It's a lot of dough but it really is the rifle I had my eye on before I bought the Big Boy. If it had been available in 45 Colt I would have parted with my summer wages long before now. It's a gorgeous rifle and just screams of the old frontier days. Fingers crossed.

Good point. Been playing that card for 35 yrs. Might get a little more mileage out of it.
