Any heavy 38 Special Stallion or Cimarron P Jr. shooters out there?

I can find little info from volume shooters of the Stallion or P Jr. (38 Spec.). Can anyone point me in the direction of some info about their accuracy, handling, etc.?

I have a Cimarron P Jr that I got Dec 25 2005
I love the little gun, shoots great, handles great for me.

Anything info you want to know that I can help with, I would be glad to.

Tanx Tink!

I have yet to touch one of these down-sized single actions, but am intrigued. Know anything to compare the 'Stallion' to the 'P Jr.'? (fit/finish/cost?)

My interest comes from handling normal-sized single actions - when chambered for .357, they seem to pick-up too much weight and lose the balance of the same gun in a .45. Have you any thoughts along those lines? Any supplier you recommend?

And Thanks again! Glad to hear you're enjoying the Jr..

I have not seen the “Stallion” so I can’t compare them.
The size is about like the old Colt DA Lightning. If you like that
size gun then you will like the P jr.

The P jr. is about 20% smaller then the Colt.
It’s a very nice little gun but it is little.
It is the balance that is what sold me on the gun to begin with.

If what you are looking for is a fun little well balanced pistol, that
is what it is.

To bad you don’t live a little closer to SD, then you could see mine.
I got mine at my local gunshop.

Tanx again.

OK - I'm convinced I have to see and handle one.

AAMF, a good friend from here has invited us down to SD for a visit. (Don't rmember which town but its not too far.) Too many things on our plate to plan it yet, but will maybe be in touch if-and-when, k?

Glad you like it! Take care.

Cimarron Jr and new model Lightning owner here...

they're great pistols. got em so a gf could shoot em in CAS.
they're holding up well... model P jr is 3 years old / Lightning is about half that age and still going strong.

If you're looking for the nicest ones, Cimarron sells a prettier gun, but they're mostly all Uberti.
