Last summer a local gun shop got in on trade a "new in box" Cimarron Pietta Eleminator 8 45 Colt. I looked it over carefully and it may have been unfired but there were a number of queersome details that told me it had been messed with and maybe had a few problems. But it was a beautiful gun and one that was suppose to be competition tuned. And the price was more in line with common Colt clones.
Some of the major differences are that it has 60 Army size grip frame and the checked grips have an attractive fleur-de-lis pattern. The hammer is a low, wide and short stroke. The barrel is a distinctive octagon shape. Inside there is a hammer stroke stop screw that I didn't expect. Some features not found on Uberti are a replaceable firing pin bushing and replaceable cam on hammer.
But alas, the Eliminator 8 was only offered a couple of years. It was to be an ultimate Cowboy Action Shooting competition gun coming with all the whistles and bells and factory tuned. But there must have been a lot of problems with them. Some customers seemed to be happy with them. Others were not so lucky and returned them for repair or refund.
