Cimarron is pleased to introduce the new Buffalo Bill Signature Series Frontier Model .45 Colt revolver. This celebratory piece bears William Frederick “Buffalo Bill” Cody’s signature and near full coverage engraving.
The Buffalo Bill Signature Series Frontier Model is patterned off the Colt Single Action Army revolver with a 5.5-inch barrel. One interesting note is that the scrollwork is entirely laser-engraved, ensuring precision cuts and uniform quality.
The revolvers sport engraving with 90 percent coverage with Buffalo Bill’s signature on the guns’ backstraps. They have a nickel finish and come with handsome diamond checkered walnut grips.
And while Buffalo Bill earned his namesake with a trapdoor Springfield, that’s no reason not to want this Signature Series revolver. It’s a beautiful handgun at a very accessible price point.
Cimarron is listing the Buffalo Bill Signature Series Frontier Model at just $747. Not only can you buy this gun to fill out a collection, you can afford to shoot it, too.
Originally a black powder round, .45 Colt is still a very capable cartridge to this day, almost 150 years later. If you’re looking to add a splash of 21st-century bling to your 19th-century cowboy sports, this might be your ticket. After all, Buffalo Bill was the showman of showmen throughout his lifetime.
While he lived a life of many careers, his greatest was as an entertainer. Buffalo Bill served as everything from a courier to a Medal of Honor recipient for his achievements in the Plains Wars, his real talent was drawing a crowd.
Buffalo Bill covered every inch of the Frontier and the established states hosting the Wild West show. Eventually, he traveled to Europe before and after 1900 for multiple tours. His guests included Woodrow Wilson, Queen Victoria, Kaiser Willhelm and even Pope Leo the XIII.
“His acts included Indian attacks on stagecoaches or frontier families, reenactments, horseback parades and shooting events with the likes of Annie Oakley, Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane and others,” states Cimarron. “Other historical figures, like Sitting Bull, also participated in his show, appearing with a band of his braves in full battle regalia.”
Wild Bill showed deep respect for American Indians and women, employing whole families to show the world how capable people really were. And although — and possibly because — he gained his nickname killing buffalo as a war tactic, he would, late in life, become one of America’s great conservationists, too.
