Cimarron Introduces the “Laser-Engraved” 1851 Percussion Peacemaker

    “There are two kinds of people in this world, my friend: those who like their pistols engraved, and those who don’t.”

    Fortunately for the former, Cimarron has added another choice to their 1851 Percussion Revolver lineup: The 1851 Navy “Laser Engraved”.  Per Cimarron:

    Cimarron Firearms Company “Percussion Peacemaker,” the 1851 Navy Laser Engraved

    By far, the most famous of all cap and ball six-shooters, the 1851 Navy, carried by famed frontiersmen, Pawnee scouts, the Blue and the Grey and none other than “the Prince of Pistoleers,” James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok.

    Fredericksburg, Texas (November 2017) – Cimarron Firearms, recognized as the leader in quality and authenticity in Old West replica firearms, is proud to make available the legendary 1851 Navy cap and ball six-shooter replica, known as the “Percussion Peacemaker.” Originally introduced in 1850, the .36 caliber revolver was highly prized by stalwart individuals during the great Western migration including the gold rush of ’49 and carried by both sides during the American Civil War. Other famous and infamous 1851 Navy owners included John Wesley Hardin, Texan outlaw known to have shot a man for snoring, the James Younger Gang and Wild Bill Hickok. No other six gun sold more than a quarter of a million in less than a quarter of century than the 1851 Navy did, making it one of the Wild West’s most epitomes [sic] guns.

    Cimarron’s replica 1851 Navy revolver brings back all the lore and mystic [sic] with beautiful laser engraving on a case hardened old silver frame with a standard blue finish and one-piece fine diamond checkered walnut grip. The percussion style six-shooter is available in .44 or .36 caliber with a 7 1⁄2” octagon barrel for an MSRP of just $422.50.
