Cimarron Firearms, best known for its authentic Old West replica firearms, rolls out its exact replica of the 1847 Texas Ranger Walker.

The .44 black powder repeating pistol was on of the largest and most powerful pistols and Cimarron said its version will be authentic in order to pay homage to the original. Cimarron’s replica will feature company markings and original finish.

Texas Ranger Capt. Samuel Hamilton Walker and Samuel Colt teamed up to create a close range handgun, which would eventually lead to the development of the original 1847 Walker. The .44-/45 revolver, carried in a saddle mounted holster, was carried by Walker in the Mexican-American War. Unfortunately, Walker was killed on the battlefield shortly after receiving his pair of 1847 Walkers. Colt only manufactured 1,100 of the 1847 Walkers — 1,000 military models and 100 civilian variants.

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

Cimarron said a portion of every Texas Ranger Walker will be donated to the Former Texas Ranger Foundation. The organization was created to serve current and former Texas Rangers and their families in addition to honoring their contributions to Texas history.

The six-round, single action .44 revolver boasts a 9-inch steel barrel and will be available later this year with an MSRP of $668.
