In 1836, Texas having won its independence from Mexico formed the Republic of Texas. In 1839, the Texas Government contracted with Ames Mfg.Co. for 280 M1833 "Texas" Dragoon Sabers. These are exactly like the 1833 US Dragoon Saber except for the blade inscription, which is "TEXAS DRAGOONS" in script. Overall length 40", blade length is 34". Our fine replica comes complete with steel scabbard and has two rings for attachment to a saber belt.
