I went to Cabela's yesterday and placed a 5.5 inch Remington C&B revolver on lay-a-way.
They had at least 4 or 5 of them in stock so I asked the sales person to let me check the trigger of a new one from the box before buying it.
The triggers on the first 2 revolvers that I checked weren't acceptable because of too much gritty creep and slack. Even the sales person acknowledged that those triggers needed some work.
The trigger pull of the 3rd one that I examined was a tad heavy but it had a very crisp let off so I put a deposit on it.
The sales person did acknowledge that their black powder guns are generally not returnable like all of their other products are.
There was a thread on TheHighRoad on April 4th, 2012 about how Cabela's refused to allow the return of a defective muzzle loading rifle. So it's possible that some folks will not be able to return a revolver simply because they're not happy with the quality of it as it comes out of the box.
Here's the thread:

Y'all learn from my mistake

If there's folks who have tried to return their revolvers back to Cabela's since April 4, 2012, then I'd like to hear more info. about their experience. I feel fortunate to have been able to check the gun out first before buying it. But I know that probably won't be the case for everyone else.
