One hundred years ago on Jan 10, 1917, America lost a larger-than-life icon of the American West. William “Buffalo Bill” Cody, whose name soon became synonymous with the firearm. He was a gunslinging mastermind of the wild west, first working as a scout for the US Army in the Utah War and then later served in the Kansas Cavalry during the Civil War. Soon after he gained fame for his Wild West Show including military reenactments and trick shooting by the likes of Annie Oakley and “Wild Bill” Hickok.

Now, to honor the passing of the renowned frontiersman, Uberti is offering this limited edition fully functional recreation of Buffalo Bill’s favorite handgun: the Remington 1858 New Model Army Revolver. It’s a .44 caliber cap and ball revolver boasting a blue steel frame and brass trigger guard, an 8-inch barrel, handsome scrollwork etching, and simulated ivory grips. Also, on the right side of the barrel is Buffalo Bill’s full name, while the left side hosts the dates of his birth and death. It’s an heirloom-quality piece that’s certain to look great mounted on the wall in your cigar room. Only 500 will be made available for purchase. Priced at 1,049. [Purchase]
