I've got a Cimarron 7½" .44Colt that I'm in love with. Shoots to the sights and is a lot of fun. Had it stocked in one-piece TruIvory. Got some nice case colors on it too. As you can see, it's also perfectly timed. The bolt rises right into the leede, no ring.

Now that is a nice looking example. I got the fever and bought a Taylor OT in .45 Colt and an 1860 conversion in .44 Special is on order.

Thank you kind sirs! It shoots great and is a hell of a lot of fun. I did a spring swap and a little stoning on the action, it's fairly slick. I need to get back into it, I can feel the handspring dragging over a little something.

Which reminds me, I need to send my Cimarron 1860 Richards Type II grip frame off for some TruIvory too!
