Cimarron Firearms Company is a Fredricksburg, Texas company that imports fine reproductions of Old West guns from Italy. They range from Single Action Army revolvers to Wyatt Earp’s Buntline as well as a line of both shotguns and rifles. They are uniformly well made and are exacting reproductions.
That is why I was a bit surprised at this “upgrade” to their Model P Pre-War “Bad Boy” single action revolver. You can see the sneak peak of it in the video below from The Adventure Cowboy YouTube channel.
I guess putting a Vortex Venom pistol red dot on a single action army revolver is an “upgrade” to some as it could be used for hunting or target shooting. That said. the traditionalist in me is horrified. It just doesn’t seem appropriate to sully up a classic of the Old West with a battery operated optic made in the Philippines.
