Fredericksburg, Texas (April 2020) – Cimarron Firearms, recognized as the leader in quality and authenticity in Old West replica firearms, first introduced new shooters to Cowboy Action shooting with an entry-level .22 LR 6-shooter they called the “Plinkerton” in 2008. Twelve years later, the Plinkerton is again available as a perfect fit for shooting newbies and shooting pros alike. What made the Plinkerton an initial success was its single-action, Colt-Army style look and feel and excellent handling and its very affordable price.
An excellent choice for young and old shooters, the Plinkerton’s .22 caliber is a comfortable target platform with superb balance and excellent fit and finish. The steel-lined 4 ¾” barrel is the perfect length for successful plinking. It features steel-lined chambers in the cylinder and Colt-style front sight. The plastic grips are fully checkered and feature the Cimarron rider on the grip’s medallion. Trigger and hammer are traditional single-action style and the revolver is finished in a non-reflective matte black finish. The key-operated hammer block safety, when rotated 90 degrees, prohibits the hammer from striking the firing pin.
The Plinkerton is also a great “around the ranch” pistol, perfect for clearing out small varmints or making swiss cheese from discarded cans. The Slim Jim Plinkerton holster is a belt worn holster specific for the 4 ¾” barrel pistol, made of quality genuine tan-colored leather.
Cimarron Firearms Plinkerton .22LR revolver has a suggested retail price of only $180.70 and the optional Slim Jim holster retails for only $50.75.
