The Cimarron Plinkerton
I had the opportunity to handle one today, and unfortunately, I was not impressed. It was a new gun, priced at $159. The finish was black paint, but that was OK. I would just remove it, and let the gun go au naturale. However, the chambers and the barrel were sleeved. I suppose the rest of the gun may have been manufactured from melted down doorknobs and
I did not shoot the gun, but I figure for $159, it whips the Heritage Arms Rough Rider's tail handily. It's a shame Cimarron dropped their standards to meet a price point though. I, for one, would have paid considerably more for a 22 caliber Single Action Army revolver made to Cimarron's usual standard. As it is, I'm happy with my Ruger MKII and my Model 17.
