Has anyone else heard about Cimarron Arms doing a "Roosevelt" model consisting of a half round/half oct short mag? I've been trying to get on their website and I've been hitting glitches and failures to get on and haven't seen anything from "Shot 2018" either...........anyone??

The other day a friend sent me a short clip of the shot show and the Cimarron guy had one and showed it a bit said it was coming out soon . Was checkered  and engraved laser I think, and HRHO 45/75 wcf . A real nice looking rifle . I may have to drive over to Fredricksburg  Cimarron when they are in stock . ,,,,DT

Thanks for the referral to the youtube video you mentioned. I saw the presentation, the "spokesperson" was a little on the "nudnick" side , seemed like a nice enough guy but not necessarily a spokesperson or a salesman. As to the "Roosevelt" reproduction it looked pretty nice.  They had cased colored frame and was engraved to boot. Both the buttstock and the fore-end were checkered and it had a high gloss finish to it. Naturally, it had a button mag which the spokesman referred to as a "bullnose".....?  But it was a really long and big gun. I was hopeful that the barrel would've been shorter more like the carbine or even the "presidio" model, but I guess they did exactly what the Teddy gun was. Seemed a bit ungainly and unwieldy ..............I have to see it up close I think as whether I'd lay down the cash for this one. I love the several rifles that other members on this page have done with short rifles and button mags and I suppose I was hopeful that there would be one that made it to production. Just my two cents. Again thanks for the referral. Regards

I never heard him say the barrel length  on that one , but it did look long . Didn't see the but plate on the Uberti , the TR original had a Shotgun But . On my two  button mag 1876 Win. rifles the 50/95 has a 24" barrel shoots great and handles great . The little parts gun I built  has a short forearm and 22" round barrel in 45/60 wcf handles like a dream , still working up a good load for it , but its showing promise. I look forward to seeing the production gun Cimarron comes out with . ,,,DT

I'm curious about this one too.  I've been a fan of TR for quite a number of years and I think a repro of one of his rifles would be cool.  On the other hand, his were almost all custom rifles, "stocked and sighted to suit myself", as he used to say.  I think that TR and I would differ in what would "suit" us.  You're right that he strongly favored shotgun butts and half-magazines.  The shotgun butt is fine, but I generally like full magazines.  He also like engraving and often had some kind of presentation plate on the stock.  Some of those just had engravings of animals, but he often gave rifles as gifts and had that info engraved on the plates.  I admire engraved guns, but I tend to prefer plain guns myself.

I haven't seen the video mentioned.  Does someone have a link?

I have a couple of George Madis Winchester books that show the TR 1876 Winchester  45/75  rifle in great detail . The rifle is a beautiful piece . There is another 1876 Winchester that he gave someone as a presentation rilfe , it was a 40/60 wcf and looked a lot like the 76 he made famous . One of many he gave away . There was a time that I wouldn't even give a half mag. a second look , its funny I still like my 76 rifles as standard full length full mag rifles  , but can say I have acquired a taste for the half mags or button mags  also. Heck my newest old 76 is a Extra Heavy barrel full mag . 45/75 that weighs a ton. I like it too.,,,,DT

I am very partial to half magazine Winchesters. My favorite "walk around the ranch" rifle is an 1892 44wcf with button mag, full length round barrel, rifle butt, Lyman 21 rear. Youngest daughter's favorite is a Winchester 53 25-20 which is just a 92 with button mag and shotgun butt. I like model 64's and 55's. But I feel like I captured the flag when I got the 1876 45-75 with a button mag, full length octagon barrel, rifle butt, Lyman sights front and rear. It feels so much better balanced to me. I have the exact same gun except with a full length magazine and I prefer to carry the button mag gun. We all have regrets about the guns we didn't buy when we saw them and had the money.  Mine are a button mag 1873 and a button mag 1886.  oh well.
So Dusty If they have a Roosevelt model to look at in Fredyburg, we can meet at the Art post office some day and go look at it. I may "need" one.
