The long-awaited .380 ACP open-top revolver from Cimarron will finally be available for sale. This is a beautiful little gun that blends old-school revolver technology with the .380 cartridge.
You may notice that there is no loading gate. That’s not a mistake. The rounds are held in by the edge of the frame when loaded. The gun looks a bit long, but that’s also very much intentional.
The folks at Cimarron tell me the ATF has given them a run-around when it comes to everything from the weight of the gun to the barrel length. The gun you see here is approved for import, however you can always shorten the barrel if you wish.
A 6-inch, single-action .380 isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it sure is neat. There was also a very cool painting of Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday in the film Tombstone because why not?
In addition, Cimarron is also introducing several new revolvers and some variations on their rifle line. If you haven’t had a chance to see their products in person, it’s worth your time. Keep an eye on my upcoming articles to see how some of these time-honored designs perform.
Faxon Firearms is a company that I’m quite familiar with. I have used their barrels for some time and consider them to be among the best out there. I am a big fan of their 300 BLK barrels and have untold thousands through my 7.5″ AR pistol, which has been featured here on TTAG several times.
New for Faxon is their FX-19 series of pistols, available in Hellfire and Patriot variations. These are GLOCK-style pistols and accept all compatible mags.
The pistols feature aggressive texture in several places on the grip and feel great in the hand. I am very much looking forward to reviewing these guns, as they come loaded with custom-grade parts.
Lastly, I failed to get a good photo of it due to the glass, but the above image is SIG SAUER‘s new belt-fed machine gun. This is a belt-fed .338 Norma Magnum that saves weight over current weapons while increasing range. I have it on good authority that the gun has very low recoil, similar to a 7.62x51mm LMG. I’d love to get my hands on one of these babies…
