I stopped by my local gun shop today looking for some ammo. I found some CCI 22 cal. and a box of 45 acp. I went over to my favorite section the lever gun's! Lot's of Italian lever's and single action's. Low and behold a JM Cowboy in 45-70 in about 99% cond. The 26 inch barrel with I believe is Ballard rifling. Not one mark anywhere on this fine rifle! The dealer is looking to get $975.00. It's pricey, but it's the first one I've seen in a long time. I'm going to see if he will take something in trade. I'm not sure what I'll bring in there yet. Hopefully it will be mine! What do you gentleman think of the price? The way gun's are flying off the shelf's it wont be there long!
