Not that I'm interested in buying it, just driving me crazy I can't figure out who made it? I'm sure one of the experts here will immediately recognize it so appreciate cluing me in. My best guess is Cimarron with barrel markings removed/added? Listing says nickel but looks like stainless to me? Early model before Colt threatened lawsuit ? (seeing as how it is marked "Colt"). Thanks for the help.

The description says it's a non-firing replica. I doubt it's a Cimarron.
Thanks. The non-firing part has been added since I first looked and asked the auctioneer the manufacturer. No response but I'm glad they updated the listing. Now it looks like a pretty nice cap gun!

The screw that holds the ejector rod housing goes right through the barrel. Other than that I thought it was a nice looking replica. I first thought it would make a great gun to practice twirling but the bidding went up to high for me.

Good Spot! Don't know if it's my bad eyes or crappy monitor but I had to zoom way in to see the screw. Thanks for the eye lesson.

There is one with the same serial number on Ebay right now. I have to assume the number matches one of bat masterson's custom ordered pieces.

This may be that exact piece. It has the same mark on the right side below the loading gate.

Yup. 112737. The quality of the eyes of the members of this board is amazing!

Bat Masterson is correct
