I have an semi-original .58 Springfield for sale or trade. The stock has initials carved in it. The barrel and ramrod are after market. The ramrod was actually made by a guy in the 70s. He did such a fine job he had to make them a bit thinner to keep them from being passed as original.
The musket has front site modified for 100 yards. The previous owner shot it for those events in the N-SSA.
Barrel bands are original but of course the swivel on the middle band is missing.
A little surface rust on the gun as I just got back from a wet reenactment.
I'm looking for federal shell jackets and trousers, artillery boots, etc. or make an offer. Having a tough time posting pics so please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you...R.
