Cimarron Firearms

Cimarron Firearms is an American firearms importer that has been in operation since The company's field of specialty is reproduction firearms from the American Civil War to the end of the Old West period. Founded by Mike Harvey in Houston, Texas, the company is now based in Fredericksburg, Texas.[1]

Cimarron produces firearms within the industry of western reproduction arms. The firearms are manufactured to their specifications by Uberti and Davide Pedersoli in Brescia, Italy. Uberti makes their revolvers, lever action rifles as well as the single shot falling block rifle, and shotguns. Pedersoli makes rolling block and falling block single shot rifles to their specifications. In Cimarron contracted Armscor to manufacture a pre-World War 2 pattern semiautomatic pistol to their specifications.[2]

Because of the attention to detail given their firearms, Cimarron's revolvers and rifles have been used by weapons masters in a number of Western Films. Additionally, Cimarron markets several of these firearms to collectors in addition to reenactors and competitive shooters. Many of the company's designs have won awards from True West Magazine's "Best of the West".

History[edit]

Leonard Frank Allen had started Replica Arms, El Paso, Texas in , with the first Colt Army replica, made by Armi San Marco. In he sold Replica Arms and relocated to Santa Fe, New Mexico. Allen then started Western Arms and found himself the subject of a lawsuit brought on by Winchester as "Western Arms" was the name of their ammunition company. Allen renamed the company using his surname.[3]

Cimarron Firearms began in as a muzzle loading shop and sporting goods store in Houston, Texas, known as "Bigfoot". Mike Harvey, who owned the shop, ordered plans for a Hawken rifle from a museum and built his first replica from scratch. As the economy worsened due to the early s oil depression in Texas, Harvey sought to diversify his stock by selling replica old-west firearms. He entered into a joint venture with Allen Arms importing Uberti revolvers from Italy.[3]

Dissatisfied with quality, as the guns were larger than the historical pieces upon which they were based and were covered with numerous proof marks that detracted from their appearance, Harvey contacted Uberti and sent specific instructions regarding the forging of revolver frames, metal polishing and case hardening. He followed this up by sending antique firearms from the time periods he wanted, and had Uberti build those firearms to his specifications. Finally he had the proof marks relocated to less conspicuous areas of the firearms in keeping with Italian law and enhancing their appearance.[3][4]

Cimarron was the first firearms company to offer antique finishes on modern made firearms, such as charcoal-bone case hardening.[3][5] Some finishes are applied in Europe prior to import, and some are applied to bare frames and barrels upon arriving in the US.[3] Firearms author John Taffin has credited Cimarron Arms and its competitor Navy Arms as being instrumental in restoring realism to replica period firearms.[4][6]

Another finish pioneered by the company was that of antiquated metal with engraving. This gives the appearance of a time-worn antique in a new firearm. The engraving on these revolvers matches the time period in which they were made. Percussion revolvers, for example, feature what is known as the New York or Louis Daniel Nimschke style of engraving from the s, while the Cimarron Model P revolvers are decorated in the later style of Colt's engraver Cuno Helfricht.[7]

The company maintains a retail shop that specializes in period clothing, accessories and Cimarron firearms known as Texas Jack's Wild West Outfitters, named for Texas Jack Omohundro, as Harvey owns several of his firearms. The shop caters primarily to the film industry and Old West reenactors.[8]

Firearms[edit]

Handguns[edit]

A Uberti-made Cimarron Model P in /32 WCF

The company's most popular offering is the Model P based on the Colt Peacemaker. One of the first supporters of SASS and Cowboy Action Shooting, Cimarron makes exclusive versions for competitors such as the "Evil Roy" model built to the specs of Gene Pearcey.[9][10]

Cimarron was the first company to offer a direct copy of the Colt Single Action Army Revolver in stainless steel that maintained the size and dimensions of the original.[4] Some critics have pointed out that the front sight blade is slightly wider and the rear sight notch is slightly narrower than the original Colt's, but that these changes make for a more accurate and easier to sight revolver.[4] Cimarron designed the first sub-4" barrel single-action revolver that used an ejector rod when it introduced the Cimarron Lightning SA model.[3]

In addition to replicas of the Colt Single Action ArmyRevolver, Cimarron imports exclusive replicas of transition pistols between the eras of blackpowder and cartridge revolvers such as the "Richards" Conversion, "Richards-Mason" Conversion and the Colt Model Open Top revolvers.[2][11][12]

