In 1861, after Texas seceded from the union, and all the federal troops left the Texas frontier forts, Ben McCullough cut a deal with Sam Colt to ship 1,000 of the new Colt 1860 Army revolvers to Texas for frontier defense. 500 successfully made it past the union naval blockade and were used by Texas Rangers to patrol the frontier. Cimarron Firearms offers an accurate replica of these early McCollough 1860 Army Colts. We’ll examine the history and features of this gun. Then we’ll see what it can do on the range.
