Hi, on a recent trip to my club I saw the a Cowboy Action guy. He showed me his really sweet Colt Lightning in 32-20. I wiped the drool of my chin and went to the rifle range. At the 25 yard range an old timer was shooting an original 1873 Musket in 44-40. It was in about 98% condition and was shooting less than an inch at 25 yards. He told me that the serial # came from the block that was taken to Nicaragua in 1910. Some never left the factory so he believes this may be one. What a day, , regards, Mike

I think at least one company is making a recreation of the Lightning. In .38/.357 that's be an interesting item. No idea on prices.
