Bodeo M-1889

     Notes:  This one-time Italian service revolver was widely distributed throughout the Mediterranean, the Balkans, Somalia, Ethiopia, and neighboring areas.  It can still be found among civilians (and in some places, warlords’ armies) in these areas.  There are three models – the Enlisted Model and the Officer’s Model. The Officer’s Model has a conventional trigger and trigger guard; the Enlisted Model has a folding trigger that couples with a safety mechanism, but no trigger guard; a later version built 1920-29 used a shorter 3.5-inch barrel (as opposed to the earlier 4 3/8-inch barrel) and a conventional trigger guard and mechanism.  (The Enlisted and Officer’s Models are identical for game purposes.)  Loading is through a loading gate on the right side of the cylinder.  Some of the frames are actually made of brass, but such Bodeos are probably quite corroded these days.  The frames will show many minor differences due to the Bodeo being built by dozens of manufacturers.  Use of the M-1889 continued through World War 2, and later with several police departments around the world, until the late 1950s.

Cimarron 1872 Open Top

     Notes: This is a copy of the 1872 Colt Open Top, the revolver that perhaps typified the transition from ball and cap firearms to cartridge firearms.  It is not a handsome firearm, but it is functional, especially with modern ammunition and propellant blends.  It also looks good in a movie or TV show, which is where a lot of them went.  The Open Top comes in three barrel lengths and several calibers.

Cimarron Evil Roy Model

     Notes: Gene “Evil Roy” Pearcy is a successful Colorado realtor who is also known as one of the best Cowboy Action Shooting experts in the modern world.  Mr. Pearcy has always been fond of the Colt Peacemaker.  However, the Colt Peacemaker (and faithful reproductions) were never meant to be fired as much as good Cowboy Action Shooting experts do, firing thousands of rounds per year, and dry firing just as much.  Gene Pearcy needed something that was far more durable than a Peacemaker.  Colt refused to make a gun to Mr. Pearcy’s specifications, so Mr. Pearcy turned to Uberti, who makes the Cimarron series of Old West reproductions.

     The base weapon for the Evil Roy Model is the Cimarron Model P, a Peacemaker reproduction.  The finish is case-colored, with a blued cylinder, barrel, and trigger.  The sights are better than those of the Peacemaker, and the grips are of checkered walnut.  The entire weapon is designed for durability.  Mr. Pearcy’s normal caliber is .45 Long Colt, but others are available, as well as a variety of barrel lengths.

Cimarron Lightning

     Notes: This is a modern reproduction of the 1877 Colt “Lightning” revolver, one of the first double-action revolvers to be mass-produced.  (The Lightning moniker was never officially applied to the Model 1877 by Colt, but most users knew it by that name, due to the fast firing speed of the Model 1877 compared to the single-action revolvers prevalent at the time.)  The original Colt Lightning also came in a .41 Long Colt version (popularly known as the Thunderer), but Cimarron did not produce its Lightning in this caliber.  The original Colt Model 1877 was best known as the weapon used by John Wesley Hardin to kill Billy the Kid (though he actually used the .41 Long Colt version).

     The Cimarron copy is a single-action weapon, in order to make it legal in SASS competitions.  The lockwork is actually a scaled-down version of the Colt Single Action Army’s lockwork, because the Model 1877 lockwork is very complicated and fragile.  The Cimarron Lightning has a color case-hardened finish for the frame and hammer, with the rest of the metalwork blued.  The grips are comfortable in even small hands; women have in particular embraced the Cimarron Lightning for SASS competitions.  The trigger guard can be a bit too sharp, leading to the occasional minor injury.  The trigger pull is extremely light at 1.5 pounds.  The Cimarron Lightning can fire blackpowder loads, but it isn’t really designed for them, and the results are generally disappointing accuracy and range-wise. 

     Twilight 2000 Notes: This revolver does not exist in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Cimarron “Man With No Name” Conversion

     Notes: A replica of the 1851 Colt Navy used by Clint Eastwood in The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, this revolver reportedly presented its Uberti designers with a great deal of trouble, as they were modifying it to fire modern cartridges from what was originally a ball-and-cap revolver, simultaneously trying to (as much as possible) retain the look and feel of the original.  (Blackpowder cartridges can still be used with this revolver.)

     The result is a revolver which is, while similar in appearance, does easily show a number of modifications required for the revolver to use modern ammunition.  This included access to the cylinder via a loading gate, the lack of an ejection rod, and an original-type finish; however, the revolver also required a great deal of strengthening in the cylinder and barrel (done mostly by using stronger modern steel to avoid having to thicken the cylinder and barrel walls).  The grip is one-piece walnut.  The barrel is 7.5 inches long, with fixed notch-and-bead sights.  The resulting weapon is exceptionally well-balanced and exhibits good accuracy.

