New Toy from Old Thread...OR NOT

So I have really been craving a Griswold and Gunnison. I wanted one as a start to a Confederate handgun collection and because I like the show Hell On Wheels and it really ****** me off that they don't give Cullen an accurate replica.
I have been eyeballing the repro's on the various sites and have seen them for as low as $209.00 but I chickened out every time.
While reading through the archives I saw over on page 40 a link to the Traditions bargain bin
Just ordered this
http://www.traditionsfirearms.com/pr...c3c68a3a434054
Yeah I know it's a .44 but it's close enough for $177.00 shipped.
Here is the link to the bargain bin
http://www.traditionsfirearms.com/sp...810428969d2ecc
In case anyone else wants one.

Yeah sorry about that bubba But blame Arcticap I got the link from one of his old threads. I didn't even know you could order directly from Traditions. I thought they just supplied stuff to other retailers.
But it's ok if you want to blame it on me Just don't tell MY wife.

TomADC bought a nickeled Traditions Hawkens with a laminated stock from the bargain bin that he blamed on me too, so you're not the first!

thanks, just ordered one.
I've gotten several similar deals with Traditions.
Although I wanted it in .36, this is too good to pass up.

Well now that I know about it I will be watching with great interest. Maybe they will decide they have too many Spiller & Burrs

I didn't buy the Traditions blinged 1860 but did buy a Uberti 1860 from the person I bought my 3rd model Dragoon from. Should have it soon.

Red Wiggler not for the price I wanted to pay.
