I recently emailed cimarron on an update about their 62 pocket police conversion, they responded by saying that they are getting one in for test and evaluation with the ATF and might soon be shipping them in upcoming months!

I emailed Cimarron the other day to ask if they were going to offer other barrel options.  The fellow said no other barrels were in the works.  He also said the release date was 1st quarter of next year.

.380 ACP, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm .38 short Colt chamber reamer might work for a more historical cartridge.

I wondered about that. Also wondered if there would be enough room for the rims, or are the chambers too close together.

From an email by Cimarron:
Last year we introduced the ’62 Pocket Navy Conversion. It was to be available in .380ACP with a 3” barrel. After months of waiting, the ATF informed us that we needed to work on the safety mechanism. We quickly responded by working with Uberti to change the safety, and resubmitted the gun for approval. Again, months of waiting… waiting until the ATF responded that the 3” barrel made the gun too light! OK!!! So now we have changed the barrel from 3” to 6” and are now on track to release this highly anticipated revolver! Cimarron's '62 Pocket Navy Conversion authentically reproduces those early, coat pocket-sized cartridge conversion revolvers, produced by the Colt factory from around 1873-1880. Available as a 6-inch round-barreled, ejectorless model, this 21st century fistful of pistol is chambered for the feisty .380ACP cartridge! This handy little, 5-shot revolver utilizes the Uberti patented firing pin safety so we can load all 5 chambers and sports a rich, historically accurate blued finish, with a color case hardened frame, brass trigger guard and back strap, and an attractive, one-piece varnished, walnut stock. Due to the 6 inch barrel we now kiddingly refer to this little gem as the ‘Pocket Buntline’.

I'd rather have the 5 shots instead of 4 shots and a empty chamber.

It's a range toy, do you really need all 5 cylinders loaded?

My experiences with the new Uberti safety is purely hearsay, so take it with a grain of salt, but I haven't seen anyone who was truly happy with it.

well, on the Uberti single actions with the new safety hammer, seems like they work fine until you start trying to shoot them fast, and then a few folks have had problems.  I wouldn't let that stop me from buying the little conversion (if I wanted one, which I don't).
