Rooster Shooter™

Arguably the most recognizable sixgun in western movie history, Cimarron Fire Arms went to great lengths to reproduce John Wayne's famous sidearm, used in so many of his trial dust sagas. Copied in every detail from Duke's own Colt, this ain't no gussied up six-shooter wearing a fancy finish, with engraving and pictures plastered all over it, rather it boasts of a trail worn, plain finish, with the bluing worn completely off, just like the gun JW packed when taming the silver screen. It even sports the authentically reproduced, aged-looking yellowed grips with the finger grooves! Made by Uberti in .45 Colt caliber, this 4 3/4-inch barreled single action is an exact twin to Big John's original motion picture shooting iron. From the mid-1960s on, our hero packed a gun like this in nearly every one of his great westerns, including such classics as Chisum, Big Jake, Rooster Cogburn, and his Oscar-winning performance in True Grit. As Duke might say, "This just suits your pistol!"

I'm very happyReview by kcld

With the blue removed you obviously need to wipe it down and store it properly but I'm very happy with mine. Shoots well, relatively close to point of aim and very smooth action. Just ordered a proper holster to go with it. (Posted on 10/20/2016)

OK so it has been work'n its way toward two years since my previous post. Pretty much the same except I don't quite know why the other reviewer had a problem with rust. I have not had any problems with that.at all. At least with my copy its like any other gun, as long as you wipe it down after use no problem. It could be the others persons gun is exposed to a different environment.. I'm not sure of the metal used, if the gun was originally nickel finish, stainless or just steel before it was antiqued. I did have the cylinder guide rod improperly seated when I was firing it which is why it was working itself out when firing it. I have been happy with my gun and the Italians did a pretty good job of copying the original. Yeah a little pricey, would feel better if it came with real yellowed ivory but I guess that ain't going to happen. I would not advise firing high pressure Buffalo Bore ammo through it. I don't think it was made for that. (Posted on 8/28/2016)
Possibly the same as the OriginalReview by SodaPopBob

To be fair, to accurately value this gun would have to be compared to an original Colt. One would have to expect the manufacturer to be working off an original Colt blue print, so I assume all measurements the same. I have not checked an original to verify measurements but on this model I'm getting .032 of an inch steel between cartridges in the cylinder walls, and about .060 from cartridges to the outside of the cylinder. That's pretty thin, so I would not want to use heavy loads. I took the gun out to the range and when I fired it the cylinder rod was working its way out, but I discovered I probably neglected to properly align the rod so it would secure it properly with rod recess notches. In my mind color of grips not right, two yellow, doesn't really look like aged ivory. In summary, I imagine its as good as a gun one can acquire if your looking for that Wayne type of hip gun. If I was in charge of its manufacture, I would fit a different grip, and see if I could put a little more metal between cartridges in the cylinder, but Hey, if that was what the originals were??? And yeah, I would work to get the price down a bit if possible. (Posted on 3/27/2015)
Fair copy of the gun used by John Wayne in his moviesReview by ELYLV

Fair reproduction of gun used in movie westerns by John Wayne and others.
Gun is made to look like 1873 colt that has a lot of holster time outdoors and to be a reproduction of the guns used by the Duke which is great fun to own by John Wayne fans.
The price is high for this reproduction gun that should sell for 500 to 600 max in my opinion.
The grip color is a little dark.
No colt pat markings
Still I am happy with it for what it is but feel a little hosed on the price compared to other 1873 colt clones on the market
John Wayne fans and cowboy shooters will enjoy owning this gun

it's an awesome gunReview by John

it is awesome but if I could change one thing it would be the finish I bought this thinking it would be an awesome gun for shooting and hunting but I found out since all it is is an acid wash finish if you touch the gun it will rust. What I did to fix this problem was I used a rust and blueing remover and took the rust off and I used duplicolor high temp clear coat on it I know there are gun colectors that would say I have ruined this gun but if they would offer a nickel finish to this gun it would be a perfect gun.

Frequently Asked

Cimarron FAQs

 Are they real?

Yes, all Cimarron Firearms actually fire.

 Can anyone order from Cimarron?

 Cimarron Firearms can only sell cartridge firearms to FFL licensed dealers.  To find a dealer in your area, please use our dealer locator.

Percussion firearms can be ordered directly from our website.

 Can I use _____ ammunition in my Cimarron Firearms?

 We recommend that you shoot only standard over the counter ammunition that meet SAMMI specification’s, http://www.saami.org/.

 Shooting any ammo like +P or reloads will void the warranty on the gun.

 Cimarron Firearms does not have any plans to make any gun’s that shoot +P ammunition.

 What makes Cimarron Firearms different as an importer?

 Cimarron Firearms worked closely with Uberti in the 80s to completely change the look and feel of the replica firearms you see offered by many companies today.  For more information on this, visit our page Why Cimarron is the Best Buy.

 Is there a minimum order?

 No, we do not require a minimum to order directly from us.

 Do I have to put money down to put something on backorder?

 With the exception of customized guns, your firearms dealer can place something on backorder with no money down.  Keeping up with demand is one of the biggest challenges Cimarron faces.  The factories we work with simply cannot keep up with the demand for our firearms.  If you (the customer) are interested in something, have your local dealer call us or send us an email, and we will get you placed in the queue for that item.  When the gun comes in, we’ll call your dealer to see if you still want it.

 How long will it take to get my gun once I order it?

 This varies a lot per model, depending on the supply and demand of it.  Most items are delivered in 30 days to 6 months, depending on how many dealer orders are on file and how many firearms are on order from the factories. Special orders and customized guns can take longer.

 Why is it taking so long to get my gun?

 Cimarron spends a great deal of time working with the factories it partners with to try to keep up with the demand of our guns.  Unfortunately, this is not always possible.  Due to the craftsmanship and production demands placed on the factories, production schedules and, thusly, deliverables on what we have ordered, can oftentimes get delayed.

 What is Cimarron Firearms’ warranty?

 Cimarron means quality and we stand behind our product.  Please visit our warranty page for more info.

Do you ship guns outside of the U.S.A.?

 Unfortunately, Cimarron does not ship outside of the United States.  We can, however, ship parts, leather, and display boxes to Canada through these distributers:

www.wolverinesupplies.com

www.countryclassics08.com
