I am new here...but I should know better!!! I have long CRAVED a LeMat pistol, and have had half-baked ideas of doing cavalry reenactment/living history forever...so, when I had the chance to snatch up a pair of new unfired Pietta Cavalry LeMats as well as a Navy model in the same condition, I took a deep breath and sent the cash. Of course, that was before I really thought about that I would be doing the gig in the Western Theater where (1) no one had LeMats, and (2) most troopers only carried one pistol. So, I have no carbine, no 1851 Navy, no 1860 Army, no 1858 Remington, no muskatoon or musket (well, a Zoli 1863 Remington Contract Rifle, but that is worse!), and three gorgeous LeMats!!
The obvious: Does anyone want to buy one or more of my LeMats ($700 each plus shipping) or trade me out of one or more of them for the arms I need...and/or uniforms, boots, saddle, etc etc...? I would prefer a Sharps Carbine (yeah, what a surprise!), both an 1851 Navy and an 1860 Army (for CS and US gigs), appropriate leather goods, and a McClellan saddle.
Any takers? Any thoughts? Any suggestions now that the horse is out of the barn?
