They arrived yesterday. Initial inspection looks good... first 100 has all of the anvils.

I may get to load a few later today.

The Longbranch / How is Cimarron customer service?
« Last post by Gundogblue on February 23, 2024, 04:41:12 PM »
Hi all,
I posted in another area about my new Cimarron 1873 short rifle. The gun is beautiful. I bought the gun from my smith/ FFL. When the gun came in upon inspection it had a very small crack in the stock, where the wood meets the reciever!I initially was just going to blow it off as the crack was so small, but the smith told me as I shoot it, the crack will worsen and it should be sent back. My smith handled everything. Cimarron told my smith over the phone that they would just send me a new rifle, and they emailed my smith a paid return authorization. Cimarron received the gun on Feb 15, now it’s only been 6 working days since they received the gun. But I’ve read some pretty bad things about Cimarron’z customer service. I realize complaints travel faster than satisfied people. But I figure if anybody would know how good Cimarron customer service is it would be you guys who are really into Cimarron. Taylor’s, Uberti etc. I was thinking even though they told my smith over the phone that they would just send me a new rifle,  that could change and they may instead opt to repair the crack, which  is fine with me as long as it’s done  right and not noticeable! So I’d appreciate any experience’s  y’all have had with Cimarron  customer service, and how long should I wait before I contact Cimarron on a status of the rifle?
Thanks Much
Paul

I'm going to enter a suggestion.

Consider 2" Velcro, I know self-stick Velcro adhesive will stick to the Pelican case.
I used to do it all the time on road cases. ( just use rubbing alcohol or acetone on the area and stick the Velcro down when dry)

Use your Contact cement on the leather & Velcro to join them....
It will hold like iron to the case, but also removeable.

Benefits = quick change leather tags, optional changes to said tags, options etc.

My roadie cases have traveled thousand miles nary a lift at any glued joint. 

Just my 2 cents

Another consideration is that if the glue doesn't hold fast, you may have to rivet the corners of the tags down. If that's what you have to do, you might want to seal the rivets on the inside with epoxy or JB Weld to make them fully waterproof.

I have found that today's Barge doesn't hold very well compared to the old formulation. Master Contact Cement holds like Barge used to. It's intended for shoe construction and repair. I've switched to that for all my leather purposes.



It will help to score the surface of the box under the leather tags a bit to give "tooth" and better adherence.
Definitely roughen the area to be glued like River City John says.

The one gun store in our area that carries primers is at $129 per 100.  But he has been known to wear a mask when he robs you.  :P
I'm guessing there is a missing zero or a missing decimal point in there somewhere  :D .

I did not run out with the recent shortage but was getting low.  I shoot CAS every weekend so figure 500 rounds a month plus shotgun.  So I have been stocking up and am now set for the next few years.  There is a Bass Pro and a Cabelas that I am occasionally near, but their prices are usually not great plus a limit.  I keep an eye on the big online retailers for price and availability, plus deals.  I've bought a lot from Natchez.  All the big retailers have free shipping or free hazmat deals regularly.  Those save a little.  It is always more cost-effective if you are buying larger quantities and/or getting powder on the same order.  But once every month or two they have 10% discount.  If you are buying 10K primers, that adds up to a much bigger saving than the free hazmat or shipping (the last time I did it, hazmat was $23, shipping was $20).  The best prices I've seen on Federal, my preference, has been $74.99/K.  I prefer magnum small primers, for a while they were cheaper than standard but lately have been higher.  I did buy some CCI small rifle primers (most of y'all know those are the same as small pistol - small rifle magnum are NOT the same as small pistol magnum).  And those worked fine in my guns, although I think I did turn in the strain screw on my '73 a half-turn.  CCI's used to be the hardest primers, but not any more.

Those Normas may be just fine, depending on if your guns have lighter springs.  Since my choice of Federals is available, I'm fine paying some more for the peace of mind.    I did try some Ginex primers from Argentina.  They were a little harder than the Federals and I did have to increase the main spring tension another half-turn on the strain screw for those.

Nice Rifle!!  Your links appear to be from Pioneer Gunworks.  I'd suggest giving them a call and ask if they can make you a longer set of links.  It also appears the Carrier Block Arm isn't lifting the Carrier Block all the way up.
