    Nice work. Nice guns. Clearly, should my resolve weaken and I opt for a Cimarron 5.5" pre-war frame, I should have no reservations about shootability.

    I've been loading my own SO long I don't have any idea what factory ammo costs. I know my own stuff costs VERY little. I buy bullets, powder, and primers in bulk . With mild loads the brass lasts a long time.

    I really like the Cimarron Mdl P in competition ready guns. I have a Evil Roy in. 38/.357 and it is fantastic. Sights, trigger, finish are all better. Accurate and fun to shoot. Also have a Taylor's Smoke Wagon. Same song but in .45 Colt.
    Also have a Cimarron .44 Special. Great gun just not as refined as other comp. models.

    I recently picked up a black powder frame model P in 44 special. I started shooting 44 caliber exclusively about 1970. Love 44 specials. I have many including Smith & Wesson, Colt, Ruger, and now Cimarron. I load my own and make my own jacketed and cast bullets. There's just two kind of people, those that shoot 44s and those that wish they did.

    I got my first Colt SAA back in 1982 that was chambered in 44 special. Since then I have acquired others in 44-40, 45 Colt and 38/357 and I have to wonder why the 44 special is not more popular with shooters regardless of the brand of the gun. One day my favorite SAA caliber is 45 Colt and the next day its 44 special. I feel that the 44 special has the edge in accuracy and ease of reloading.

    Nice shootin' Dane...!!

    I too enjoy the .44 Special cartridge...but all my .44's handguns are Magnums...in which I shoot the Specials on occasion.

    I find the Cimarron Uberti's to be pretty accurate right outta the box...next one I buy with be a replica of the S&W Model 3 Schofield.

    Currently this is is my only Cimarron...a close enuff copy of the Remington 1875...but in .45 Colt /.45 ACP.

    Looking at different grip options now...
