1860 Army Civilian 8" .44 USA OLD GLORY FLAG INLAY

The American Civil War was one of the darkest times in our country’s history. It was fought on both sides by honorable men of the United States of America and the seceded Confederate States of America from 1861 to 1865. The War profoundly shaped our cultural and political landscape forever. Cimarron Firearms pays tribute to this turbulent but important time in America’s history by producing The Blue and The Gray series. Each revolver in this limited series will include a certificate of authenticity bearing the Model, serial number and number produced within the series, making it a true collectors item. This Cimarron revolver is a detailed replica of those originally used by officers and soldiers during the Civil War. For those who prefer a cartridge firing revolver the percussion model is converted at the factory to center fire. The flag inlay was hand carved from a block of micarta knife handle material by legendary grip carver and maker, Paul Persinger of El Paso, Texas. Our jeweler here in Fredericksburg, Champe Jennings made a mold from the carving and casts the inlays from pure silver.

Our jeweler here in Fredericksburg, Champe Jennings made a mold from the carving and casts the inlays from pure silver. The 1860 Army, a .44 caliber cap and ball revolver, combined ease of handling with power and streamlined looks. Out of the more than 200,000 '60 Army models produced from 1860-1873, over 73,300 civilian versions of this popular revolver were produced. A favorite with many westerners, the '60 model was known to have been used by the notorious James-Younger gang, John Wesley Hardin, Mormon "Avenging Angel" Porter Rockwell, Wells Fargo detective James Hume, the Texas Rangers and Sam Bass, to name a few. Despite his reputation with the 1851 Navy model, there is a circa 1864 photo of "Wild Bill" Hickok packing a pair of 1860 Army revolvers in his holsters--butt forward!   Cimarron's 1860 Army Civilian model duplicates those sixguns made for the public market, and like the pricey originals, this .44-bore revolver is offered in the 3-screw civilian-style color case hardened frame, loading lever and hammer, with an 8-inch round barrel in Standard Blue and Charcoal Blue. It's also available in their Original Finish. The '60 civilian sports a brass trigger guard and back strap, fitted to handsome one-piece walnut stocks. Cimarron's detail perfect replica represents one of the true classic six-shooters of the Wild West of the 1860s and early 1870s!
