Yeah, I saw the 20-Gauage Pedersoli Howdah for $499 and had a hard time convincing myself that I didn't need 2.

Unfortunately my conservative ego prevailed and I didn't order a second Howdah.........yet.

You get even more off of the cased Howdah.

And you know you need it!

I bought some flasks for accessorizing some cased sets I am working on.

Now I only need the revolvers, the cases, the molds and the wrenches.

If my wife can accessorize I see no reason why I can't!!!

I saw the howdah on sale as well. Keep talking myself out of getting one, although, I know I'd have fun with it. I'm just not keen on the engraving. Wish they didn't do that to it.

I have two from the Big C. 1858's one with case hardened frame and nice grips for 237 and a standard blued with smooth grips for 219. the 1851 Pietta "Navy Yank Civilian" .36 with case hardened frame and brass grip frame is a beauty, I have one from dixie and unlike most, I dig the faint laser etching on the cylinder. Makes it look old and faded to me.... that's just


The non historic 1851 .44 in steel frame and standard and snubnose versions, the 1860, the 1858 in a few guises are all on sale and my personal favorite purist apoplexy creatorizer 9000 the Navy .44 'Sheriff' brass frame 1851 that was never made but made it into the movie "Andersonville" .... for $149. 00

That's hard to ignore...

at least a couple of you are probably going to want to check out the Pietta steel frame 1858 with starter kit for $199

Those sale prices look like the regular prices from just a few years ago. That said, the Howdah is probably one of the most enjoyable guns ever. If'n you can swing one, don't hesitate. If you go to the store, don't forget to check out the BP stuff in the bargain cave. I got some great deals there. The best one was the Remington revolving carbine for $190.

It seems like I hear about a lot of bargain cave deals. My local Cablea's is what they call an outpost, (way smaller than a full size store) and it doesn't have a bargain cave.

Bargain Cave

IIRC, Cabela's has an online Bargain Cave. Never ordered through that so I don't know if the Bargain Cave relates to local stores near you (or me). Going to have to investigate that when I get some mad money.

Yes, the full size Cabela's have a separate room that is called the Bargain Cave. It's full of clearance merchandise

they sell returned stuff there too. Some of the BP guns I bought in there were brand new in the box. I guess someone bought it and decided it was too much to figure out, I dunno. I do know I got some good deals in there. At one time there were half a dozen Howdah pistols there for around $300. On one trip I bought a second Walker BNIB for $175, a '60 Colt with a hard trigger for $90, (easy fix) and a nice pair of boots for the Mrs. Another time, I found the before-mentioned revolving carbine and a 36 cal. Remington. The Remington must have been dry fired a bunch, maybe a display model, the nipples were mushroomed a little, but for $75 it was another easy fix. Again, lots of other times I went there and they didn't have squat. I wouldn't suggest making a special trip to check it out unless you were going there for something else or wanted to waste time just looking around unless you are close to one though. it's a crap shoot. Luckily I'm only 10 miles from one.

The bargain cave is hit or miss but I have seen and gotten some good deals over the years.

The local bargain cave can be a gold mine. A buddy of mine bought one of those totally over the top, but outrageuosly fun Howdahs there and put a wire stock on it modeled after thus little beauty.

Thanks Malachi Leviticus Blue!

You always seem to have the scoop on Cabela's Promo Codes.

Any idea how long that is good for?

Remember the Euro is dropping like a stone and a lot of these percussion revolvers and accessories are Italian. Expect prices to drop further especially if cabelas wrote the orders in Euros. It costing them about 15 to 20 % less to buy the gun

One of my better sources for this kind of info...
slickguns.com

Says its good until 11:59 PM 3/31/14 (I'm pretty sure "14" is a typo)

Thanks again for the free shipping tip Malachi Leviticus Blue.

Cabela's does not give you much time to ponder your purchase do they?

I went back and ordered two Pietta parts kits ($24.99) and a couple more flasks ($24.99.)

Just enough to get free shipping!

They're always moving prices around like crazy and issuing one day codes. Choosing just the right day to order a cap and ball revolver between Thanksgiving and New Years can be a real challenge.
