Cimarron Firearms Company adds the 1851 Navy cap and ball six-shooter replica, known as the Percussion Peacemaker, to its lineup of Old West style replica firearms.
Cimarron’s 1851 Navy revolver is chambered in either .44 or .36 caliber, featuring a 7 1/2-inch octagon barrel. The replica boasts laser engraving on a case hardened old silver frame with a standard blue finish. In addition the percussion six-shooter touts a one-piece fine diamond checkered walnut grip.
The .36 caliber wheel gun originated in 1850 and was a highly prized asset during the great Western migration, according to Cimarron. The gun was carried during the American Civil War by both Union and Confederate soldiers. Cimarron lists James Younger Gang and Wild Bill Hickok as some of the 1851 Navy’s more infamous owners.
“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 guns,” the company said in a statement.
The 1851 Navy replica features a price tag of $422.
