    Thinking of purchasing a Cimmaron Firearms SAA .45 Long Colt replica but I know nothing of the manufacturer in terms of product quality. Would appreciate any input in terms of fit and finish, accuracy, reliability and the like.

    I had one a a decade or two ago, They are manufactured by Uberti and I believe the final finish is done by Cimmaron. Fit and finish on mine was decent enough and it shot decently well. I ended up trading it to an FFL dealer for a Ruger Bisley Blackhawk in .45 Colt as the Ruger fit my hand better and was more comfortable for me to shoot. Getting more in trade than I paid for it on a NIB Ruger for the SAA clone was a bonus, otherwise I probably would have kept it and had two .45 Colt revolvers.

    I think you'll be satisfied with it or with a Uberti branded SAA replica. Like I said the only reason mine went away was because an FFL dealer made me an offer I couldn't refuse. :)

    I had one for a short while, traded into it. Shot it quite a bit and enjoyed it. It wasn't the most accurate gun I ever shot but that could have been me! The same guy I got it from traded me out of it, cause he "missed it".

    Check out the Uberti "El Patron" SSA. These revolvers are perfect in every way.
    My favorite!

    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.
