If you expect to spend only $200.00 for any long weapon, you're dreaming.
You may be able to get a used one for about $200.00 less than a new, out of the box model, but that's a different animal.

If, by pure luck, you happened to stumble onto someone willing to sell an Enfield for $200, it'd be sold to someone else before you could sneeze.
For even a used musket with issues you can expect to pay a lot more. Don't even bother wasting your time if you're only willing to spend $200. Be prepared to spend at least $350 (and that's if you're patient and lucky) for a used Enfield--Springfields and Richmonds will go for even more.

I have an half original and half repro with a stretched stock Enfield that you can have for $395 shipped to your door.
It was my gun when I reenacted many years ago when Lincoln and Lee still knew each other.
The Enfield has an original lock and repro Parker Hale barrel.
When you are done with it, you can sell your original parts on Ebay and recuperate most of your cost.

Hope this is helpful,

what is the weight for this one it sounds like it should be okay. i know that my adjutant and my unit commander asked me to see what the specifications are on it and if you could describe it for me. i am willing to pay that much for this one of course.