In Cimarron released a copy of the Colt Model pistol. Made by Armscor in the Philippines the pistol is a replica of the original pre design for "Wild Bunch" type shooting matches.[13]

The Remington Model revolver is the most popular non-Colt handgun offered by the company.[4] They briefly offered clones of the Smith & Wesson Schofield revolver, but that model has been discontinued by Cimarron.[14]

Long guns[edit]

Cimarron has two-dozen versions of 19th century rifles built to their specifications by Uberti such as the various Henry rifles and Winchester lever-action carbines such as the Yellowboy, Winchester and the Winchester Model [15] Cimarron's Trapper is a replica of the Winchester Model carbine with one exception; the company patented a magazine spring and follower to allow a shooter the ability to load 10 cartridges in the short magazine for competition instead of the standard 9 rounds.[16]

Cimarron offers a replica of the Civil War era Spencer rifle chambered in a centerfire version of its original rimfire loading as well as more commonly available rounds such as Colt.[2]

Aside from repeating rifles, Cimmaron has exclusive single shot Sharps rifles and High and Low Wall single-shot rifles built by Pedersoli and Uberti.[15] These rifles include many custom features not found on other modern reproductions such as cut rifling that has been polished and lapped for accuracy.[2]

Movie firearms[edit]

Some production companies use Cimarron's replica firearms in their films, such as the remake of True Grit,[17]Unforgiven,[18]Lonesome Dove,[18]Far and Away,[18]The Lone Ranger[18] and Young Guns II[18] because of the attention to detail. In Cimarron's "Corporate Exhibition Shooter" Joey Dillon trained actor Josh Brolin how to handle single action revolvers authentically and Cimarron provided all the revolvers used in the Jonah Hex film.[19] Over 70 Cimarron firearms were used in Back to the Future Part III and the company provided 26 replica Colt Paterson revolvers for the miniseries James A. Michener's Texas.[18]

A pair of Cimarron Single Action revolvers were used by Leonardo DiCaprio in the film The Quick and the Dead. They were nickel-plated, engraved and serial numbered as #C and #C[20] Cimarron furnished the working prop guns for AMC's western series Hell on Wheels and the motion picture Open Range.[21]

Cimarron offers a version of the Colt Buntline revolver named the "Wyatt Earp Buntline" styled after the Uberti version used by Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp in 's Tombstone with a 10" barrel and a silver badge inlaid on the right grip panel.[22] Other movie replicas include the "Holy Smoker" based on the "Hand of God" revolver used by Russell Crowe's character Ben Wade in to Yuma[1] and a copy of Clint Eastwood's "Man With No Name" revolver.[23] Critics point out that from a historical perspective this type of conversion had no loading lever and included an ejector rod; however, Cimarron was faithful to the movie version which had a loading lever and lacked an ejector rod.[24]

Cimarron was the first company to import a replica of the Sharps rifle from Quigley Down Under.[25]

Shooting sports[edit]

In addition to manufacturing a variety of firearms used in cowboy action shooting, Cimarron sponsors an all female cowboy mounted shooting team called the "Cimarron Firearms Team of World Champions" and was one of the earliest proponents of this sport.[26]

Best of the West Awards[edit]

Cimarron's firearms have repeatedly won various "Best of the West" awards from True West Magazine against competing models from Colt, Ruger, and other US arms makers. In the Cimarron Double Barrel Shotgun and Cimarron Hammered Coach Gun won Best Cowboy Action Shotgun for Editor's Choice and Reader's Choice, respectively while the Cimarron Winchester replica won Best Cowboy Action Rifle.[27] The previous year the Coach Gun won Best Cowboy Action Shotgun and the Thunderstorm revolver took "Best New Western Gun".[28] In the company's Rifle won the "Best Repeating Rifle" category.[29] In Cimarron's Replica Lever Action Rifle earned Best Cowboy Action Gun.[30] saw the company earn Best Firearm of the West with their replica Winchester NWMP Carbine.[31]

In and Cimarron's Richards-Mason Navy Conversion won the category for Best Cartridge Conversion Revolver Reproduction [32][33] In their Richards-Mason Army conversion won the same category and the company's Model Single Action Army won Reader's Choice for Best Single Action Army Reproduction,[34] Cimarron took the same award in [35] Also in the Cimarron Arms Open Top and Navy Caliber won the honors for Best Cartridge Conversion Revolver Reproduction and Best Cap and Ball Revolver Reproduction.[35]

Cimarron Arms Revolvers for Sale in Detroit, Michigan

Cimarron’s replicas look so realistic because they offer antique finishes, such as antiquated metal with charcoal-bone case hardening and original engravings, which are designed to match the time period engravings of the original gun.

