Cimarron Nettleton?

<< < (2/4) > >>

Interesting that the Coffinmaker doesn't want to collect the new Uberti and Pietta offerings.  He's got something in common with the citizens of the Old West, they didn't want to collect the Colt, Remington, and Smith n Wesson's back then either.  They were just gonna shoot them.


 :)  Ha  ;)

Thanks Dave T.  I'll take that a compliment actually.  Of course, I also take a lot of heat for declaring "Collecting" and "Collector Prices" for USFA offerings, with no historical value, no provenance, no famous personage, as "just another Single Action."  And over-priced at that.

I actually see them all as guns that need to be shot on a regular basis.  Why bother otherwise.

Tascosa Joe:
To me the big difference in then and now:  In the old days Colts, Remingtons, Winchesters and S&Ws were tools, not collectables.  Today our reproductions although they are nice are toys.  I doubt any of us will do anything spectacular with our toys to warrant the value of a 7th Cav Colt or Bill Hickock's Navy.
But I do love my toys.



 :)  Yea Well  ;)

I godda knit to pic.  You see, here be my take.  You take a real nice Pietta in .45 wid a 7 1/2 inch barrel.  Put and Ainsworth cartouche on the stock and it becomes an instant "Ainsworth."  Change the cartouche to Nettleton and you have an instant nettleton.  Put a couple odd stamps onnit and it's a 7th Cavalry.  Butt:  regardless,  of the changes of cartouche/stamps it's still a nice new Pietta.

Same Same applies to a Uberti.  Change all you want, you still godda Uberti.

Now, to really chap some a . . . . !!  Without some form of provenance, attaching certain Colt guns to famous occurrences, or personages, and regardless of cartouche or roll mark, it's still just another Colt.  No big deal.

USFA??  Same considerations.  Regardless of embellishments, still just another USFA.

And I am NOT OPINIONATED!!!  (actually, yes I am).  After all, I like my attitude.

It may be a bit different now, but for a long time a new military (Cavalry or Artillery) Model P Cimarron cost about $50 more than a standard model, dealer price.  On the used market, it adds about the same amount!
