    I am starting to lean more and more toward cowboy style weapons. I'm thinking about getting another revolver. Has anyone heard anything positive or negative concerning Cimarron firearms?

    I have been told and from what I have seen, Cimmaron's are pretty quality SAAs-- I haven't heard anything bad-- except a close friend that is in the local SA "Cowboy Shooters" club says the tolerances on his Cimmarons are tight--

    I would buy on eif I could-- .45LC though and not the .357/.38spl--

    Do you have a specific reason, or is it just a size preference?

    Personal opinion that the .45LC round is cooler-- probably more expensive to shoot, but cooler none the less...

    Nah, that's cool. I was pretty much leaning that way as well.

    Can't comment on the Cimarron's. I just recieved my USFA "Rebel" .45 Colt and I like it so far. US Fire Arms makes several Colt six shooter replicas in various cal's, including .38 special, .357, .44, .44 Mag. They even have one they call a commemerative "M1A Carbine" with 7.5 barrel that uses the .30 M1 Carbine round.

    Just something to compare to.

    Yeah, I know. That is their MSRP (Mfr. Suggested Retail Price) I don't know what a dealer could get you one for. They do offer a Life time warrenty for as long as you own the weapon, though.

    I actually ended up getting the .45 LC from Heritage Firearms. It's very nice, especially for the price. It's solid, and the action is nice. I didn't realize how expensive the ammunition was though. That part kind of sucks. I finally had a chance to fire it today. I only had a box of 25, so I didn't really get a real good feel of how accturate the gun itself was. It was mostly just a chance to see how accurate I was from about 20 feet away. Which I think that I did fairly well. Thank y'all for your replies though.

    Best price I've found for the .45 LC is Mag-Tech 250grn cowboy rounds from Sportsmansguide.com. But it's still hgiher than most other cal. ammo.
