While I personally look at Cimarron’s firearms more as a novelty or a collector’s item, I know plenty of people who actively seek out replica “Old West” firearms for the pure joy of having and shooting them. Cimmaron has recently released a special edition revolver in honor of one of the firearms industry’s oldest and most honored magazines, the “American Handgunner.” The bi-monthly print magazine is a publication that has been in production since 1976 and covers topics from competition shooting to reloading and tactical knives. In honor of the 45 year anniversary of the magazine, Cimarron has released their master engraved Frontier .45LC revolver that comes complete with a leather tooled holster.

Cimarron Firearms Master Engraved Frontier .45LC Package
We were so proud to be invited to partner with Cimarron on this project. This special gun is a great example of our capabilities and a reflection of the efforts of so many members of our team. From the custom polishing, finishing, bluing, and selective gold plating, to the beautifully executed hand engraving by Heidi Roos, we couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate 45 years of American Handgunner magazine. We hope the winner of this revolver enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it shine.
-David Miles, president of Baron Engraving
As stated above, the Cimarron revolvers will be engraved by Baron Technology and will touch up the cylinder, frame, and the 4 3/4-inch barrel. In addition to the custom hand engraving, DeSantis Gunhide will provide a leather holster that has been made especially for the Frontier revolver.
The specially engraved Frontier revolver is a traditionally styled single action. No transfer bar means no loaded cylinder for safe carrying and this is true to form for early SAA revolvers. The revolver features a “swiss-style” safety which is made from a cylinder base pin with two notches on the front. The sights are said to be very clear and square on the engraved Frontier 45 as they are not of the “pinched” variety but rather square notched rear sight with a non-tapered front sight.
As part of the 45th-anniversary celebration, American Handgunner will be hosting a giveaway where one lucky winner will receive the Custom Engraved Frontier 45LC from Cimarron – What a prize!
