Just bought a new Alaskan .454 for $800 at local shop. Gander Mtn. has a scratched up used one for $700 but they usually are a bit higher on guns. I'd say around $675 - $725 if it is in 98-99% range. Great Gun!!
The model # FC13REF2 is in the Field Carry section which is accessed by clicking on the Field Carry icon on the left side of the Mernickle homepage. Chris at Mernickle told me that there was about a 5 week turnaround on my order.
Tankhead - I just ordered the Mernickle holster for my 454 Alaskan. Go to their website and click on field carry. I ordered the one with the bear paw. First saw it on Gunblast in the archive file. This holster is worn crossdraw.
I just ordered a new Alaskan 2 1/2 in. in .454. Been wanting one for many years. I realize that the factory grips are there to absorb the shock, but has anyone used wood instead? If so, any pics and info?
