First Revolver questions

First off not actually my first I have a nagant revolver and two .44 black powders that were gifts to me. Anyway I saw a Single action army with 7.5 barrel in 45c for 519 it is cimerron imported by uberti or other way around i cant remember. Is this a good buy? anyone have experience with these guns? I have always wanted a single action army

I think prices will fluctuate a bit around the country. You didn't say which model, but I'm guessing it's blued model with no slick add-ons or upgrades. That price sounds ok to me- especially if you can get it for that much out the door.

I've got 2 Uberti's- both Remington re-makes, the 1875 and the 1890. I absolutely love both of them. I haven't had the dreaded spring breakage as of yet. Maybe that was a days of old thing, I don't know- but I feel Uberti makes a good product and I'd recommend them.

I'm going to use the words "clip" and "Long Colt" every chance I get. It grinds my gears to see new members attacked when we all know dang good and well what's being refered to.

For reference, I recently saw a new (blued) Ruger Blackhawk in a local gun store for $540.
The MSRP is $610.

Uberti is the maker, Cimarron the importer. The Cimarron seems to be a cut above the other Uberti models. I have one in .44 Special and have found it to be a very good gun.

That simply denotes the barrel length.
7.5=Cavalry
5.5=Artillery
4.75=Civilian or Quick-Draw

I have 2 Cimmarons, a Model P Artillery, and a Thunderer 3.5" both in .45 Colt. Haven't had a chance to shoot the Thunderer yet, but the Model P is a favorite of mine.

519, that is very close to the price of a Ruger New Vaquero. I do like the authentic action of the Italian guns though vs the transfer bar system.
