    The reality is that this is a fantasy game. The most popular guns and cartridges used in this game didn't exist before 1900.

    Rules for ammunition state: SHB pg 37 Talks all about caliber of the bullet. Says nothing of cartridge which holds said bullet. There is one category where a shooter's cartridge is regulated. Classic Cowboy participants may shoot percussion revolvers over .36, but must shoot rimmed cartridge ammunition. Ref SHB pg 7

    This is the gun the OP was talking about. It fits all the requirements of a main match revolver. It is purpose-built .380. (Bullet dia. .355) Which means the bore is the same as for a 9mm instead of the usual .375 for .36 ball. We already allow 9mm as main-match ammo, the .380 is basically a 9mm "short". It is the same frame size as a "Model P Jr." which is already a SASS-legal revolver. The only caveat is that there is not yet any mention of a firing pin rest between chambers. So we don't know if this will be a 5 shot or a 4 shot revolver (for CAS purposes).

    The founders described allowable ammunition in terms or caliber rather than making specific cartridge designations. This opened the door to just about any ammunition that meets diameter requirements (caliber). Snakebite

    I think you would be wrong about that. As for main match versus pocket pistol, I seem to recall something about the Pietta '62 being on a fullsize frame, but the Uberti is a pocket pistol size frame. Not positive about that. But the primary question will be whether or not it has a safety notch for letting the hammer down between cylinders. If it does not, then it won't be useful for either. I asked one of the Cimarron guys last month whether it had the safety notch and he wasn't sure. There was an ad from Cimarron over a year ago that mentioned it having a retractable firing pin. If so, that would allow carrying 5 but would be a no-go for CAS.

    Those pictures bring back memories of the old days. I started in SASS in 1994... a lot of water under the bridge, and changes since then.

    Let's see... It is a reproduction of a single action manufactured prior to 1899. It is a centerfire caliber larger than 32. Both five and six shot cylinders are allowed according to the rule book. The only sticking point I can see is the line about, "Must be in a caliber commonly available in revolvers." The 380 is hardly a commonly available revolver caliber by any stretch of the imagination. Personally, though I would see this classy little conversion revolver more in the spirit of the game than a lot of the acceptable guns and modifications out there.
