    Has anyone ever owned a Cimarron coach gun in 12 gauge? I've seen on at my local shop and has always been interested in the sxs variety, though I'm sure it'll need some custom work if I want a smoother action.

    They are made in China but are high quality. They are a reproduction oF the 1878 Colt hammer coach shotguns and are very popular in cowboy action competition shooting because of their close set hammers which allows fast dual hammer cocking. They have reduced power springs installed and don't need any extra smoothing unless you are going to use one for cowboy competition. The same gun is marketed under the EMF Co. and TTN Int. names also.

    We are not talking about a good shotgun here, but a great shotgun. You will need to slick it up only if you intend to use it in cowboy competition.

    Thanks for the feedback, gives me more confidence in buying one and shooting straight from the rack. Though I know it's a 20" barrel, I was thinking of cutting the barrel at a later date to 18"-18.5" only if the total length doesn't go under 26"

    They're solid guns, but a little heavier than most of the coach gun class. Why would you want to go to all the hassle of barrel cutting to lose an inch and a half? seems a little pointless, to me.

    But then people do pointless stuff all the time. I'm no exception.

    The closer I can get to that piece used by Dan Evans in '3:10 to Yuma', the happier I'll be ^_~

    Of course, going that far would cost me an arm and a leg, with the tax stamp and all...so I suppose discretion is a wiser choice

    I think the extra weight of the TTN/Cimarron/EMF coachgun is a positive. Some of the other brands are too light and pack a lot of recoil.

    A big +1 to that when I first got mine (my Brother got a CZ at the same time) we were out shootin' clays.He brought some 3" buckshot to pattern long story short I was not left wanting for more recoil.

    If Cimarron and EMF are the same guns, then I know a little about them as I have the EMF. Actually it is stamped TTN. And these two establishments are just down the road from each other.

    The weight does help calm the recoil a lot. Although it doesn't feel that heavy. Maybe do to its small size. Mine shoots a little high and to the left at 25 yards using #00 Buck. It is very well put together, and I like those Mule Ear Hammers, they really do work.

    Wow! I oughta be in bed, but I've been up watching the thunderstorms roll through.

    To 9mm: Don't know about the old ROSSI, but this TTN is truely a quality gun. You begin noticing it right from the beginning. When you break it open there is no forcing it like some of the others in its price range. It's ready for action.
