I am only speaking from a Saskatchewan perspective here and my own preference for purchasing things from locally owned "Mom and Pop" stores. Go to a local gun show. My Muzzleloader club puts one on each year and all the vendors in Saskatchewan show up. That way you can talk to everyone and discuss what they have or are willing to get for you. Hope that helps.

Thanks all. My eye has been caught by the 1874 Sharps 'Quigley' rifle. I've been tempted by something similar before.

I looked at a Sharps many years ago, and wish now I'd bought it. At $999.00 it was a sweet deal. They're a bit more pricey now. Also looked at an 1853 pattern Enfield rifle.

I'm going to see if the local dealers can order it in.

I have an Enfield Muskatoon, by Parker Hale. Not being made any more. You will have to order something made in Italy, but they do good work.

Thanks. I'm wishing I'd done more impulse weapons buying in my youth.

:lol: ...Yeah..I've passed up a few over the years. I do want a flintlocke too. Not too sure if I want a replica, or try and get an original. I'm leaning to the replica, ya know, so I don't feel guilty when I take it to the gravel pit and blow off a pound or two of powder... :wink:

Had a chance to buy some sweet looking 303 Lee Enfields for $400.00 too.

Dumbass moment when I didn't.

Yeah, I've seen quite a few rough looking Enfields for over $400 now at gun shows and such. The nicest part about those old Enfields, they are one of the most accurate firearms even by today's standards. With the load I worked up for my snipers rifle, almost identical ballistics to the original British cordite load with 174 grain bullets, you literally can dump the bullets in the same hole when fixed in a shooting vice.

Forget it, purchase from someone local, even if it costs just a bit more .

Agreed. I'll let them deal with the paperwork.
