1863 Remington "Zouave" Rifle History
I'm looking to buy a rifle musket that I can use for reenacting and shooting with my locate N-SSA group. They have recommend an 1863 Remington "Zouave" Rifle to get me started.
They also recommend I also look into an 1841 Mississippi Rifle.
However, it does take too much searching to find that the Remington is disrespected in the reenacting community. I just can seem to find out why. It seems to be a upgrade of the M1841 Mississippi ... but that is merely my opinion.
Thanks, in advance, for any information you can share.
