I also have a Cimarron '73 clone in .45 colt. Well built and great shooter. They have hide most of the Italian proof marks. I think the only proof marks that can be seen are under the lever.My '73 Winchester clone is a Cimarron and also by Uberti. That rifle is a shooter with smokeless or BP. I don't believe I'd hesitate to buy one of their revolvers.
People that don't like using Kentucky windage shouldn't buy fixed sighted guns period.I buy guns for appearance and for target shooting. A gun that shoots off point of aim is problematical for me.
.The bottom line is I’ll not be buying anymore Italian clone guns! You, of course, can if you want.
The first I heard of this problem was some 20 years or more ago, where an article by Mike Venturino was talking about Bocephus doing that to a brand new Single Action Army.I wonder if original Colts or even newer ones have the same problem with the failure to shoot to the point of aim??
