Billy Dixon carried an 1873 Springfield Trapdoor U.S. Model Officers Rifle while serving as civilian scout for the U.S. Army during the Red River Indian Wars. On September 12, 1874, Dixon was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for heroism during the battle of Buffalo Wallow. The Cimarron Officers Model is a faithful reproduction of Dixon’s original rifle that is on display at the PANHANDLE PLAINS MUSEUM in Canyon, Texas.
