Looking for a Revolutionary or Civil War era Musket.
 
Hello folk of this forum!

I am new here so bear with me. I am looking for a Revolutionary or Civil War era Musket. That is right, I am looking for something this is just about priceless.:D

Since that is almost next to impossible I will settle for a kit that resembles the above mentioned weapons. I may or may not shoot it, I have not thought that far ahead. However, I do intend to antique the kit to look exactly like a musket from that time period for a decoration on my wall. It will hang just below my copies of the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Bill of Rights, and for you jokesters out there, they are not original copies. I am not that old.:D

So if anyone out there can help locate said rifle, please let me know.

Thanks!

Tracy

Check out Dixie gun works. They have a website and are one of the premier black powder companies out there. They will have a replica of what you are looking for at a reasonable price.

TD, everything is relative but CW arms are fairly affordable. Rev. War less so and rarer but doable.

If u r gonna antique it anyway, I go original antique if u can. Yes, repros, especially used, can be had easily and affordably.

$1500-2000 will get you a real Civil War era musket. Not even close to priceless. For around $5000 you can get a Brown Bess, probably much less if you don't want one that is in shooting condition. Replicas are cheap and easy to find http://www.militaryheritage.com/muskets.htm

I've had good luck with Middlesex Village Trading forthe 18th Century Flintlock muskets of all kinds.

I have built several guns, and I have had the best luck with Track of the Wolf for the parts I use. Pecatonica River Longrifles is good too. I get a few things from Dixie, but I have better luck with Track.

Yep track is great too. For random goodies I usually use crazy crow. Traditions often has good stuff also.

The Discriminating General sells absolute junk which I believe are all "seconds." Imagine that, India made rejected repros!!!

Oh, and their customer service adds insult to injury.
