King of the Cowboys
Roy was one of a kind. In everything he did, on screen or off, he gave his all, living his life with a sense of honesty, integrity and patriotism that endeared him to fans around the world. His remarkable career included roles in more than 100 films, numerous popular recordings, a highly successful television show and membership in the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame, among other honors. In the end, however, his greatest legacy is found in the millions of lives he brightened with countless, treasured hours of great music and wholesome thrills.
Today, more than ever, America appreciates the value of real heroes. That’s why we’re pleased to announce an exclusive firearm issue honoring Roy Rogers, an American icon and champion of fair play. For the Tribute, we selected the legendary Single Action Revolver. Single Action revolvers found unprecedented fame and played an important role in America’s Western frontier days. These revolvers played a major role in Hollywood westerns, turning up in holsters of legendary western movie heroes like Roy Rogers. From silent classics to the most recent blockbusters, the Single Action Revolver was the pistol of choice in countless big-screen adventures.
The “Happy Trails To You” Roy Rogers Tribute Revolver is a celebration of timeless American ideals and the legendary entertainer who represented them to generations of adoring fans. This Tribute is sure to be popular with Roy’s many admirers across the country.
With his tremendous success, Roy never forgot his fans. Even at the height of his popularity, he tried to make sure every piece of fan mail that came in — sometimes as many as two thousand letters a week — got a personal response. Roy still made time to visit sick, injured and orphaned children around the country. Roy Rogers lived his life by the same code he preached to the young members of the Roy Rogers Riders Club: “Be courteous and polite … protect the weak and help them … be brave but never take chances … always respect our flag and our country.” Like the line in Dale’s song, “Happy Trails,” Roy believed, “it’s the way you ride the trail that counts.” From the trail’s beginning to its end, Roy rode tall and proud, like the hero he was.
Each revolver is decorated in 24-karat gold. Barrel features the legends “Happy Trails To You” and Roy Rogers Tribute, each displayed in a flowing banner, framed by Western-style scrollwork in the tradition of the finest presentation firearms.
The recoil shield features a handsome portrait of Roy Rogers. This incredibly detailed image will certainly bring back your fondest memories of America’s “King of the Cowboys.”
Along the backstrap is an image of Roy and his wonder horse, Trigger. The golden palomino served Roy faithfully in his film and television adventures. Here, Trigger rears up on his hind legs in the famous pose he struck in the many parades, rodeos and other public appearances he made with Roy over the years. Beneath this image is a recreation of Roy Roger’s signature.
