    Question about comparing Cimarron/Pietta Single actions with Colt

    I make cases as some of you know, I have a customer who has a very nice looking custom set of Cimarron/Uberti model P Single Action Army’s. They are the old Model, black powder type frame and base pin with the big round ejector not the birdseye. My question is are these the same size as the first gen Colts and the second gens or are they beefier in the frame like the late second and third gens? Anybody ever fit one of these in a case and find it is a bit too big? Never had one of these. Bill

    Pretty nice looking

    I have noticed grip frame angle seems different and over all girth of the uberti,pietta and cimarron to feel bigger than my new 3rd gen.nothing measured just over all feel is more compact with the Colt.I have heard that the Old model cimarrons that are being produced today are just about as close as it gets to 1st gen Colts.

    I have a holster that was made for the pre-war Cimarron Model P that fits a bit loose on a 3rd Gen. SAA.

    Cylinders have a slightly larger diameter on the clones made by Uberti.

    Don't know about Piettas. Cimarron/Uberti, USFA (except their US model), and Ruger mid frame cylinders are .020" larger in diameter than Colts (1st, 2nd and 3rd gens). But they just milled out the cyl window a bit larger. So the cyl width is what would change the holster fit.

    But the outside frame vertical dimension is the same at 2.505" + or - based on the variation in the hand finished thickness of the trigger guard strap in the trigger loop.

    Agreed! They look like the originals, well crafted. I called Cimmaron and talked to customer service and the guy told me the owner took his original black powder SAA and took the dimensions off the frame for these models but they dont build them here, they are assembled elsewhere but he would not say. I assume the cylinders are from there regular models.

    That's a beautiful pair of sixguns!

    Hey Bill, any problem making a case for a Uberti 1871-1872 Open Top? I've got one I had engraved that really deserves to be in one of your cases.

    image.jpgHave 3 Cimarron single action revolvers. All are excellent fit and function.
    The one pictured is a .38 WCF and is a great shooter.
