SHOT Show 2016 Special Edition Day 1: Cimarron Eliminator Series

By CTD Blogger published on in Firearms

Cimarron offers firearms used to tame the frontier in Texas and the American West. Often regarded as the leader in Cowboy Action authenticity, Cimarron has supported Cowboy Action Shooters since 1987. For 2016, Cimarron continues that tradition with three new pistols in the Eliminator series. Cimarron’s new Eliminator Octagon features a 4.75-inch octagonal barrel, checkered Army-style grips, and a pre-war frame. It also has a 25 percent shorter hammer stroke for fast, easy cocking, which is a real plus for one-handed (duelists and mounted) shooters. It has a case-hardened/blued-frame/cylinder assembly and is available in .357 Magnum/.38 Special and .45 Long Colt. SRP: $778.70

Cimarron’s new Eliminator Competition features a 4.75-inch round barrel, checkered single-action grips, and a pre-war frame. Like the Eliminator Octagon, it has a 25 percent shorter hammer stroke and a Cowboy Comp U.S. action job. The Eliminator Competition is available in a color case-hardened/blued-frame/cylinder assembly or stainless steel. It’s also available with a standard or low, wide hammer. Available in .357 Magnum/.38 Special and .45 Long Colt. SRP: $713.70.

Cimarron’s new Eliminator Thunderstorm is available with a 3.5- or 4.75-inch barrel and checkered grips. Its specially designed Thunderstorm hammer is low and wide for comfortable no-slip cocking. The hammer—along with the 25 percent shorter hammer stroke and Cowboy Comp Thunderstorm action job—makes it an ideal competition gun for mounted shooters. The Eliminator Thunderstorm is available in standard blue or polished stainless steel in .45 Long Colt. SRP: $747, blue; $973, stainless.

Cimarron is also offering four laser-engraved revolvers from Pietta, Italy. All are great looking and affordably priced. They are available in two finishes: nickel and old silver frame (OSF). OSF is a two-tone finish, where the barrel, cylinder, and grip assembly are blued and the frame is left in white for a polished steel finish. There are also two grip options—a poly-ivory grip or checkered walnut. SRP: starts at $648.70.

    I put the Eliminator C with 4&3/4″ barrel in 45 Colt on layaway yesterday. It sure is beautiful to look at, and the action is slick and smooth as butter. The trigger pull is very light.

    If anyone wants to know how it shoots, leave a request and I will post an answer. I probably will pick it up in first part of June. I will shoot it the day I get it.

    What beautiful weapons these are!!! I’m definitely saving my money up to get one of these beauties. The .45 long is my choice.
