1878 Coach Gun 12 ga., 26" Barrel, Standard Blue

SKU: 1878CG26
The single best, and most economical arm for hunting and defense in the Old West was the side by side, double-barreled shotgun. Scores of thousands of these sidehammer scatterguns were a mainstay to settlers, miners, ranchers, gunfighters, and virtually anyone who needed a weapon. In times of civil unrest, many lawmen considered the scattergun as the best town tamer and express companies especially realized the value of these smoothbores and armed their messengers with them. They each knew the threat of scattered shot from a shotgun's blast had a greater chance of dissuading an unruly crowd or a road agent, than would the single projectile from a rifle or pistol.

Cimarron's 1878 Coach Gun, inspired by an original in our collection, is available in either the full-length 26-inch barrel, or the 20-inch barreled model, both capable of handling 3-inch shotshells, with the traditional exposed sidehammers, a pistol grip stock and schnabble forearm, blued barrels and a color case hardened receiver. When you ride shotgun, ride with a Cimarron 1878 Coach Gun.

What a great gun!Review by Mean Bob Mean

The balance is good, it is heavy enough to use with express loads if you want to shoot some ducks or coyotes. The dark oil finish on mine hearkens back to another time and I have to say that it is built like a Russian tank. I love this piece. (Posted on 8/12/2013)
Great SxS that gets looks at the clay rangeReview by Korean Cowboy

Got this SxS a couple years ago to break clays. I wanted something with old world style and love the Old West era so this was a great option. Mine came with removable chokes (full) in both barrels. The hammer spurs are close to each other making cocking them with one sweep of the thumb very easy. The triggers are okay, bit stiff, certainly not target triggers by any means. The wood furniture is beautiful! Make sure to oil it up though, mine came very dry. It is a heavy gun which makes a long day at the range feel even longer. But the weight also means it swings very well. Many friends have said they love how steady it is when tracking the target. This gun is made in China but it is made very well and definitely up to Cimarron's exacting standards. The gun is a great addition to any collection, is a fun shooter and a great conversation piece. I owned the 20" coach gun prior to this and that is also a great gun for CAS. (Posted on 1/10/2013)

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:
