1851 Navy .36 Caliber Blued/White Revolver

Anyone have any comments regarding the quality, price, pros/cons of the following revolver: 1851 Navy .36 Caliber Blued/White Revolver

I was thinking about getting one but just wasn't sure if there was something more interesting to get in a 1851 elsewhere.

If I had some spare funds, I'd get two.

Nope, It's a 1862 police by Pietta with a gated Kirst Konverter. Which by the way is incorrect being a 6 shot, the original Colts were 5 shot very small frames.Uberti's 1862 is more anitomicaly correct.

I went ahead and ordered one. $299.99 on sale at $239.99...sign up for Cabellas VISA and get $15 off. Special $5 shipping on orders over $150. Final price: $229.99

Not too bad a price I suppose. Hopefully it'll be worth it.
