    That is nice little feller. Cabela's does screw up occasionally. Like a guy i know found a Colt percussion, I believe it was an 1849 pocket model, lumped in with the repro percussion guns. Got it for $60.

    Congratulations on an excellent acquisition. I would have happily paid $1,000 for that revolver.

    Perhaps they were delaying on the sale because they realized it was definitely under priced?

    Nice gun at a great price but to me its even greater to hear that someone bought a nice Colt at a good price from Cabela' all I have seen at our Cabela's is way overpriced mediocre Colt's.
