Winter finds me spending more time inside at the laptop while watching shows. It's a dangerous combo, as I peruse the inter webs too much. Finding this online a few months ago and being curious as to the quality, I traded a few gift cards and cashed in customer points for it, around $600 if I remember correct. Life would be far cheaper if I'd just go outside and lay in a snowbank. I have no idea if ole Teddy even had one like this. I know he had a few nice engraved guns that this could be modeled after, who knows.....

The engraving isn't bad for computer laser work but it's NOTHING like old school hand engraving. Most of it is embellished nicely with a few spots where it looks like they just stuck something there to fill a void. The scrimshawed plastic grips look a little cheesy. The fit and finish is actually pretty good and the action is really smooth, nice distinct clicks and a decent trigger pull. The BP cylinder pin screw is tacky and I really don't like it, so I'll have to track down a nickel screw to replace it perhaps. The one piece plastic grips are a first for me but they actually feel decent, unlike last century's plastic junk.

I didn't get it to admire, although it's not bad really. I got it to bang around, shoot a lot (both at the range and at the TV, hopefully not at the same time), leave laying on the table by the fire pit and just because....never really needed much of another reason I suppose. I only own one Uberti (10mm) and now this Cimarron/Pietta. Gotta say, for the price and build quality, really pretty darned good for what you pay.

Nice guns. Congrads! I had two. They both shot great. Jim Martin talked me out of one of them. The laser engraving copied Roosevelt's original 7.5", 44-40 for the most part. His was gold and silver plated with carved ivory. He pretty much wore it out while in the Dakotas. My first one, that Jim got, shot a bit left. The other one is dead nuts on.

No kidding! That's great to see TR's original gun! Still waiting on a day to hit the range and see if it's dead on or slightly left....maybe Jim wants two. :LOL:
