I got my 1858 at Gander and regretted it. Go with Cabelas.

Many years ago witnessed a chain fire. After seeing the shooter's hand, decided smokeless powder and metallic cartridges were the only way to go.

Uberti makes a solid gun. That's a nice one! Have you decided on finish and barrel length and finish yet?

Over the years I have owned/used a few BP revolvers. While not "traditional" my favorite is the sadly discontinued Ruger Old Army. Would have liked to get one in stainless with 5 1/2 inch barrel. With ivories
Mine was blued with the 7 1/2 inch barrel and a portable man-served land-cannon it was. Traded it for a .38spl Smith I needed for a job after college....

Ditto on the Ubertis.. they make a good solid pistol, Ive got a couple Uberti Remmies in a twin holster rig. Quick handling and look nice too.
