I am looking to buy one of these in .45 Colt. Anyone here have experience with these and cowboy loads?

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.

You got to quit posting pictures of that, it well bruise my visa card!

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!
