I already have a nice 1851. The problem is that it's so nice I'm afraid to shoot it. So I wanted a "beater" gun; something I wouldn't care about if it got scratched up. This gun is absolutely perfect! Mechanically, the action is nice and crisp. You can't ask for more. I dremeled out the sharp edges of the brass, and worked the grips to get rid of the edges. So now I can hold it without cutting myself. The main pin for the barrel was ill-fitting, but Mr. Dremel took care of that problem too. Now it goes in all the way, and holds the gun together tight. Probably unlike other customers out there, I have no interest in smoothing out the rest of the brass, getting rid of the machine marks on the steel, or staining the grips. Now I'm gonna take ol' Betsy here out in the woods, shoot some 2-liters, and have some fun!
