It sure would be nice if a new owner could take detailed and close up photos of one and post them here. I don't know of any pro gun reviewer who has reviewed one yet.  ???

Hello in the Camp! 

Even though you boys don’t hear/see me much, trust me, I’m still making eye tracks over your experienced and knowledgeable writings! 

I just had to jump on and ask U.S.M.R., and any others with input, about this post:

Interesting thought. Get American in.44 get.38 Schofield cylinder chamber it for.44 American fiddle with bullet diameter a little put screw in ejector housing drill oil hole and you have early American.

Is the reason for a .38 Schofield cylinder, because it is shorter from extractor to cylinder face, thus allowing for a longer ejector housing and thereby improving protection when using black powder?

And can someone point me to “the oil hole?” (Keep it clean, cowboys.  ;D ). I like pictures.  Saves me from finding someone who can read...  ;)

The reason for the .38 Special cylinder is because it could be rechambered to .44 American. The oil hole is on the bottom of the ejector housing and was for oiling the ejector. The screw is on the side and held the ejector in place. My post was a thought if you wanted an American as authentic as you could do.

It really is a shame they didn't just make them for the .44 S&W American in the first place. It is easy enough to make from .41 magnum brass. I have a Remington rolling block that shoots it quite well.

I have had a Cimarron No3 first model American for a few months.. I have fired approx 500 rds through it.. I really like this pistol.

Very fine sights ( more so than a first gen Colt saa) mine shoots a little low , but windage is on the money... I have even carried mine on the streets of Tombstone.. although in a back pack  ;D

 A little update on Uberti's American production.  Cimarron's latest inventory listing for dealers indicates that they received 5" models in 44-40 and 44 Spcl, as well as more 8" 45's.  Those 44's may all be spoken for with backorders, I don't know, but at least the Italians are starting to make them.

There were a variety of other guns that came in from Uberti, so hopefully they are back to work in Italy.

Thanks for the update, Dave!  Hope the 8" .44's come in soon.

Hi Bob.  I'm guessing they probably will bring in a few in nickle, since they do so with the Schofield and Russian.  And their inventory spreadsheet does have a Nickled column for the American.  Those would be nickled by Uberti and no telling when they might get any.  However, unless it has changed you can special order pretty much any gun  in nickle, and they send the gun to Ford Plating in Florida.   It does add a few months of waiting and special orders require 50% deposit.

Quite a few showing up on GB, some with prices in the 900s.  The 5" looks very attractive in that configuration.

Owning Schofields in both the 5" and 7" versions, the 5" is so much better balanced, both weight wise and visually.

I was particular interested in the Avenging Angel  piece, "Brigham Young & the Crossdraw Kid".
Seems to me I have some knowledge and history in that area  ;D

Way better quality finish than nickel from Uberti. I have some Cimarron custom order Model Ps with Fords nickel plating and they are beautiful finished guns. Side by side they are night and day difference from a standard Uberti nickel plated gun.

FWIW, according to someone with a new one in .45 Colt the cylinder length is 1.554".
