  1. Thanks for the replies. A quick check on the Cabelas website showed this. https://www.cabelas.com/shop/en/pietta-model-1858-new-army-target-44-caliber-black-powder-revolver It shows that they are not currently available for online shipping which is consistent with the last few months. In store pickup only and since the closest store to me is 4 hours one way it's hardly worth the effort. I have a feeling that this is a specter of things to come for BP revolvers. I hope that I'm wrong. At any rate I was able to locate a pair of nice used target remmies on another forum and se
  2. I have an urge to buy another 58 Remington NMA with target sights. My old eyes can't see a post and v notch anymore. Let me know if you have one that you can part with. Please email me at badgerfarm2 (at) gmail dot com I don't check the site very often as my computer is old and doesn't like the software on the forum. Thanks Ranger McMinn

  4. I have had this same experience on multiple sites. The "friend" always has exactly what you want at a bargain basement price and it is a scam without a doubt. When in doubt I ask the seller to send me a photo of the item with my name and current date written on a card in front of the item. I've never heard back from the "friend" while other legitimate sellers are usually happy to comply. McMinn
  5. Hi Pit Bull, The so called buyer was only a tire kicker and low baller. I know who it is and he's well known for buying dirt cheap and then reselling for a huge profit. Sorry I wasted your time. Best Randall
  6. I'll let you know as soon as I hear back from them. I hope I can get it put together today and you and I can go from there.
  7. Pit Bull, I have a person on the NSSA site that is interested in the Murray. If he and I can work something out and you still have the Old Army maybe we can put a deal together. Badger
  8. Found another cylinder......big thanks to Prairie Dawg. I can still use misc Pietta and Uberti internal parts, and grips for both Remingtons and Colts plus used or abused Remmie cylinders in .44 and .36 cal. The internal parts don't need to packaged and a little dirt and rust is OK as long as the price is right. I know that I can order new parts from Taylors and Dixie but some of the prices have gotten out of hand and Pesos are tight on a fixed income. I know that a lot you out there know what I'm talking about. Many thanks, Badger
  9. I'll keep you in mind Redwood Kid if I decide to do anything with them. Most of them are cased sets with the exception of the 48 Baby but I would need to do an inventory. If memory serves me I have from the 48 Baby Dragoon no lever, 51 Navy, 60 Army non fluted, 60 Army fluted, Walker, and 1st, 2nd, and 3rd model Dragoons. With medical bills I might be forced to think about it sometime.
  10. Thanks Dawg. I'll be watching the classifieds. I can use Colt parts too as I have quite a few of those as well. I tune and tinker with the repros and keep my 2nd Generation Colt collection unfired. I can't stand the thought of shooting them....they're too pretty.
  11. Thanks for the heads up Rooster Ron. I did see those listed on their site and it seems like a pretty good price. I was hoping that they would run their BP items on sale before Christmas but thought I would look for pre owned in the meantime. I've seen some go for really good prices on occasion and if one popped up before Christmas I would grab it. Worst case is I'll buy one for myself for a Christmas present. Sure beats a tie or a sweater with a moose head on it. While on topic about BP revolvers if anyone has any left over stray parts for percussion revolvers I could use just about
