“I’m a cowboy because I’ve always been a cowboy.
I was born into it.” – Ty Murray
If you want proof that the cowboy way of life is continuing in America today, you do not need to look any further than Ty Murray.
Ty Murray is a living legend of the American rodeo, the most accomplished athlete in the sport’s 100-year history. While most rodeo cowboys focus on one event, Ty became a champion in three – bareback, saddle bronc and bull riding. In addition to dominating the sport’s “rough-stock” disciplines, he’s also a nine-time World Champion Cowboy. It’s no wonder he’s known as “The King of the Cowboys.”
You would be hard pressed to find more a dedicated or authentic keeper of the cowboy legacy. Now that Ty Murray has retired from rodeo competition, he can be found on his 2,100-acre private ranch in Stephenville, Texas. There he raises cattle, rides horses and lives the only lifestyle he has ever known. “I’m a cowboy because I’ve always been a cowboy,” he wrote. “I was born into it.”
Now America Remembers is proud to announce an exciting, exclusive new Tribute honoring this living legend of the American Rodeo: The Ty Murray Tribute Revolver. This Tribute is an elegantly decorated presentation firearm that celebrates the life and career of nine-time World Champion Cowboy Ty Murray. The Tribute is issued on America’s classic Western firearm – the Single Action Revolver – produced by the master craftsmen of A. Uberti.
In choosing a firearm for the Ty Murray Tribute, the choice seemed clear. After all, no other handgun carries more of the romance and adventure of cowboys and the Old West than the Single Action Army revolver. “The Peacemaker” has truly become an iconic firearm and deserving of the title, “The Gun That Won the West.” No one can say for sure whether the Single Action revolver tamed the Wild West… or made it even wilder, but the undisputed truth is that no handgun is more associated with America’s Wild West.
Craftsmen commissioned specifically for this project by America Remembers decorate each revolver in sparkling 24-karat gold and nickel with blackened patina to highlight the details of the artwork. The result is a remarkable, limited-edition revolver that celebrates the spirit of a true American original.

The Ty Murray Tribute Revolver is a fitting tribute to the extraordinary character and career of an authentic rodeo legend.

Whether you’re a professional rodeo fan, an admirer of cowboy history or a collector of fine presentation firearms, the Ty Murray Tribute Revolver is certain to make a handsome addition to your collection.
On both sides of the barrel you’ll find “Ty Murray” featured in bold, classic western lettering above the distinction “Nine-Time World Champion Cowboy.” The wording on the barrel is flanked by ornate, decorative scrollwork that also adorns the cylinder, frame and backstrap. On the left side of the recoil shield, you will find a detailed portrait of Ty, looking every bit the part of the rugged rodeo legend in his ever-present cowboy hat.
Featured above the trigger on the left side of the frame, you’ll find Ty doing what he does best atop a bucking bull. Murray got his first taste of the “most dangerous eight seconds in sports” when he was still in grade school. Ty excelled at bull riding and earned many titles and belt buckles on the backs of some of the sport’s toughest bulls. In 1992 he became one of the founding members of the Professional Bull Riders, which has brought international fans and media attention to “America’s original extreme sport.”
On the right side of the frame and also along the backstrap, you’ll find Ty’s personal motto, “Never Weaken.” Throughout his life, Ty Murray never lost focus on who he wanted to be and what he wanted to accomplish. By age 32, Ty Murray retired, having broken every record and achieved his goal to excel in the sport of professional rodeo.
