[5 of 5 Stars!]I purchased the Cimarron 1911 for SASS Wild Bunch matches, and have been pleased with it so far. Fit and finish are excellent, the trigger breaks crisply at about 5 pounds, and the slide actuates smoothly on the frame. Upon unboxing, the finish on the frame was slightly more gray than the slide, giving it almost a two-tone look, but with cleaning and oiling this has evened out and the frame and slide finish match nicely.
My only real gripe is that it does not lock the slide back on every magazine. This slide lock only works reliably with magazines that have aggressive spring pressure, such as that provided by Tripp springs and followers. I think this is because the slide stop has an overly aggressive divot in its end that engages the slide stop plunger; it takes a lot of force to break the plunger engagement on the slide stop. I may have to replace the slide stop with an aftermarket unit.
Also, this is really more of a 1918 frame finished with A1 parts. The safety catch, hammer, grip safety, and trigger are not quite correct for an actual WWI-issue 1911. But these are pretty minor details, some of which actually improve the shootability of the pistol. Overall, very happy so far with this purchase.

[5 of 5 Stars!]Arrived in fantastic condition. The slide was tight. I've put about 250 rounds through it and it shoots like a dream. No rattle, everything is smooth and tight. Pretty accurate groupings 7, 15 yards and up to 25. This Cimarron stands up no problem to my friends Springfield. As always buds delivers at great pricesShow More Reviews...
