Sam Bass became an outlaw when he took on his first train job in Big Spring Station, Nebraska. The gang stole around $60,000 and Sam Bass quickly headed back to Texas. From then on he spent his life on the run. He formed the Sam Bass gang which focused on robbing trains and stage coaches in the Texas area. With his notorious lifestyle, he attracted a lot of attention from the law. The Texas Rangers started the chase in hopes to collect the reward and stop these outlaws. On several occasions the Texas Rangers were in close encounters but were never able to catch the gang. This time period has been referred to as the Bass War. In Round Rock, Texas, there was a shootout between his gang and the rangers. Sam Bass ended up getting wounded in the shootout and was captured. His life ended early at the age of 27. It is this legacy of being outlaw that has lead us to create 27 numbered revolvers.
This Ruger Super Blachawk revolver is a single action .44 Magnum that is plated in 24 Karat Gold. The engravings capture his legacy of train robberies and stage coach robberies.
