If you want a new one, I'm not trying to talk you out of it.
Just putting things in perspective.
If my Miroku built 1885 "low wall" single shot is any indication of Miroku quality, this rifle ought to be a real gem.
As for the price, I suspect that the ones built before '64 would cost that much today if you account for inflation.
