    Paid $250 for it including shipping. Brand new. Anybody here have one of these? If so, any comments on this pistol? It gets very good internet reviews.

    I've recently learned on a black powder forum that the gun is NOT stainless, but some kind of brushed steel alloy that does not rust easily. I am anxious for it to arrive so I can play with it!! :)

    Nice to see someone post one that's made for pleasure. Haven't tried that one, but got to try a Navy 36 cal. and a 1860 Army 44, and it's just great fun.
    I was surprised at how well they balanced in the hand. Good lil shooters too.
    Congrats, hope it's exactly what ya wanted.

    I always thought that any firearm that went "boom" was pleasure! :) Seriously, this new toy is all business, with a little pleasure thrown in. I received it today, and it was NO disappointment!
