I was on cabelas and saw that neet looking brass confederate 1851, for sale for only $99.00. And got one and it is very well made for the price. I have many balckpowders, including a remington and walker. And this cheep priced gun is great. It is perfect for me to go hunting with and is very accurate. I recommend it to anyone wanting to try balck powder. However it is made of brass and brass tends to be very soft and eay to scratch. I also ordered a uberti 1851 from cabelas that was color case harded civilian model for twice the price. This model was horible:banghead: it had a barrel so crooked to the left it made me nuts, and could not figure out what to bend to fix it, so I returned it for a credit certificate. Cabelas was very nice and work with me well.
