Default Help with ID'ing a flintlock Remington

Hello,
I am a handgun collector but along with inheriting them from my father, I also have this Remington's 1858 manufactured in Ilion NY. I see some info on the web but nothing definitive to help me id it. I have included pics and was wondering if someone would have the time to look and possibly id this one. I tried to take pics of the markings. barrel shows 1857 and NJ and the buttplate has US on it.
Thanks in advance for your help!
Jeff

JS:

Post some additional photos of the overall rifle.

JS, this is not a flintlock. I cannot identify it, but then again I am no expert.

For the "real" experts out there, is that a "tape" priming system on the side-lock?

Default Deleted two pics and added two different ones

TX: Since I can only post 4 total pics, I added these two that hopefully show the gun better:

I just realized that I can embed a link to the picture and not the actual pic so here are the rest I was trying to offer for a view:

I have embedded images as well as links to additional photos which I think allows me to post more than four?, submitted, waiting for the moderators to post. Thanks! Jeff

It's an 1861 Springfield rifle musket contracted by Remington with a Maynard tape priming system.

Thanks Hawg! I really appreciate you taking the time to ID the musket pics I posted. It gives me a great start in looking up more info around the history and what if any value the gun holds!

Default RemingtonMaynard conversion

JSWalker, hi.

I was watching your auction on this firearm on Gunbroker but missed out on a chance to bid. Will you be relisting it? I am interested in it if you are. Please email me at coinsmith@coinsmith.com. My name is Chuck, and I'm a collector for over 40 years.
