A great value...

Cabelas has a balck powder Uberti 1873 Cattleman 5.5" for only $240. with a loading stand. I bought it on line.
Now I already have a couple 45C cartridge Uberti and this is the same great quality build and $100 cheaper than the Cattleman Millinium now days.

For about the same money you could have bought a Uberti 1860 Colt or for less money a Pietta 1860.

I have a couple 1858's one is stainless and the other is blue 5.5" with a Krist Konverter. Have 1859, 1862, 1861(real short barrel) 1849 ,pocket .32and more. I never really shoot BP anymore and did 3 Kirst conversions so far.
Forget to mention my 5 1/2 " stainless ROA with a conversion cylinder too. Have a brown bess flintlock....on and on
You are right I do need to get a 1860 now that Kirst has conversions for them.
