Traditions Performance Firearms – known for their muzzleloaded rifles – is adding a couple of single action revolvers by Pietta to their line. Both the higher end Frontier models and budget priced Rawhide guns are updated from the original 1873 six shooter design with transfer bar safeties. The Frontier’s available in case color, blued and shiny nickel. You can get the Rawhide value model in any color you want as long as it’s black. Annoyingly, they don’t include pricing info in their press release which is reprinted after the jump . . .
Old Saybrook, CT (March 2013) – Traditions™ Performance Firearms introduces into their 2013 lineup single action revolvers by Pietta. The single actions will be available in two series – the Frontier series and the Rawhide series.
The Frontier Series showcases all our top quality features and finishes. This series is available in many different calibers and barrel lengths including 4.75”, 5.5”, and 7.5”. While they all have steel frames, a selection of finishes are available including color-case hardened, blued, and nickel. Grip options are walnut or white PVC. Traditions™ always put safety first and has equipped their single actions with a transfer bar safety system which provides the highest level of safety offered on an 1873 single action firearm.
The Rawhide Series offers today’s single action shooters quality and features at an affordable price. The revolver’s matte black finish is attractive and provides excellent corrosion resistance. The transfer bar safety is also incorporated on the Rawhide series single actions. This series is available in a selection of calibers and barrel lengths as well.
