Price QualityRonReceived my Navy 1851 with very quick delivery! it is very much as expected, not the best quality of finish, and not very close to the original as far as strip down goes, but then the cost of it is quite low and you get what you pay for, the action works although a bit sloppy, It certainly looks the part if all you want is a theater prop or as an ornament, I intend to modify it slightly by fitting a new cylinder rod and real wedge so it does an authentic field strip and fire caps. be warned taking it apart and reassembling is a little tricky but not really difficult, plenty of advice on YouTube.
