    Default Muskets

    For people getting into the hobby and looking for muskets there is Armslist.com and gunbroker.com . It is not uncommon to see Enfields at gunbroker selling for around $650, we're talking about the nice Italian stuff and not the Indian made junk.

    There are lots of the (unclean [farby]) Zouaves for sale at both sites. Also, Armslist has the "weird" stuff like musket caps.

    This is just information for people to use at their units. I would not sell an Enfield (don't care for the Springfield, just a personal thing) because a better Italian weapon shoots just fine and the Enfields are not a half bad deer rifle. In my state it gets another two weeks to the deer hunting season.

    your best bet is to haunt reenactor companies looking for someone leaving reenacting. Everyone wants to keep thier gear
    in the loop, and help a pard with a good price when possible.