Cimarron Arms Revolvers

Cimarron offered a direct copy of the Colt Single Action Army Revolverin stainless steel, following the size and dimensions of the original, and it was the first reproductions manufacturer to do so. However, Cimarron’s version had a few improvements to make the revolver more accurate, such as a narrower rear sight notch and a wider front sight blade. Some critics were not content with the modifications, but in spite of that, the revolver was a success.

The company’s most popular non-Colt revolver is the Remington Model Single Action Army, also known as Improved Army or Frontier Army. This single-action was a competitor to Colt&#;s popular Single Action Army line. Another notable revolver is the Cimarron Lightning SA model, the first sub-4” barrel single action revolver that used an ejector rod. Some of the best revolvers of all time were brought back to light by Cimarron.

Cimarron Arms Revolvers are perfect for anyone who loves American history, loves period reenacting, or Western movies scenes.

Cimarron: The Wild West Revived!

Slap leather, Varmint! Fill your hand with authentic big-bore steel Sam Colt would have admired! 

by Wayne van Zwoll

Found in an old house in New Hampshire, the Colt Peacemaker lacked any link to famous people or frontier violence. The owner’s widow sold it to a visitor for $4. That was in Six decades later, at a Christie’s auction, it fetched $,

Such discoveries are now scarce as pterodactyls. Even single-action Colts post-dating , when the vertical screw locking the cylinder pin gave way to a horizontal lock, bring five-figure prices, says the Blue Book of Gun Values. Dig deeper still for provenance and minimal holster wear. Most of the meteoric bump in prices for Peacemakers—or Single Action Army or Frontier—Colts has occurred since WW II. In , a new Colt SAA sold for $

An instant hit at its debut, Colt’s Model P Frontier was among the first handguns bored for metallic cartridges. It boasted the looks and feel of popular plow-handled cap-and-ball pistols but fired the powerful Long Colt, initially loaded with 28 grains of black powder and a grain bullet. The earned more respect later, with a grain charge pushing a grain bullet at fps. The Army’s adoption of the revolver and cartridge ensured brisk civilian sales of both.

In , Colt offered its Peacemaker in ( WCF), already a favorite in Winchester’s rifle. On the frontier, nothing could have brought Colt more business. If a rifle jammed, cartridges could instantly serve a pistol, and vice versa. As ammo ran low, either arm could fire the last shots. No chance of mix-ups in furious fights with scalps on the line.

In Colts and Winchesters, fired by lawmen and scoundrels, the was claimed to have “killed more people, good and bad, than any other commercial cartridge.” Texas Rangers carried it, as did Royal Canadian Mounted Police. In the American West, it kept homesteads supplied with venison. It burnished its reputation in Europe and South America.

 “Quien es?”

Legend has it these were William Bonney’s last words before Pat Garret’s spoke from the New Mexico night. But Billy the Kid also carried an Colt. So did outlaws Cole Younger, Cherokee Bill (Crawford Goldsby), and Emmett Dalton, the only member of the five-man Dalton gang to survive its attempt to rob two banks in Coffeyville, Kansas. Robert Ford killed Jesse James with a Colt SAA. Psychopathic Harvey Logan used one riding as Kid Curry with Butch Cassidy’s Wild Bunch. Before Logan turned his gun on himself rather than face capture in , he’d shot George Scarborough dead. Four years earlier, Scarborough had killed fellow lawman John Selman. Selman’s had dropped Texas gunslinger John Wesley Hardin from behind after Hardin threatened Selman’s son.

The bloody trail left by Colt revolvers gained romance over time. With the s came the Great Western series of SAA look-alikes. “Every part … in the Great Western Frontier is interchangeable with the original Single Action Army Revolver [except the] hammer and trigger and bolt screws, [changed] to improve ignition and to prevent the ‘shooting loose’ habit of these screws.” Great Western centerfire guns featured a floating, frame-mounted firing pin.

Ruger’s Single Six revolver brought a rush of orders when it appeared in So did its Magnum Blackhawk two years later. “Rebirth of the single action,” enthused Shooter’s Bible. Ruger used “best quality music wire springs,” also a “micro adjustable rear sight and a Baughman Ramp front sight.”

