I don't know about internals but I have tried to mix and match barrels between Uberti, Colt C-Series and Colt Signature Series and none of them would fit on anything other than themselves. Maybe they would interchange if you reset the alignment pins.

As I said, the problem with mine isn't unloading while cocking, it's unloading while shooting.

Looks like someone has a few harder-to-find parts on the 'bay: upper block, complete lock, etc.

Prices? soccer skills world cup Well, you have to decide how badly you need it.
Do you have a link to introduce it?
This carbine was fired by Indians till out of ammo then dumped in hay stack. Passed down every since.

Open loading ports were quite common on pocket pistol conversions. Trick is not to point them to the sky while cocking the piece. Tilt the pistol below horizontal while cocking; Bob's yer Uncle. The original itty-bitty front sight is the 'shoots high' problem. My old eyes couldn't see the damn thing for shyte! I replaced it with a Pietta 1851 Navy cone sight from Dixie Gun Works. I also open-up the hammer notch to reveal the new front cone sight. I'll post some pics next week when I return home from my current road trip. 
The longer barrel was necessary to get it through the 'Saturday Night Special' importation bans. The ban is based on 'points' assigned to overall size, weight and modern cartridge (.380 ACP) chambering.  Same silly regulation that stopped Walther PPK importation. They created the PPKS; slightly longer grip and barrel length to pass the regulation.

Ah My Dear Coffin

Since we moved last year my shop is still packed and/or still in the prior workshop ( lathe, mill, bandsaws, table saw, drill press, etc)
Thus I thought I might be able to jumpstart my thunderbirdball percussion projects.

Thank you for your reply,  especially with regards to the lack of interchangability!

But at least I can has cheezeburger! My bloodwork numbers indicate I can safely handle one a day with no issues!

Good luck on your efforts

 :) The Good Perfesser  ;)

Well.  Well well.  As the world turns, it seams I lied.  Bald Face and straight up.  Well, not quite.  Just sorta.  Maybe a little mistaken.  As it twer.

I went perusing and remembered why I initially went for the Cimarron offering.  I desperately wanted that super duper Trix lower wider Hammer.  And I wanted the Octagonal Barrel and it positively HAD TO BE a .45.  So there!

Reviewing the Situation (stolen famous movie line), I went back to EMF to confirm how badly I screwed up.  Well.  It is correct, EMF has the same same gun, Octagonal barrel and all, with Plow Handle grip set, but with Stand Up hammer (I now know I kneed) and (deal breaker) in .357.  Curses, Foiled Again (stolen famous cartoon line).

Now I have considered the future.  I may wish to hawk theses guns to a future care taker and think I should be able to offer them "as original."  Ergo, must retain the non-fitting Grip Set and Unusable Hammer inna box for a future possessor.  I do, however appreciate your kind and generous offer to separate me from the offending pieces.  The grips, with laser engraved Cimarron Logo are quite striking.  Also:

The biggest hinderance to swapping Percussion Gun Grip Sets to a Suppository shooter are the Screws.  The screw head size is some different.  Don't enquire how I happen to know this Fact.

:) Hey Lou  ;)

Just as an aside and FYI, those "Dark Spots" on the original Butt Stock are not wood imperfections.  The spots are the result of "Machine Chatter" which leaves tiny little divots.  The Pantographing Router got a little bit loose.

Coffinmaker, thanks for the info. I knew they were not wood imperfections. I wasn't sure if it was where wood was pulled out during the CNC milling process or during the sanding process. I just know it made divots that were deeper than the surface and when the finish was applied the divots turned darker. I have seen something similar when finishing muzzleloading kits.
