Hmm, the page at that link has no description nor picture, just the title of the model, which is model number CA8664.  When I look up that model number on an inventory list, the description is "Mdl No. 3 American, 1st Model 5" 44RUS/CLT/S&W"

Perhaps the gun is chambered for the Special but marked Colt, like some of the Opentops used to be?  Only thing I know for sure is that Cimarron's website has been a mess for some time (IMO) and it's hard to find anything, plus lots of stuff missing.

Has an 8” blued 44 (straight-wall, not 44-40WCF) been released yet?

I've been on the waiting list at Cimarron since December, 2019 for an 8" American in .44 Special/Russian.  Hope fully more will come in soon.

I won this one in an online auction yesterday (not GunBroker) which was a gun store liquidation.
Gun was listed as new but no box.

Good for you but you just made most of the people here jealous. (smile)

      Greetings!

   Stopping off at JAX Outdoors in Loveland CO to harass the Inmates, I strangely found myself in the Firearms Dept. In the glass case was an Uberti #3 American with a 5" barrel, and chambered for the .45Colt.
   I was permitted to briefly fondle it: beefy, yet wonderfully balanced; not too offended by the chambering ( Uberti is forgiven for not chambering it in the .44S&WA ); points very well.
   Hmmm. What can I sell...?

Yup, the 5" and 3" models of the S&Ws really balance nice in the hand.

   Stopping off at JAX Outdoors, Part 2... It came home with me. More to come. I truly am hopeless.

      Greetings!

   "Stopping Off at JAX Outdoors, Part III"... Well, I shot the No.3 OM .45 with a box of .45Colt handloads: in spite of a rough & creepy trigger pull, I was pulling off 2-1/2" groups at 25yds at the local indoor range, hitting just over the sights. The handload consisted of the LEE 454-255 from a batch that Dad had casted up a few years ago ( don't know the BHN, will test ), 7.8gr Alliant Unique, CCI #300 caps, misc brass, with 1.591" OAL.
   Generally, my "Go-To" .45Colt cast bullets are the Ideal / Lyman #454190, and the NEI #454-230HB, the last one being my favorite. Although this load performed well, I'm inclined to do a .45S&W handload based on the NEI bullet, 100 of which I casted this late afternoon, and the only one box of Black Hills .45Schofield brass that I have. For some reason, I'm also entertaining the thought of trimming some .45Colt brass to .45S&W length ( ".45Colt Govt." ), to try in this revolver, as well as my old Navy Arms .45Colt / 7" Schofield, which I might add, also shot very well with the LEE 454-255 handloads. We shall see...

Several years ago, I got a #3 NM it has had a steady diet of 45 Schofield.
At first OEM Black Hills, then my hand loads.
I don't recall if I've ever used 45 Colt in it  :-\

Don't know why but the 5" .44-40 Americans seem to be readily available.  I have seen several of them for sale at gun shows, on-line and a couple in LGS.  Nothing else, just 5" .44-40s.

The 5" barrels make the gun feel SO much better balanced in the hand. I love em.

Just an update but the one I got marked .44 COLT chambers .44 Russian and Special just fine.  5 inch barrel is great but I still want and 8 inch.   ::)

On Gripmaker's site, he has a chart on guns he does his fake ivory guns and a s&w american is one of them.

Just to add to my question about fake ivory grips, I have found out that Tombstone grips has them and Arizona grips on ebay (which I highly recommend) is going to have some available for this model soon.
