Maybe with a 3 1/2 inch barrel and set up for Moon Clips.  Maybe.  Maybe not.

Has anyone noticed that the original post was in October of 2018. I just checked the calendar and it is October of 2019. Good thing they aren't rushing this into production prematurely (smile).

With tongue planted firmly in cheek,
Dave

FWIW, a European on another forum handled one of these and shared that Uberti did not copy the original's rack & pinion ejection system, but rather opted to use their current Schofield system.

Does anyone have an update of the release date of these revolvers?  Early next year?

I have to decide on this or possibly a USFA US made SAA?  One or the other but not both.

So any info from Cimarron?

Get the US made USFA.

I fully admit my prejudice on this subject. I love the fit, finish and feel of the late production USFA guns. They are the equal of the best SAAs Colt ever produced.

YMMV,
Dave

I emailed Val at Cimarron and here is the response:

"We are still waiting for the gun to pass the ATF drop test.  If it passes, and it should, it will be early to mid summer."

BTW, while I see the banner on their website says 45 Colt, 44-40, and 44 Russian / Spcl, I have noticed that there are no 44-40 currently on order.  Also, not many of the 5" models, so if someone wants one of those I'd suggest getting on the waiting list.

Life is not fair!
Just learnt that the first batch of seven (7) only Uberti S&W Americans - 8" barrel, .45 Colt cal. - arrived at the German importer's warehouse for distribution.

Well just as a joke 'Just how the 'h$ll' high are they dropping these guns, that they still have not hit earth/ground since October 2018'?

On a more serious note, have the guns been failing the testing since Oct 2018?  What have they had to change on them and are they the same as originally advertised or as original Americans?  Did they have to add a load of safety features to past?

Just curious do not expect you to contact them.  I just would like to make that final decision soooon.

Dave T,
I appreciate your comments and remember our conversation back in '16 or so over on the USFA site.  While I truly would like a good American made single action, I would like some 'variety in the firearms I shoot and own, just for experience sake.  It does make the decision hard as could be.

I had a message from Jake MacReedy, old time poster here and top-break fan.  I thought it interesting and will pass on what he mentioned, that years ago Mike Harvey told him that if the ASM Schofields hadn't gone south, their next model was to be the American.

I will back up what Abilene just said.  At least with this one, we know the quality will be good!

For the "purists" out there, when they finally arrive, pick up an American in .44 Russian, and add a lanyard ring.  It will look like this photo from page 220 of Pate's book on the American Revolver (I highly recommend this book!).  Notice this Old Old/First Model Russian has a First Model American frame, the hammer interlock and a lanyard ring.

Regards,
Jake

VTI Gunparts had the lanyard ring from the Uberti 3rd Model Russian in stock, so I ordered one from them and received it today.  My name is on the list for one of the Americans, once they finally make it to our shores!  And I have my lanyard ring ready to install (sitting on the cover of Pate's great book on the American).
