Cimarron imported Cowboy Action version of the famous Colt 1878 Shotgun with real working hammers. Known as "The Coach Gun", this version of the Colt 1878 Shotgun has the shorter 20" barrels for better handling in tight spaces and became popular with stagecoach guards across the American West protecting the passengers or the valuable Wells Fargo box hidden under the seat, from bandits or other dangers, hence the term "riding shotgun" today. Now you can relive the Old West by owning this fine reproduction of the shotgun Colt made in Hartford, Connecticut. Made with fine American Walnut wood, two 3" chambers, 12 gauge cylinder bores, two side-by-side 20" barrels and two triggers, one for each chamber, standard blue finish. Firearm weighs approx. 8 lbs. Made in China.
