Uberti/Cimarron Colt .44 1860 Revolver

Snagged a Uberti/Cimarron Colt .44 1860 Revolver on Gunbroker. I put in a bid at a low price which was just enough to trip the reserve and i'll be darned if it didn't stick and i WON! This pistol normally sells for $340 and i snagged it for $226 and not to mention it's new and unfired. Love the smell of black powder in the morning!

Nice! I'm still hoping to snag a sidelock for kicking around in the yard. The 1860 is my favorite though.

Congrats!

The design of the BP revolvers....

....specifically the 1860 and the fact that 150 years later we still look at this revolver as a thing of beauty is a tribute to the vision of Colt's operation.

I do about 90% of my job at the computer, and I must admit that there are times when I just drag out one of my revolvers and just set it on the table next to the keyboard. It seems I just have a desire to be close to one of them for a time.

If I looked at a million pictures of 1860 revolvers, when I looked at the million and first picture I would still say, "Dang, That is a purdy pistol"

The Cimarron was a nice find, SS.

That was a nice deal there. Now you will have to buy another pack of bugler papers and load ammo for the thing and tell us how it shoots.

I have a couple uberti's and a couple of the Cimarron Uberti's. This is the only comparison i can make but from what i can tell, the Cimarron's have a smoother trigger, nicer wood grain design in the grips and the heat treated frames have a more appealing "look" to the metal.

Overall I feel you can't go wrong with a plain Uberti as their just as reliable and I enjoy the one's i have. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a Taylor's Uberti either. Love em' all !

Welcome to the forum Jhamrick.

I hope to have it out tomorrow as it looks like the weather is going to be nice. I just made some felt wads today and casted some round ball for it.
