- Somewhat Disappointing Review by dtolbert
Quality Price Value
The gun was purchased at Cabela's, who gladly returned the firearm to Cimarron to correct the problem. Upon its return, the issue is mostly resolved, but the cylinder still provides some resistance on occasion.
After firing several hundred rounds with the Plinkerton, I have become more disenchanted with it. While I originally purchased it for the better "feel" over the Heritage Rough Rider, the plastic grips on the Plinkerton have begun to wear on me. It is safe to say that I have buyer's remorse and wish that I had spend $60 less on the Rough Rider to have wood grips and more reliable performance in place of a heavier gun with a larger cylinder.

- Great bargain/Good shooter Review by TimS
Quality Price Value
The plastic grips, believe it or not were appreciated by both of my sons', and to be honest, by myself as well. It is textured, so you can get very tight grip, on the handle, with minimal slippage.. I noted in the accessories department, that wood replacements are available, but I will leave that one up to them, once they are old enough to have them transfered.
The kit came with; a gun lock, a key for the safety and a cleaning brush. The removable cylinder made cleaning and oiling them rather simple, in my opinion. I personally like the side loader, versus having to "eject" the cylinder in order to load it as well.
If there is any feature, I dont particular care for thus far, it would have to be the safety, located on the left side of the pistol. It somewhat takes away from the overall appearance of the handgun, and I haven't seen this function before on other revolvers. I suppose Cimarron HAD to include these for one reason or another, but I would have prefered they hadn't incorporated them as I said before. It didnt prevent me from buying it however, and I would purchase another one if I found the need.
I highly recommend this pistol, since I know we will be having years of fun ahead of us using these rascals! (Posted on 1/14/13)
