Cowboy gun lovers step inside, Cimarron Model P

This is my first purchase of the new year, a Cimarron Model P, 5.5" barrel, chambered in .45 Colt. Case hardened finish, one piece walnut grip.

Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but I hope to be able to do that today.

So far, I just like fondling it

I would like to get one like that but in the sherriffs model with the birdseye grip and 3-1/2 in barrel to go with my Ruger Bisley Vaquero .357 mag! Nice gun there!

Arrrggggh. Local outdoor range is closed for one more weekend, so I wasn't able to shoot it. The fondling will have to tide me over for another week...


Oh yeah, and now I gotta find a nice lever action carbine in .45 Colt to go along.

Range Report!

Well, there is good news and bad news. First the good news. It seems to shoot nice groups with my standard load of 8.0 to 8.5 grains of Unique, under a 255 gr. LSWC.

The bad news is, the groups are waaaay low and to the left.

The first target was my first 12 shots at about 30 feet. POA was the center bull. Nice grouping with no flyers, but low and to the left.



Then I moved the target out to 50 feet, and shot using a center bull POA, but none of them were on the paper. I put up a new target, with a sticky dot, again at 50 feet, and used the dot as my point of aim. As you can see, the group opened up a bit (probably due mostly to the fact that I can hardly see that dot at 50 feet in the dark indoor range, and the gun was not rested), and the POI was even further down and to the left, as would be expected. Next 6 shots were in at 25 feet, POA was the top left corner of the target, to see if I could hit the sticky dot. As you can see, really good group, just nowhere near POA.




I talked to the guys in the store about this and they gave me a couple of options. They mentioned heavier bullets to bring the POI up a bit, but honestly I don't want to shoot 300 grain bullets out of this gun. I can file the front site to accomplish the same thing. For the shooting left, they said I *might* be able to bend the front blade to the left a bit, or open up the rear sight channel on the right side. Neither of these sound like great options to me. They gave me Cimarron's number and told me they were really nice to work with, and that they might be willing to take the gun back and index the barrel.

Does that sound like the best option to you guys? Any other suggestions?

Sweet gun. I bought the exact same gun but with the black grips.
