Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy !!!!!
« on: January 17, 2020, 03:47:29 pm »

A while back, Pietta started making a Replica 1878 Hammer Double.  Was announced by EMF (Naturally) and I was real impressed by the initial (thought Poor) Photos.  Intrigued as it twer. 

Today, some earlier, I saw a YouBoob of some guy from Serbia on a tour of the Pietta Factory.  Tail end of the presentation was the "guide" at Pietta showing off the Replica 1878.  Nice.  Really NICE!!

I believe, in fact, it is made from pure, unadulterated gottahaveieum.  I feel I will soon, again, have a Gun Fund out shaking a Tin Cup.  I absolutely have to have one.  GOTTAHAVEIEUM.

Well, Now that I have been bitten by the New Shotgun Bug.  Something I should know, but if I did I don't remember.

Does anybody know for sure ... Whom is making the "Deluxe 1878" for Cimarron???  I know the gun isn't Chinese but don't recall whom makes it.  A weak mind needs to know   :o

The "Deluxe" '78 from Cimarron is by Daudson (Pakistan).

Thanks Abilene   ;D

Just what I needed/wanted to know sorta remember. 

I admit to having to think about it.  The Cimarron example is a tad less money than the Pietta.  Of course both are a TAD less money than my Pedersoli.  But really, I currently NEED a New Hammer Double.  Absolutely   ::)

And here I thought the Cimarron version was made in Turkey. Not sure Pakistan is an improvement.

Looking forward to seeing and reading more about this Pietta version. I have a silly fondness for hammer doubles.
