I believe about everyone in the hobby has seen the picture of a breach failure of a Indian made musket. If you have not, google around. That said, are all Indian muskets bad?
I have read and heard so many negitive things written and said about Indian weapons, but I have yet to hear about anyone weapon or source. I do not like to paint a broad brush and love to hear from owners or former owners of thier experiances. REAL information, and not just hearsay. I'll start with mine. (disclaimer, this is not a promotion, just my experiance with one Indian weapon)
I own one Indian weapon. A 1842 Springfield reproduction sold to me by Veteran Arms LLC. It has been a stout weapon, and had only one problem. Where the hammer was attached, the corner had been rounded, so that the hammer slipped a inch. In other words it had some give. Didn't effect the fire, but it might with time cause a problem in the cocking of said weapon. Charles of Veteran Arms, fixed this problem free of charge, which is a big plus in my book. The weapon has been a real shooter, and I have no fear live firing buck and ball with it. It was field proofed at Veteran Arms before shipping. I defarbed the stock, and it looks "fairly" accurate to a original I once owned.
That said, what have been your experiances. I sure there are some real dogs out there, if so where did you get them. I believe sharing the knowlege instead of just running down all Indian weapons would better serve the reenactor.
