Fredericksburg, Texas ( Cimarron Firearms, recognized as the leader in quality and authenticity in Old West replica firearms, released its modern take on a classic .44 Magnum single-action Army style revolver earlier this year and now The Adventure Cowboy, Clayton Marxer explains what makes the Bad Boy truly an “old west meets new west” gun for today’s sport shooter or collector in his latest video review.

Designed by Cimarron Firearms founder and owner, Mike Harvey, the Bad Boy exemplifies the best of “old school” design with the Pre-War frame, Army grip, 6” or 8” octagonal barrel and non-fluted cylinder. What sets the Bad Boy up to become a modern take on an old but popular style is the addition of an adjustable rear sight and a tall blade front sight making this an incredibly accurate gun. The Bad Boy in .44 magnum incorporates a modern power caliber in this iconic design.

“I love the Single Action Army/Peacemaker type revolvers, and have spent considerable time shooting them. They have a look and feel that just can’t be replicated by modern, magnum, double-action revolvers,” Clayton Marxer, commented. “That being said, I am also a hunter, so I appreciate magnum power and the accuracy of adjustable sights. The Cimarron “Bad Boy” .44 Magnum is the best of both worlds. With the Bad Boy, I get a true Single Action Army feel, with the Pre-War frame, Army grip, octagonal barrel, and hammer-mounted firing pin combined with .44 Magnum power and sights that make it easier to hit targets or game at distance with accuracy.  While there are other single action revolvers on the market, the Cimarron Bad Boy stands out from them all with a design that honors the cowboy heritage, while putting the power of a .44 Magnum in your hand.”

Just bought a Thunderer in .357 mag. made by Uberti for Cimarron and it has the best trigger I have had on a pistol since my old Python days. I got the 3 1/2 in. for carry but it’s substantially heavier than I could have imagined, and so it will be a glove box only gun for CCW.


This looks like a very nice piece of equipment. I always shoot a wheel gun in single action even if it is double action.
I’ll have to ask Santa about one of these.

I too am a single action lover. Been shooting for at least 60 years now. Am a retired police officer and carried a wheel gun all the time. Your weapon sure looks enticing.
