Thanx for the compliments. She is purdy. I couldn't put it down last night. It "clicks so perfect" I felt like Tuco when he was in the store changing out parts until he got it to sound just right. :lol:

I've never handled one of these before last night. It took me a minute to discover the second hammer position that allows the cylinder to rotate for loading/unloading. :oops:

The stock is just the right color. It matches the other wood grips on my SIGs. I really wanted to get this gun in Charcoal Blue,



but the "matching" rifle (1873 18.5" Texas Brush Popper) I ordered doesn't come in Charcoal Blue. Cimarron said the would send the rifle off and have the dark blue removed and the Charcoal put on... for a price and long wait... nah.

After I ordered this one I saw where they make a matched set of revolvers with the same serial number except one has an R and one has an L after the number. If I would have ordered those I would have had to get 45 Colt though. I have nothing against 45 Colt, I just don't want to add another caliber to my inventory. I already have some 38spl's and I can shoot that in this one.

What's the word on dry firing a SA revolver from Uberti?

Well I have 2 Uberti's and have'nt seen any problem with dry firing yet. Does yours have the firing pin in the hammer? Thats the main place to keep a look at.

If you have a floating firing pin, it is inadviseable to dry fire. Floating firing pins are the kind that look a little loose and usually have a spring loaded piece under the pin, lower on the hammer.

My firing pin is part of the hammer. Thanx for the comments.

Have ya'll heard of the "Evil Earl" trigger job? (sounds pretty corney huh?) Evidentally it is a job done by Cimarron. The triiger feels great to me the way it is, and I don't plan on cowboy shooting for a while so I think I'm good the way it is now.

Wow. I was surfing around looking for info on the Evil Roy trigger job...

I just found out that THSS meets less than 30 minutes from my house! And in Fredricksburg (where Cimarron is located).

I had never heard of Gunsmoke Texas! My wife and I have been to Columbus (just a mile from Gunsmoke) tons of times. We had no idea it was there.
