Cimarron Firearms Introduces Pair of Lonesome Dove Revolvers

In the pantheon of stories about the Wild West, “ Lonesome Dove” is often hailed as one of the best. Writer Larry McMurtry’s seminal novel was published in 1985, and earned the following year’s Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. A few years later, the book was adapted for a television miniseries screenplay starring dual leads Robert Duvall as Captain Augustus McCrae and Tommy Lee Jones as Captain Woodrow F. Call, two gun-slinging old Texas Rangers turned ranchers. The series enjoyed overwhelmingly positive reception and significant acclaim, as many critics have credited it with reviving the once-dead Western film genre. The series was nominated for eighteen Emmys in 1989, of which it won seven. As you’d expect for the category, the show featured many classic firearms like revolvers and lever-action rifles, of the style that Cimarron Firearms specializes in today.

Rock Island April 2018 Premiere Firearms Auction Sets 10 World Records!

I was going to write another overview of the most expensive firearms sold at recently ended Rock Island April 2018 Premiere Firearms auction in the same fashion that I have been doing it before. However, this time the auction was quite different – it set 10 world records of firearms sold at auctions. So instead of doing a top ten list, I thought it would be more interesting for our readers if I dedicate the article to the firearms that set these price records.

The record titles link to the corresponding Rock Island Auction Company website pages where you can learn more about these firearms. It is also important to understand that these records refer to sales in auction houses because it is impossible to know the sums of all the private deals.
