Cimarron’s Pakistani Reproduction Shotguns | SHOT 2017

We’ve written a number of posts on TFB about the Pakistani company Daudsons. Far from the rough copies hammered together (although remarkably accurate) in the gunmaking village of Dharra Adam Khel in the Pakistani province of Khyber Pakthunkhwa. Daudsons is really leading the Pakistani civilian small arms producing industry (Pakistani Ordnance Factory is Government run) with their polymer framed handguns. Although maybe not comparable to the common striker fired polymer framed handguns in the United States, Daudsons is a great leap in the right direction of quality from Pakistan.

However, little known apart from the handguns are the shotguns that Daudsons makes for Cimarron, a company that specializes in mostly Cowboy action shooting reproductions for the various SASS competitions across the United States. The company partnered with Daudsons to produce some of the shotgun line and have had a solid working relationship for the past several years.There were some growing pains as the quality that Daudsons was previously used to in Pakistan wasn’t enough for the U.S.-based Cimarron. But once that standard was pushed and reached, Cimarron’s quality assurance team in the U.S. began accepting the shotguns being imported, and they have been selling ever since.

According to the Cimarron salesman, one of the owners of Daudsons, M.Daud came to the company several years ago at SHOT, with a copy of an older Western themed shotgun he had made in Pakistan. After presenting it to the company, the salespeople were very impressed with the quality and authenticity of markings. He had missed a few bits and pieces, but overall, just from internet research and public information, M.Daud had produced a very faithful copy of the shotgun in question.

Today Daudson makes the 1883 Double Barrel Shogun offered in 22″, 26″, and 28″, in addition to being either a .410 gauge, or 12 gauge. Also made for Cimarron is the 1889 Double Barrel Shotgun Broad Forend that comes in either 18″, 20″, or 22″ barrels. This model also comes in .410 gauge and 12 gauge.

Not available yet but coming to market soon is the Deluxe 1878 Coach Gun with a 20″ barrel and in 12 gauge, with a hand checkered walnut stock.

    I need one of these to keep in my Russian car.

      Why? You can probably assemble an AK out of the jack, the wheel wrench and select parts of the carburetor. Hell, the bumpers are surely made of stamped receivers.

        Every day Svetlana Vladimirovna works a long shift at the machining
        factory beside the smelter at the edge of her city in central Russia.
        The factory makes the best beds in the Soviet Union, all of them of
        exceptional fine steel. But no one in Svetlana’s city, including
        Svetlana, has a bed. This is an unfortunate but perfectly understandable
        matter of policy. The comrades who run the factory, and who have
        designed such magnificent beds, better than any beds in America, have
        decided in the spirit of the revolution and correct socialist principles
        that they must give beds first to all of the hospitals, and to the
        army, and to the universities, and to the collective farms, and to many
        other important institutions necessary for the people and the government
        in the world’s most rapidly and inevitably advancing socialist society.
        To do this, the factory must work round the clock. Three shifts a day.
        and only rarely stopping on holidays. It is understood that the workers
        need beds. But it is not yet the worker’s turn. Only recently did
        cosmonauts receive beds!

        And so everyone who works at the bed factory returns home after each shift and sleeps on the floor.

        One summer Svetlana’s sister, Natasha, who long ago married a man in
        Leningrad and moved away, returned for a visit. She was appalled that
        after ten years Svetlana still had no bed. After all, Svetlana was
        strong of hand and skilled with tools and one of the best machinists at
        the factory. “My dear sister,” Natasha said “You have not been thinking
        correctly. It is very easy to have a bed. Each day you must steal one
        piece of bed from the parts bins at the factory and smuggle it home. And
        after a week or two you must assemble the parts. Then you will have a
        bed. And you will never again sleep on the floor.”

        Svetlana listened closely. “My dear sister,” she sighed, “it is you
        who are not thinking correctly. We have tried this many times. We have
        stolen the parts and carried them home. We assembled them in the room.
        And every time, after we finish, we discover instead of a bed we have an
        automatic Kalashnikov.”
