Cimarron to Build Walker Replica

The original 1847 Walker was a collaboration between Texas Ranger Captain Samuel Hamilton Walker and Samuel Colt. The intention was to build a powerful  blackpowder revolver for close-range use. Cimarron will release later this year an exact replica of this historic firearm. The six-round, single-action .44 will feature a 9-inch barrel, a steel frame, and Cimarron's original finish with company markings. SRP: $668.75.

The 1847 Walker Replica is a six-round, single-action .44 that features a 9-inch barrel, a steel frame, and Cimarron’s original finish with company markings.

“The 1847 Walker was specifically designed to meet the hostilities of war, and it put Samuel Colt on the map as a gunmaker,” says Jamie Wayt, vice president of media for Cimarron Firearms. “The Texas Walker replica is meticulously produced. The attention to detail and craftsmanship will make this replica a very special collector’s item.”

Cimarron will donate 5 percent of the sale of every Texas Ranger Walker to the Former Texas Ranger Foundation, which was founded in 1971 as a 501(c)(3) organization to support former Texas Rangers, their families, and their contributions to Texas history. (
