Cimarron Coach Gun

Yesterday I ordered an 1878 Colt replica coach gun from Buffalo arms. Looks like it will be a really fun gun.

Has anyone of you had any experience with them?

They look like well made shotguns.

Thanks

Jack

No, but I also have been looking for a good "American" made coach gun. Of the new one's that I could find still being made at a reasonable price, were either being made in china, turkey or russia. I'm interested in hearing about your new gun, please post your thought's when you get it.

I don't believe those are "American-made" either...

I think those are Imported by Cimarron and made by Uberti in Italy...

(I'm not saying there's anything wrong with that...just that it's essentially an Uberti 'clone' no matter who Imports It, Distributes it, or Retails it...)

(who must have at least half-a-dozen Uberti's here and there)

I also have a couple of Uberti single action colt replicas. I Love those guns, Uberti has one of the most beautiful bluing (Deep Black) that I've seen. I think it might be cyanide blue which can still be legally done in Italy.

I'm not opposed to quality imported firearms, Italy and Spain make some of the finest shotguns and pistols in the world in my opinion. I'm opposed only to those outsourced to slave labor countries by American manufacturer's to make a buck from us with an inferior product. I'm disappointed to know that Remington and Mossberg are among them along with others that will shock you. Here is the link to an interesting article that explains in more detail.

It seems that it started with a need for affordable double guns and has gone from there, and will continue until us as consumers say enough is enough.

I'll give you guys a report this weekend when I've had time to take it to the range.

I pick it up today.

The Cimarron coach gun is made in China and is supposed to be very well made from what I've read. They are supposed to be made very rugged for cowboy action shooting.

Well, I happy. Got my coach gun yesterday and it looks to be very well made. Bores both @ .733 , lumps measure 7/16" wide, barrels total width is 2.300 at rear. From standing breach to the center of hinge pin is 2 3/4". Hinge pin is .315 in diameter.

Metal finish is far better than I would have expected for the price.
Using Federal Premium Mag Shok with flitecontrol wad #5 shot it shoots a pattern that equal an 835 mossberg with turkey choke. No kidding it really does. What a shock. It put 14 hits in kill zone on turkey target at 30 yds. This fllitecontrol wad is what does the trick. We used other types of turkey loads and it spread them wide like you would expect from cyl. bore barrel. It will be in the woods in the morning turkey hunting.

The weight is 8lbs. and you will be glad it is when you shoot a 3" turkey load.

I will try to take some decent photos this evening or in the morning.

If you have any questions that might help you make your choice just ask.

Jack

Thank you Jack, that's good information that will be very useful to me when choosing my coach gun. I'm glad to see that you're satisfied with the gun, by your description it sounds like it is heavy and very well put together. I don't plan on using mine for cowboy shooting, I want it to throw it on the quad when I'm working on the ranch. Puma's and rattlesnakes keep me on alert at all times. I have other doubles, but I don't want to subject them to the abuse of everyday working use. Hope this works, this is the first time I've posted a pic.

Last year my wife was piling brush and ran across this little rascal. I ventilated him with my Kimber .45. He was probably 5 1/2" long. I hate to waist good .45 ammo when one good blast from the coach gun would do.



Thanks again for the info, Dave.

Blackdiamond, I can see you are a very smart man. You are holding the pistol while the wife holds the snake.

Just kidding

I know how to deal with large rattlesnakes after you shoot their heads off with your coach gun. You fillet them and marinade them with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic, then grill them over mesquite coals and then salt to taste. Its not in the same class as prime rib or 1k's chilli, but its still pretty tasty. Might work with mountain lion too.

No, not unless they are an immediate threat. I've coexisted with them for years without any real problems, but I like to be prepared just in case there is one around stocking and sizing me up for lunch. The truth is, if they are stocking you, it's usually too late by the time you realize it. The timber ratt in the pic was creating a problem for my wife, I had no choice. At least I made good use of him, right into the chili pot. Um Um good.

Now that sounds like a very tasty receipe, I think I'll try it with the next viper.
