The Walker Colt revolver is a legendary firearm, with a history that stretches from the Mexican War to 20th-century Hollywood to becoming the official handgun of the state of Texas in 2021. Due to its mystique, along with the fact that just over 1,000 were manufactured and less than 200 are known to survive, original examples continue to be some of the most valuable firearms in the world. Cimarron Firearm sells high-quality reproductions of the Walker. Several years ago, the company began offering a limited-edition “Walker’s Walker” series of the historic revolver that duplicated the original production run numbers and markings. New for 2024, it is offering the Company A series of Walker.

The original Walkers were the impetus of Texas Ranger turned U.S. Army soldier Samuel Walker. Walker discussed with Samuel Colt improvements that could be made to Colt’s Paterson models, which Walker had used in combat. The resulting design not only became a legend, it set Colt’s business up for success and kick-started modern firearm manufacturing. The basis of Cimarron’s new offering is its Italian-made Walker reproduction, with its 9” barrel and 4 lb. 9 oz. heft. The revolvers are marked similar to the originals, and their finish has been aged to mimic a firearm that has seen decades of service.

Original Walkers were issued in pairs to a Mounted Rifle trooper and numbered to their company (A through E with a three-digit number), in addition to 100 made for the civilian market with a four-digit serial number (the series honoring Samuel Walker’s own Company C have already been introduced). Cimarron will duplicate this numbering process and offer 1,100 Walker revolvers in this series, the exact number built in 1846. These revolvers will be available uncased or in a glass-topped, walnut presentation case with accessories, a print of the 1847 Walker schematic and markings celebrating the 200th anniversary of the Texas Rangers.

Uncased revolvers in Cimarron’s 1847 Walker’s Walker series have an MSRP of $895 (a good price, considering the original Walker cost the U.S. government $28 in 1847, or $1,100 in today’s currency). Cased models are $1,291. For more information, visit cimarron-firearms.com.
