CIMARRON THUNDERER REVOLVER
"To paraphrase the famed film director John Ford, "If this isn't the way the old west sixguns were, it's the way they should have been!" Firearms buffs have always wondered why the single action was never produced in the 19th century with the grip style of the double action Thunderer revolvers. Now you can have the best of both worlds, in four handsome and practical barrel lengths. Above is the compact 3 1/2", a superb carry single action revolver." - Phil Spangenberger, Old West Historian -
In 1991, Uberti was looking for a new model that would expand their production. 'Texas Jack' (Mike) Harvey of Cimarron was asked for his input. Harvey told Uberti that they should make a short barrelled sheriff model SAA with ejector. It was determined that 3 1⁄2" was as short as is physically possible. Harvey then added that he had an idea for a great grip frame for this little gun. Before disclosing the grip modification Uberti agreed to produce this model for Cimarron only. Harvey then took grip frames and dimensions from three classic Colt revolvers, the 1878 DA, the 1877 Colt Thunderer DA, and the 1st generation 1873 SAA, features from these three grips were combined into the grip frame of the new Thunderer. Drawings for Cimarron's tooling were forwarded to the factory and the greatest handling SAA ever made was on its way into production.
