Default Looking for quality 1861 Springfield.

Been looking to get a reproduction 1861 Springfield to use at my clubs black powder shoots. I would like to know who makes these guns and what is the best manufacturer as far as quality and accuracy. I know Armi Sport makes one, but I am not a big fan of Chiappa. I have heard bad things about them quality wise.

For the price of a reproduction gun you can probably find an original for a little bit more. Might not be in pristine condition but it'd still be a good gun.

Peckersoli makes one, EMF, there are a lot of them for sale on Google-fu. Midway and Cabelas sell Armisport, Dixie will have them fo sho. (Armi Sport and Pedersoli, the Pedersoli is $300 more)

There were over a million made, they go thru the gun auctions frequently,,,for the price of a repro, you could have an original.

I've got an ArmiSport P53 Enfield made about 30 years ago. It shoots minute of five gallon bucket at 300 yards.
