I paid more, but I did get one in .36. :D
I haven't seen another one at all.

Too bad the description doesn't match the photo.
Do you have a photo of yours to show us?
Where did you buy it? :)

I got it in one of those trade deals with another local club member and thought I'd like it, but I didn't at first. I don't know where he got it- he's a wheeler-dealer.
It grew on me like a weed...it took a bit though.

I realized that the grip frame was steel and my thick head thought that it was a deal!

I tried to sell it a bit back on here for $289 and I'm proud there was no takers! :D The worst thing I did was sell my Dance because extra cylinders were so expensive! I bought a new "blemished" one (I can't find the blemish!). :D

I'll have to picture it with a new gun I've got coming. ;)

Who knows what to believe: the picture or the description. If they are brass framed (as described), aren't the Tradatitons on the high side when you can get a steel framed 1860 Army from Cabelas for $200? Or, am I missing something obvious?

The photo shows that it has a steel frame.
Andy Griffith states that his grip frame is steel which doesn't match with it being a brass frame pistol.
The uncommon birdshead grip is what makes the revolver more appealing to most folks. Otherwise they would need to construct one on their own or try to buy one and fit it at additional expense.
Traditions Pietta revolvers come with their own 1 year warranty.
