Hi Dave, those are really great 1858s, I have two and as soon as they offer free shipping for firearms I will own another. This is your chance to own a truly beautiful 1858 at a great price. Don't wait too long.

Regards,
Richard

got email from Cabelas today.  Now it is on backorder.
Nothing about it on website when I paid for it.
and it took a week (about) for them to say it is on back order.

Hi DD, IMO you should call Cabelas and cancel your order. You may find that you may otherwise get a returned revolver that was rejected.

Regards,
Richard

yeah maybe, but I have 2 cabelas each within 50 miles, can probably go there and do an exchange
or I can send it back if it's not up to quality

Those are very nice looking guns.  A laser engraved percussion revolver appeals to me in much the same way as a stainless steel one, or a 3D printed, plastic container for paper cartridges.  It's a clash-of-centuries phenomenon, or "creative anachronism", and I approve.

Kinda curious, Mazo, but does the cylinder pin still drop out completely out of the gun as soon as the loading lever's dropped (my engraved bugger came that way, and that's not how it's supposed to be)?

I've shot my engraved '58 Remington many many times, and it's great. It's a beautiful gun, and shows some wear now, but it still looks great. I don't know how many rounds I've put through it, maybe 1500+, it just keeps on going.
If you see it for that price again, you should go for it, you won't be sorry.
When you have to shoot, shoot! Don't talk
