Honoring The Brave Soldiers And Warriors Who Fought At The Battle of the Little Bighorn
Little Bighorn. Sitting Bull. Crazy Horse. Custer. After more than a century, the names still stir our emotions. Like Gettysburg and Bull Run, the Battle of Little Bighorn is a battle burned into the American consciousness, a brief moment in time preserved forever in history. By the banks of the Little Bighorn River, the spectacular career of George Armstrong Custer ended. Historians may debate the whys and wherefores of the battle, but it will forever be remembered as a milestone in American history.
For the men of the Seventh Cavalry, it was the ultimate test of courage. For the American Indians, it was one last great victory. About the Cavalry at Little Bighorn, in later years Sitting Bull said, “I tell no lies about dead men. These men who came with the ‘Long Hair’ were as good men as ever fought.” Brave Wolf said, “It was hard fighting; very hard all the time. I have been in many hard fights, but I never saw such brave men.” The Seventh Cavalry Tribute Revolver is a fitting, lasting memorial to that unforgettable battle and to the proud warriors who fought on both sides.
America Remembers is proud to present the Seventh Cavalry Tribute Revolver which remembers the courageous soldiers and warriors who fought at the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Craftsmen commissioned specifically by America Remembers decorate each working blued steel revolver in sparkling 24-karat gold. This Seventh Cavalry Tribute is issued on a Single Action revolver.
On the right side, “Seventh Cavalry” is featured on the barrel. On the right side grip are the crossed sabers which are a symbol of the Seventh Cavalry.
The Single Action revolver is a Western classic, often referred to as the “gun that won the West.” It was a favorite of lawmen and outlaws of the Old West. Each revolver in the edition is a working Single Action revolver in caliber .45 LC. Each revolver now available in this edition is produced for us by the master craftsmen of A. Uberti, who have expertly created this classic firearm just as they have created so many of the western classics since 1959, and have established themselves as the premier maker of historical firearms recreations. For decades, their craftsmen have combined modern high-grade materials with the time-honored methods of finishing to create exquisite, working reproductions of history’s greatest firearms
On the left side of the barrel is the inscription, “George A. Custer” in 24-karat gold, and on the right, “Seventh Cavalry.” Framing each inscription are a pair of crossed sabers and the number “7.” Encircling the breech of the cylinder is a diamond-shaped design reminiscent of the design on an authentic Sioux saddlebag, while each chamber is alternately marked with a saber or an arrow, representing the two proud armies of the Little Bighorn.
Framing each inscription, on both sides of the barrel, 24-karat gold crossed sabers and the number “7” signify the Seventh Cavalry. On each side of the frame, the inscription “U.S.” recreates the markings present on all Colts issued by the government during this era. A combination of Cavalry and Indian symbols adorn the cylinder. A diamond-shaped pattern is from an original Sioux saddlebag. Each chamber is alternately marked with a saber or an arrow, representing the two armies who fought at the Little Bighorn. The final element is a pair of faux ivory grips, laser-etched in amazing detail.
A pair of presentation grade faux ivory grips have been laser-etched using the finest technology available. Etched onto the left grip is a portrait of the man the Sioux called “Long Hair,” George Armstrong Custer, and on the right grip is the crossed-sabers symbol of the Seventh Cavalry.
