Smith & Wesson has launched an exclusive N-Frame revolver to honor the 200th anniversary of the Texas Rangers. This limited-edition .357 Magnum revolver pays homage to the storied history and enduring legacy of one of America’s most iconic law enforcement agencies. The 200th Anniversary Edition S&W N-Frame, produced in collaboration with Davidson’s, boasts intricate custom engravings and gold inlays, and ships in a beautifully crafted wooden presentation case. The case's exterior bears the Rangers' insignia, while its interior is a dark blue velvet. A certificate of authenticity is included.

Texas Rangers Revolver and Presentation Case

This revolver features special markings and insignias to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Texas Rangers, highlighting the significance of this milestone. These include the Rangers' insignia in gold on the large frame, and the words "200th Anniversary Edition"—along with the relevant dates—on the barrel, both contrasting sharply with the gun's deep blue. "One Riot, One Ranger," graces the gun's backstrap, in homage to the famous story of Bill McDonald, an early-20th century Ranger who singlehandedly broke up an illegal boxing match. The vined engravings are in the classic Western style. The gun's front sight is a standard, classic blued blade, which aligns with a notch on the top of the frame.
