Trying to find and purchase a 4-click Cimarron on the auction sites.  Is there any way to tell from typical auction photos 1)Pietta or Uberti? and 2)4 click or 3 click? 

Thanks,
Jim

If it's a prewar Uberti you are going to need to check the date code. I'm trying to remember when the change took place but it's been a few years now. If you buy the model P old model (black powder frame) they still have the old style action. Buds has them in stock, a friend of mine just bought one from them and they have plenty more he said.

First up - Pietta are for the most part "4" click guns.  Pietta does market a model that has a Transfer Bar (alla Ruger).  The transfer bar guns aren't real common but auction site photos probably won't show that feature.

Next up - Uberti.  Good Luck.  If the gun is really new build, it WILL have that stupid Firing Pin safety thingie.  Photos WILL NOT show that.  You have to trust the sellers will admit to that safety (good luck with that).

Short answer to your original question - No, not really.

First, let's talk Cimarron Ubertis: If the gun is an old model (BP frame) Cimarron, it will have the 4-click, regardless of age.  If it is a pre-war, new will all be 3-click but you will have to look closer at the used guns.  With the hammer down the 3-click will have the trigger a little further forward than 4-click, and the 1-position base pin will be fully inserted, not sticking out a little.   Keep in mine that not all ads will show the actual gun, some people use stock photos.

If it is a Cimarron Pietta, it will be 4-click whether BP frame or Pre-War.  (Same thing for EMF Great Western II's, which are the same gun other than markings).

If it is Cimarron, how to tell if it is a Pietta or Uberti?  If there is a medallion on the grip, Uberti.  No medallion could be Uberti or Pietta. If it is called a Frontier, it is Pietta.  Model P is Uberti.  If you can see a model number, starting with CA or MP will be Uberti, starting with PP will be Pietta.

Thanks Abilene ! The only "correction"  I'd make is a "Frontier" can be Uberti or Pietta. I have a Pietta Frontier.
