I want to know if anyone out there has owned or shot the Cabela's 1866 rifle and your opinions on it. I know that it is manufactured by Uberti. Good rep? I love the brass receiver and the 24.25" octagonal barrel. My wife says that it will be a Father's Day gift but it is actually a bribe for accepting a [email protected]#$% cat in the house. I hope it sleeps alot but if not, well, does cat fur with a .45LC hole in it bring anything on the market these days? By the way I also seek any advice given on the matter of caliber. .45LC or .44WCF? Thanks for any opinions or advice in advance as I have tried posting this at other sites with almost no reply yet.
