Description

Features:

As the self-contained metallic cartridge was being developed and perfected many firearms manufacturers and private gunsmiths were busy converting the cap and ball arms to metallic cartridge models more commonly known as “conversions.” However rather than convert the older percussion arms the Remington factory began manufacturing their popular New Model Army revolvers as metallic cartridge guns. Cimarron has taken their 1858 models and improved these replicas for the modern shooter. The 1858 New Model Army–a .44 bore handgun–was originally converted to either .46 rimfire or .44 rimfire and centerfire metallic cartridges and priced for the civilian trade at a whopping $9 per copy. On the other hand the New Model Navy revolvers were percussion arms returned to Remington by the U.S. Navy to be converted to .38 centerfire. Reproduced from an original new model army from the Cimarron collection and now available in Standard Blue and color case hardened Cimarron’s 1858 New Model Army can be had with either the 5 1/2-inch or the 8-inch octagon barrel in your choice of .45 Colt .44-40 or .38 Special (in 5 1/2-inch barrel). A 7 3/8-inch barreled New Model Navy chambered for the .38 Special cartridge is also available. Both versions have ejector rods. Cimarron’s replica Remington New Model Army or Navy looks and handles like the real deal!
