There are a lot of Model 1866 rifles out there and prices tend to be relatively modest. Unless the metal and remaining wood are really nice, I do not see restoration be worth the cost and effort, unless you really like to do that sort of work yourself.
Otherwise, be patient and look for a decent complete example. My guess is that $1,000-1,200 will get a very nice one, and you can always dicker a bit.
