Cimarron will donate 5 percent of the sale of every Texas Ranger Walker to the Former Texas Ranger Foundation. Founded in 1971 as a 501(c)(3) organization to support the oldest officially recognized Texas Ranger Organization, the Former Texas Rangers Foundation focuses on serving current and former Texas Rangers, their families and their contributions to Texas history.

The original 1847 Walker was a collaboration between Texas Ranger Captain Samuel Hamilton Walker and Samuel Colt. The intention was to build a powerful handgun for close range. Carried in a saddle mounted holster, the .44 – .45 revolver would be powerful enough to engage an enemy or enemy horse. Walker received and carried two of these revolvers in the Mexican-American War but was killed on the battlefield shortly after receiving them. Although Colt only manufactured 1,100 of them, 1000 military with company markings and 100 civilian models. The Colt Walker was used primarily in the Mexican-American War and on the frontier.

The six-round, single-action .44 features a 9” barrel, steel frame and Cimarron’s original finish with Company markings. Available later in 2018, the Texas Ranger Walker will have an MSRP of $668.75.

“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, remarked. “The Texas Walker replica is meticulously produced. The attention to detail and craftsmanship make this replica a very special collector’s item.”
