Sling hardware is brass including laquer on buckle. Forward loop is held by a brass button and inside portion is covered by a sewn-on leather flap.

Is it period? Personally I do not know, however, it certainly could be of that era's design. We often see slings for full-sized rifle muskets with a single, long, hook on one end and the other similarly held only by the tension of the buckle bending the leather...

Default Navy Arms CW Rifle Musket

This Navy Arms Civil War musket is the second in this thread.

It is a well made repro of the 1863 Springfield Rifle Musket. It has a 39" .58 barrel set in a heavy walnut stock. Dated 1864, these repros infamously have the name and town of Navy Arms on the lock and on top of the barrel by the breech! It is in fine condition with perfect rifling... I have to presume it was fired (if only caps and powder) given the signs, but, the metal surfaces, and this doesn't come out in the full picture below even when you click on it, are motled with black patina. Not a hint of brown rust though that's what color shows in the detail of the scratched lock which I photographed too in this case. It'll get a buffing wheel and a little jeweler's rouge to look brand new.

I believe this gun, and they were not blued, was on display somewhere or maybe in the back corner of someone's closet for a generation. It has a mid 3-digit serial number. The trigger has some sweet, consistant, travel and the let-off is sharp -- smooth lock. This is definitely a fine shooter!

Minie balls -- quite key to such arms at the time.

I'll remain a lurker until I've got something of value to post... For right now I'm enjoying your posts and pics.. I'm not a "serious" BP shooter but have many in my collection. One I'm particulary fond of is my Enfield Musket for which I'll post pic's of at a later date....
