Cimarron Firearms imported Uberti manufactured cowboy action shooting version of the 1872 Open Top Model Navy Grip revolver. The 1871-1872 Open Top was the forerunner of the famous and ever popular 1873 Colt "Model P" or Peacemaker. Open Top revolvers were manufactured during the time period that gave us the percussion conversion models of Richards and Richards-Mason types, but Open Tops were manufactured as an entirely new model and did not use percussion revolver parts. Original 1872 Open Top revolvers were produced in rim fire only due to the ready availability of 44 rim fire ammunition used in Henry and Winchester rifles throughout the American West. Also, the Open Top was engineered to eliminate some of the weaknesses inherent to the Richards and Richards-Mason conversion steels available and, as a result, much stronger than the orginal.
