finish the replica can not be distinguished from the 150 year old original without close examination.
