Relive The “Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear”
America Remembers introduces the Clayton Moore Tribute Revolver. This Tribute reflects the life and career of Clayton Moore on a single-action revolver.
Clayton Moore was a hero to many of us growing up. In addition to the action-packed drama that captured our imagination, he stood for the ideals of justice, fair play, honesty, and patriotism. On screen and off, he embodied all the heroic traits of the characters he played, including the Lone Ranger, his most famous role, so well that it’s often hard to tell where the role ended and the actor began.
For millions of us who grew up watching Clayton Moore’s adventures on television, just the sound of his voice can take us back to our childhood, when “heroism” meant more than being the fastest draw or the toughest fighter – it also meant standing up for what is right, and treating all people with courtesy and respect.
As you may know, prior to his portrayal of the Lone Ranger, Clayton Moore had already lived an exciting life, starting as an acrobat and trapeze artist in his youth and going on to become a soldier, model, and actor. Working with Republic Pictures, Clayton was known as the “King of the Serials,” starring in weekly action-packed films, which were a staple of the Saturday matinees.
Now to honor this legendary figure who influenced so many of us, America Remembers is pleased to announce the Clayton Moore Tribute Revolver. A fully functional, working .45 caliber Single-Action Revolver, the Tribute is a true masterpiece decorated in a combination of 24-karat gold and nickel, with a mirror-polished finish that gleams as brightly as our memories of those “thrilling days of yesteryear.”
This Tribute was planned and introduced with the full authorization and approval of Clayton Moore prior to his death. He was enthusiastic about this issue.
The recoil shield features a portrait of Clayton Moore in exacting detail.
Clayton Moore’s signature is etched on both sides of the barrel and highlighted in gold.
For this Tribute, we selected the classic Single-Action Revolver, made famous by Samuel Colt’s legendary firearms company. As you known, the SAA revolver was the handgun of choice for many of the Old West lawmen, outlaws, and settlers, such as Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and Wild Bill Hickock. It is often referred to as the “Peacemaker” and “the pistol that won the West.” In the lore of the Old West, it’s considered the classic American revolver, and was a favorite of the silver screen cowboys such as Clayton Moore, Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, Hopalong Cassidy, and John Wayne. To this day, the SAA continues as one of the most popular firearms for collectors and Old West enthusiasts alike.
On the left side, you will find a panel decorated with 24-karat gold and nickel artwork of Clayton Moore atop a mighty, rearing stallion. On the recoil shield you will find a handsome lifelike portrait of Clayton, with a beaming smile for his loyal fans.
The right side of the frame features three bullets – a necessity for any cowboy’s survival in the Old West.
Featured on the backstrap is the Tribute’s name and edition number beneath a pair of crossed pistols. The handsome faux ivory grips elegantly complement the presentation and accentuate the gleaming nickel finish.
Clayton Moore authorized us to produce 500 revolvers for this issue. He received the first revolver in the edition and by ordering now, you can be certain to own the same revolver that was so proudly displayed by Clayton Moore in his own collection.
Craftsmen commissioned specifically by America Remembers decorate each Tribute that celebrates Clayton Moore’s long and accomplished career.

Over the years, Clayton Moore received many awards and honors, including recognition from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, the Stuntmen’s Hall of Fame, and he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Even so, the reward he cherished the most was the satisfaction of his fans. “the mothers of America want their children to be like the Lone Ranger, ” he wrote. “I want them to be able to look at me and say, ‘Look how straight he stands, how good his diction is, how neat his personal appearance is.’ I want to represent fair play, honesty, and love of country.”
In a world where role models are few and far between, Clayton Moore stood out as the genuine article. This Clayton Moore Tribute Revolver celebrates the remarkable life and career of Clayton Moore.