Cimarron Model P

     Notes: There are actually two major versions of this revolver – one in conventional heavy blued steel, and one in stainless steel.  There are three versions of the stainless steel model: one chambered for .357 Magnum, one chambered for .45 Long Colt, and one with exchange cylinders for .45 Long Colt and .45 ACP.  (The .45 Long Colt-only version is identical to the one with exchange cylinders for game purposes, except for not having the ability to fire .45 ACP ammunition.)  All come on a variety of barrel lengths.  The Model P looks and feels like an Old West Colt revolver (though it is not a replica or reproduction of any particular weapon).  The Model P has one-piece walnut grips which are well-fitted, – the entire revolver is well put together and solid.  Finishes include stainless steel, blued, case-color hardened, or combinations of these. Trigger pull is light.  The sights are hard to see and use, but this actually increases the authenticity of the Model P.  Unfortunately, those sights can produce improper groups, ranging from wide groups to groups which are too far to the left or right.  Variants of the Model P include the US Cavalry Model, Artillery Model, and Frontier Six-Shooter – even the Evil Roy Model and Wyat Earp Buntline are in reality variations of the Model P, though they have been given separate entries.

     The conventional heavy blued steel model has a case-colored frame, blued barrel and cylinder, and excellent polishing.  It is heavier than the stainless steel model, and comes in a wider variety of chamberings, including the model with exchange cylinders.  It is otherwise identical to the stainless steel model.

     The exchange cylinder model has some serious shortcomings; the cylinders are very difficult to replace (because of the excellent fit and lockup of the cylinders when placed in the revolver), and when .45 ACP ammunition is used in the Model P, the revolver tends to fire groups which strike way too low, even when fired by expert marksmen.  Consequently, an excessive amount of “Kentucky windage” (estimation of where you actually have to point the revolver to get the rounds to hit where you really want them to hit) is required. With .45 Long Colt ammunition, the same weapon will fire tight groups on target consistently, with no such estimation required. 

     The Model P Jr is a newer, smaller iteration of the Model P, with smaller calibers and shorter barrels, and lighter weight.  For the most part, they otherwise mimic the Model P in detail.  The version firing .22 Long Rifle/.22 Magnum uses an interchangeable cylinder; the .32-20/.32 H&R Magnum versions are the same.  Weight varies wildly – many times, longer-barreled versions are lighter than shorter varieties, due to differences in construction.

Cimarron Remington 1858 New Army Conversion

     Notes: Another semi-replica of an old revolver, the Cimarron Remington 1858 is again externally almost identical to the original.  However, internally it is somewhat different, due to the conversion to allow the replica to fire modern cartridges (and their blackpowder equivalents).  Only modern-propellant loads are dealt with in the stats below.

     The replica retains most of the features of the original – a lever-actuated cylinder removal facility (which essentially allows the revolver to be reloaded almost as quickly as a magazine-fed weapon), a high-spur hammer, an ejector rod which has no ejector spring, authentic finish, a solid frame, two-piece walnut grips, and no top strap (as per the original 1858 Remington, before the US Army decided that a top strap was necessary to assist aiming with inexperienced troops).  Sights are a little different, with the front sight being dovetailed in to allow for crude windage adjustments.  This is fortunate, because with factory placement of the front sight, most shooters quickly discover that the Cimarron 1858 Remington tends to shoot somewhat to the right of the point of aim. Several chamberings of this revolver are available, but for the most part, they are not interchangeable, though the revolver is capable of shooting both blackpowder and modern-propellant ammunition.

Cimarron Richards II Conversion

     Notes: This is a semi-replica of Diamond Dot’s Richards II version of the 1860 Colt Army revolver.  (It is also known as the Cimarron Richards Transition Model and the Cimarron Richards Tradition Model.) This replica is rare, and intended to be a limited-production model by Cimarron. 

     Externally, Cimarron’s Richards II is virtually identical to the original; it has the same basic design, with a loading gate for the cylinder instead of a swing-out cylinder, a one-piece walnut grip in the shape and style popular in those days, an ejector rod with a large knob, a high hammer spur, and simple, fixed, notch and blade sights.  Unfortunately, most gun experts have discovered that without modification of the sights to make then higher, or modification of the high hammer spur, the Cimarron Richards II invariably shoots (depending upon the shooter) anywhere from 2-6 inches too high when the sights are seemingly right on target, and groupings are quite wide.

     Oh, one more thing – Cimarron has converted their Richards II replica to fire the more modern .45 Long Colt cartridge, as well as .44 Special.  (The original Richards II fired .44 Colt, a cartridge which is no longer manufactured in any large numbers by any company.)  The Cimarron Richards II replica can still fire .44 Colt ammunition, and may fire both blackpowder and modern-propellant rounds.  (The figures below are for use with modern propellant.)

Cimarron Wyatt Earp Buntline

     Notes: This single-action revolver is a modern reproduction of the 1870s vintage Colt Buntline Special.  Though there is no real evidence that Wyatt Earp ever possessed a Colt Buntline Special, this is the weapon that is most often associated with Wyatt Earp – a story probably perpetuated by the dime novelist E.Z.C. Judson.  The Cimarron Wyatt Earp Buntline is the weapon used by him in the movie Tombstone (played in that movie by Kurt Russell).  This revolver features a silver-inlaid grip panel and well-polished wooden grips.  The finish is one of the best ever put on a replica gun. The Wyatt Earp Buntline has a remarkable 10-inch barrel.

     Twilight 2000 Story: I’m not sure if this revolver would exist in the Twilight 2000 World; if it does, it is extremely rare.  Tombstone was made in 1993; it would be one of the last movies made before the war if it got made at all.
