And as fate would have it, every Cimarron I've seen was made by Uberti so they are equal.
In any event, especially in the 58, the Uberti products are excellent.
One of the worst customer service experiences I have ever had in my life was a dealing for two revolvers from Texas Jacks. I would never do business with them again under any circumstances. Others feel differently, but not old Willie.
Both have had satisfactory customer service records, but Taylor's & Company went the extra mile. Tammy & Sue are tops at T & Co, Inc.
Taylor's & Company had Uberti Remington Navy's on their end of year sale, and I sold the last one last Sunday.
Thats what I have found also and I have had better luck with Piettas anyway
"Cimarron's revolvers have a little better finish on their Uberti's to include fire-blue finish on the screw heads."
Not all, some. It depends on the finish level you select.
Ive Ubertis imported by all three importers, in a number of finishes ranging from the antique to the rust blue. All are good. I appreciate Taylors customer service and resent the service I received from Texas Jacks. I've written about my experience in prior posts, and there's no need to go over it again.
Midway has some parts listed as Taylor's but none of the guns are listed that way as yet.
Cimarron is a Uberti but fit and finished a bit better. I have a Cimarron SAA and fit and finish is on par with my 2nd gen Colt.
My Cimarron with outshoot my Colt with lead bullets. Probably due to the Colt having a 454" cylinder throat.
If you can see there are no 'markings' on the barrel except for a 'proof' mark and date stamps that are very hard to see and the other side of the barrel looks the same, everything else is under the loading lever. That's a Uberti built revolver from Taylor's & Co. However, defarbing is also an option
I checked the gun and there is no "Taylor's & Co." on the barrel under the loading lever but there IS a "2014" marking.
The bottom of the numbers are incompletely stamped.
The date cartouche IS "CM" for 2014.
None of my other Piettas have a date stamp there.
My Cabela's Pietta 1860 has nothing stamped on the barrel under the loading lever but it is a "CL" for 2013.
What, if anything, is stamped under your loading levers on your new MidwayUSA Uberti's?
Anyone have a 2014 Taylor's & Co. or MidwayUSA gun with a similar date marking?
"Cimarron is a Uberti but fit and finished a bit better."
With multiple examples to look at in my own collection, I respectfully disagree. There's nothing special about Cimmaron *within any similar finish category* than those imported by Taylors.
Taylors imports are unmarked save for the "black powder only" under the loading lever and proof and date code stamps on the frame. Cimmaron adds non-authentic markings on the barrel. For this reason I prefer non-Cimmaron imported examples.
These are the only markings besides the serial number on the buttstrap.
IMHO you may be correct with the newer made guns. My statement was based on a side by side comparison I did years ago of Uberti and Cimarron. At that time the Cimarron had a more attractive blueing and "seemed" to be fitted better. Maybe it was luck of the draw?? Don't know.
I only have one BP pistol (1860 Colt) so I am certainly no expert. I prefer smokeless powder weapons.
And I've neither of their cartridge guns to compare. All of their current BP stuff is identical though.
