It is unknown if this particular revolver was one he ever used in any of his many gunfights, but it is known that the Colt Army nickel-plated (of which he owned two) was one of his favorites. Bat Masterson had seen many lawmen taken down with their own firearms which is why he chose to wear his Colt cross-draw style. This way, no one could disarm him from behind.

It is likely that the engraving on the pistol was done by an engraver in Dodge City (where he was known as a gunfighter and sheriff) since Colt did not offer this service directly from the factory. After his death in 1921, many novels, comic books, and even films were based on Masterson’s life and now Cimarron firearms have once again resurrected a piece of the legendary gunfighters life with a replica of his custom Frontier 45 Colt.
