Being brand new to this kind of firearm, but wanting one of these, I finally bought my 36 caliber from cabelas..after getting all the things needed, I finally hit the woods to try it out...Its a terrific bargain for the buck! Shoots smooth, and very accurate..One chamber failed to go off.l.when I got home and broke it down, I discovered that the nipple was loose...after I tightened it up, it fired flawlessly..I almost feel like one of you "pros"...lol..but again, its a great replica..and is 95% on target at whatever one aims it at...I'm very satisfied...now,I have to get that soapy hot water ready to clean it up...

There should be a sign up at the Cabela's black powder section. "Abandon all hope ye who enter here"

and Denster..I will break down the entire gun, action and all..you guys know what you are talking about, obviously...I think my next order is going to be for the .44 ..and maybe after that, a stainless steel one..
