    Hello,my name is Joe and I have a Cimarron Gun Works single shot 45 black power pistol. The barrel is marked DeHass 45 cal. The pistol was used by my uncle in NRA match shooting. I can not find any information on the web about the manufacture or the gun value. The stamping Cimarron Gun Works is out of Oklahoma if that helps. Any information would be a big help. Thanks in advance.
    Joe :)

    Hi Joe......welcome to TFF.

    I'm not really sure what you've got. There is a Cimarron Gun Works in Farwell, MI, but they're a repair place and don't make any guns:

    And, of course, there's Cimarron Arms, in Fredricksburg, TX, that sells Western-type reproductions (mostly Uberti & Pedersoli):

    Cimarron Arms does sell a number of black powder pistols, but none in single shot.

    There was, or is, a Frank DeHass who wrote a number of books on gunsmithing and building single-shot guns: .....which leads me to believe that your uncle's gun was custom built, possibly by Frank DeHass or somebody associated with him.....or perhaps by your uncle himself from plans & parts supplied by DeHass.

    Hope this helps you figure out what you've got. :)
