Tulsa show prices

Ridiculous! So-so pieces (fair to good) rifles were priced at $750 or more. I saw a fair M1888 at $1200. I saw an 1869 "cadet", with sling swivels (!) for $795 (if memory serves me), while, elsewhere, I saw a .45-70 "cadet"-again with sling swivels for a little more. Admittedly, I did not walk around very much, but I saw enough to know that Al and others who participate on this board are one's best bet. I also saw several put togethers of mixed .45 and .50 ancestries (CW lockplatesm stocks with flats, etc.). Tulsa is a hit and miss sbow, and while I have never been to a show on either coast, I am sure that the quality is better outside of the Tulsa show.