Replicas supplied to the film industry helped establish EMF (Early and Modern Firearms) in ‘ In , as A. Uberti opened shop in Italy, EMF bought Great Western Arms. Pietta, an Italian gun-maker founded in , was tapped in to build Great Western II single-actions.

A century after the appeared in Colt’s SAA, black powder enthusiast Mike Harvey and his wife Mary Lou opened a gun-shop in Houston. Then, Mike bought Allen Firearms. To grow his business in cartridge guns, he visited Brescia, Italy, and contracted with Aldo Uberti to reproduce Colt single-actions using modern steels. Fit and finish had to match the originals’. So began Cimarron Firearms.

For decades now, Cimarron has worked with Uberti and other quality-conscious manufacturers to bring back historically significant Colts, from the Walker, Baby Dragoon, and Hickock’s Navy to various versions of the , and Mike’s own SA Lightning and Thunderer. Case-colored frames are standard. Finishes include antique “original,” bright charcoal blue, and even stainless. Cimarron has added Smith & Wesson’s No. 3 Schofield, Remington’s , and other 19th century stand-outs. A Hollywood line faithful to famous films features the Rooster Shooter, Wyatt Earp Buntline, Doc Holliday Thunderer, and The Wild Bunch pistol from Sam Peckinpah’s western.

My SA revolver inventory has long included Colts and Rugers, but until short months ago, never a Cimarron. Thus, my recent indulgence of three Cimarrons (two Ubertis, one by Pietta): a inch Pre-War Frontier Colt, a inch Old Model P , and a 4 5/8-inch Lightning All three show faithful detailing (down to the cylinder pin locks), close fit, and excellent metal finish. Trigger pulls are quite good. Clean four-click hammer travel and butter-slick cylinder spin warm my heart. Bullets land close to point of aim over fixed sights. These revolvers easily handle stiff modern loads, but I have more fun with Black Hills Cowboy Action ammo (a grain RN at fps in the , a grain RN at fps in the , and a grain FP at fps in the ).

Cimarron’s reproductions are predictable favorites in the Cowboy Action game and, to my mind, exceptional values. Authentic in looks and feel, my unembellished guns function without fault and shoot accurately. Prices for Cimarron revolvers range, roughly, from $ to $ Add a premium for stainless versions, charcoal blue and Custom Shop options like bone meal case coloring, “ultra ivory” eagle grips.

The company also re-creates historic long guns from the Hawken rifle to Sharps and Remington single-shots to the Spencer and Henry, and lever-action Winchesters to the Model

Unless denied the choice, citizens of our Frontier West wisely grabbed rifles to bring outlaws to heel. One fall day in , Tom and Bill McCarty, with Bill’s son Fred, rode into Delta, Colorado. Tom tended the horses as Bill and Fred drew revolvers in the Farmers and Merchants Bank. A teller shouting an alarm was felled by a bullet. Grabbing cash, the robbers fled. But merchant Ray Simpson caught them in the sights of his bore Sharps. As the robbers galloped off, he shot Bill McCarty in the head. Fred’s return fire missed. Reloading on the run, Simpson triggered the Sharps again, rending Fred’s skull.

Armed citizens twice foiled Henry Starr. In March, , he and five cronies attempted a double bank holdup in Stroud, Oklahoma. First National cashiers capitulated, but Stroud State’s resisted. Pulling a rifle from a pant leg, Starr forced hostages outside. There Paul Curry, a teen-age butcher’s son, downed Henry with a Winchester used to kill hogs. Curry’s next shot hit another of the escaping bandits.

Starr recovered, and within six years resurrected his gang. In People’s National Bank in Harrison, Arkansas, the robbers drew guns. But Manager William Myers grabbed an Winchester and dropped Starr with a shot to the spine. While surgery removed the bullet, uremic poisoning finished the outlaw.

The romance of the Old West was no doubt lost on many who defined it.

The Original

In , a one-ounce Double Eagle gold piece would have fetched a $ Colt Model P. Now $1, an ounce, gold has proved a miserable investment compared to vintage revolvers. Collectors list SAAs made from to as “first generation” Colts. The “second generation” run: to “Third generation” revolvers post-date In Sears, Roebuck offered a “Colt Single Action Army Revolver, caliber, inch barrel, beautifully hand-engraved in leaf and scroll design on the barrel, frame, cylinder, guard and butt; blued steel finish, inlaid gold lines around the muzzle and breech … gold stripes around the cylinder … pearl handles [plus a leather-covered] satin-lined case …. ” for $

The 19th century produced timeless firearms. Demand for their offspring won’t die anytime soon.
