Features:

With his 1871 patent to convert percussion front-loading revolvers to breech loading metallic cartridge arms Colt employee Charles B. Richards was able to inexpensively convert the company’s arms already in stock to the new self-contained cartridge system. Colt also produced a number of them once the old percussion parts ran out as newly manufactured breech loaders. This the first truly practical method of updating their guns to handle the then-new metallic cased ammunition allowed Colt to sell these sixguns at a competitive price of just a few dollars compared to other metallic cartridge revolvers. In total around 9000 Richards Transition Models were manufactured between 1871-1878. Their low cost combined with their modernization proved popular with folks especially in the Western territories. Wild Bill Hickok was believed to have packed Richards conversions in his last years. In order to get Cimarron’s copy of the Type II or Richards 2nd Model Conversion exactly right we worked from an original in our antique collection. Our detail-perfect replica features the early Richards ejector with the Richards-Mason conversion ring gate and hammer. It can be had in the Standard Blue finish with an 8-inch round barrel or a cut-down 5 1/2-inch round barrel as found on many 19th century well used specimens. Calibers offered include .38 Colt/.38 Special .44 Colt/.44 Russian and a.45 Colt/.45 Schofield. Regardless of chambering or barrel length these six-shooters look and handle like the originals! Reproduced by Uberti for Cimarron made from originals in the Cimarron Collection.
