1858 New Model Army .45 LC, 8 in"

As the self contained metallic cartridge was being developed and perfected, many firearms manufacturers and private gunsmiths were busy converting the cap and ball arms to metallic cartridge models, more commonly known as "conversions." However, rather than convert the older percussion arms, the Remington factory began manufacturing their popular New Model Army revolvers as metallic cartridge guns. Cimarron has taken their 1858 models and improved these replicas for the modern shooter. The 1858 New Model Army--a .44 bore handgun--was originally converted to either .46 rimfire or .44 rimfire and centerfire metallic cartridges and priced for the civilian trade at a whopping $9 per copy. On the other hand, the New Model Navy revolvers were percussion arms returned to Remington by the U..S. Navy to be converted to .38 centerfire.

Reproduced from an original new model army from the cimarron collection and now available in Standard Blue and color case hardened, Cimarron's 1858 New Model Army can be had with either the 5 1/2-inch, or the 8-inch octagon barrel, in your choice of .45 Colt, .44-40, or .38 Special (in 5 1/2-inch barrel). A 7 3/8-inch barreled New Model Navy, chambered for the .38 Special cartridge is also available. Both versions have ejector rods. Cimarron's replica Remington New Model Army or Navy looks and handles like the real deal!

Love this revolver!Review by Macprowler

I like the older looking revolvers with the webbing, and was down to the Outlaw and this 1858 conversion. I chose this one because I loved the look of the octagon barrel. It is a heavy revolver, but it makes shooting the 45LC round much easier. The heavy barrel helps control the recoil and makes this gun very accurate. I ended up buying a second one to double my fun! The wood/bluing and brass makes a beautiful gun in my opinion. I prefer shooting the longer barreled revolvers. I have an 8" Ruger bisley which is a bit smoother and also fun to shoot, but I prefer my 1858 conversion revolvers!! (Posted on 7/8/2015)

This is my first Cimarron gun and defiantly not my last. Smooth shooting, great workmanship, price and handling. The 1858 conversion brings back the past. I wanted a 45 to match my Henry rifle. I'm not disappointed!! (Posted on 12/17/2014)

This is my night stand revolver ! It shoots most wonderful , with a lot of power. I love taking it apart and cleaning it . I stripped off the finish and oiled the grip. The select European black Walnut is stunning. You get what you pay for at Cimarron ! I can not decide on which Cimarron revolver to buy next or to shoot at the range. These revolvers are so accurate , stunning ,and tough. I want them all !!!! I have Cimarron sickness and I love it !!!! (Posted on 8/31/2013)

This thing wore me out on the range ! Too strong for my weak hand !! I bought it to keep loaded on my night stand. I will shoot it again next month and strip the grip. I feel so blessed to own this revolver and the 1858 New Navy also. My favorite is the 1858 New Navy in .38 special. I recommend that you buy them both. This revolver is mean and nasty ! I think that it is a better design over the 1851 , 1860, and 1873 Colt. I love owning all of them. All Cimarrons are beautiful , accurate ,and tough ! Get a life and buy a Cimarron revolver today !!!

This is my 9th Uberti-Cimarron revolver. I have one hand and the 45 Colt caliber is too strong for my weak hand. I shot it last , after shooting 150 rounds of .38 special lead round nose in my other Cimarrons. It kicks like a mule !!!! It is very accurate ! I love it and I am so happy that I own it. Next month ,I am going to shoot it again and strip the grip. This will be my night stand revolver ! I feel so blessed and thankful ! I now own more Cimarrons than Uberties . Cimarron sickness, I am Koo Koo for Cimarron ! If you love to shoot a lot , buy the 1858 New Navy in .38 special. Buy both if you can !!! "Look out for the crazies !

I like the old west post cap-n-ball. The 1858 Remington is my favorite. This gun is similar, has weight, good balance, is accurate and fits my hand. It's one of my favorite wheel guns. (Posted on 8/2/2013)

Frequently Asked

Cimarron FAQs

 Are they real?

Yes, all Cimarron Firearms actually fire.

 Can anyone order from Cimarron?

 Cimarron Firearms can only sell cartridge firearms to FFL licensed dealers.  To find a dealer in your area, please use our dealer locator.

Percussion firearms can be ordered directly from our website.

 Can I use _____ ammunition in my Cimarron Firearms?

 We recommend that you shoot only standard over the counter ammunition that meet SAMMI specification’s, http://www.saami.org/.

 Shooting any ammo like +P or reloads will void the warranty on the gun.

 Cimarron Firearms does not have any plans to make any gun’s that shoot +P ammunition.

 What makes Cimarron Firearms different as an importer?

 Cimarron Firearms worked closely with Uberti in the 80s to completely change the look and feel of the replica firearms you see offered by many companies today.  For more information on this, visit our page Why Cimarron is the Best Buy.

 Is there a minimum order?

 No, we do not require a minimum to order directly from us.

 Do I have to put money down to put something on backorder?

 With the exception of customized guns, your firearms dealer can place something on backorder with no money down.  Keeping up with demand is one of the biggest challenges Cimarron faces.  The factories we work with simply cannot keep up with the demand for our firearms.  If you (the customer) are interested in something, have your local dealer call us or send us an email, and we will get you placed in the queue for that item.  When the gun comes in, we’ll call your dealer to see if you still want it.

 How long will it take to get my gun once I order it?

 This varies a lot per model, depending on the supply and demand of it.  Most items are delivered in 30 days to 6 months, depending on how many dealer orders are on file and how many firearms are on order from the factories. Special orders and customized guns can take longer.

 Why is it taking so long to get my gun?

 Cimarron spends a great deal of time working with the factories it partners with to try to keep up with the demand of our guns.  Unfortunately, this is not always possible.  Due to the craftsmanship and production demands placed on the factories, production schedules and, thusly, deliverables on what we have ordered, can oftentimes get delayed.

 What is Cimarron Firearms’ warranty?

 Cimarron means quality and we stand behind our product.  Please visit our warranty page for more info.

Do you ship guns outside of the U.S.A.?

 Unfortunately, Cimarron does not ship outside of the United States.  We can, however, ship parts, leather, and display boxes to Canada through these distributers:
