If you wait and watch Cabela's web site between now and Christmas they will go on sale. Last year the lowest was around $140-150. I am waiting for the 1851's to go on sale then I will buy one. I already have two of them but cannot get a conversion cylinder for them because they are ASM & ASP. I email Raven about conversion cylinders but no go. I will sell the others to fund the purchase. I like conversion cylinders because I can shoot them with smokeless at indoor ranges which all ban BP. It is just getting too hard physically to get in the woods to shoot, but a 10 block trip to the indoor range is ok. BTW I have 2 Pietta 1858 Remingtons and have had no problems with them.
