    Uberti / Cimarron Base Pin- Soft

    Went shooting today and seems in howwe gave my brother's son-in-law the Cimarron I had which was the old stylr with base pin screw, but had the new style trigger.
    My brother bought a couple of Pietta's, so I now have his Cimmarron Model P.

    I wanted to remove the cylinder and base pin no move, I pushed it back, its the safety type, snapped the hammer and it moved forward. You could see a ridge on the end from slamming into the base pin nut which seems fine.
    So I want to replace the base pin. Belt Mountain does not list Colt base pins only Ruger, as I did a search and found a post.

    Now VTI has Uberti base pins. The one in this Model P has too much play at the groove so the problem is not fixable without a replacement. I suppose I can just get an Uberti pin w/o the additional safety notch.

    That is disappointing news about Belt Mountain not selling Colt base pins.

    I believe I will email to enquire what prompted the change.

    If this base pin has the double notches grind off the rear of the base pin so it will let the hammer come down against the frame allowing the front notch to lock the base pin in,that notch may fit tighter but no guarantee,@ least the gun will be working again until u can locate a new base pin.
    Monsai52 and sturmgewehr like this.

    What an excellent idea, I didn't think about that yet. Thanks Jim.
    Well I did stick the base pin in a drill press and file the peened ridge off, so the revolver is functional, but
    I might order a replacement from VTI just to have one.

    Hmm, okay. I did go back to their site and saw no Colt / clone base pins just to be sure. But if they will have them soon good.
    While I do think that the base pin in my Uberti is probably not the norm even for current Uberti's, and a replacement is not that much, a good quality replacement would be nice.

    I couldn't remember who had sold them, I went to Brownell's, and did a search of posts and Belt mountain popped up. It did seem odd that they would stop making them considering the number of older Colt's as well as repros out here in pistolero world.

    Edit: Was just back at Belt Mountain and saw the roll down for different the different makes/models. Not sure which style I might want, but assume the Colt will be compatible with the Uberti. Price seems good to.

    Ther's a couple of Colt base pins on ebay for $161.XX

    For a Uberti get the Colt standard base pin.

    Some of the parts on my Uberti were not properly hardened, mainly the hand. Hammered back into the proper shape I heated and quenched the affected end of the part.
