    I posted this on the muzzleloading section, but this is probably the best location for this thread.

    I may sell a 1861 Enfield musket/muzzleloader. What I really need to know is if this is a re-manufacture or an original. I am pretty sure it is a Re-Manufactured, but will put that up to the pros :D. See the pics below.

    It is in very good condition for its age. Its wood stock is one piece. It has what looks to be an original sling on it and has ramrod. .58 caliber. It is definitely shootable.

    The top reads:
    ARMI SAN PAOLO-BRESCIA-ITALY
    CAL. 58-3 1/2 DRAMS BLACK POWDER ONLY

    Engraved by the hammer, there is a crown, and underneath the crown it reads:

    1861
    ENFIELD


    Also, any other info that I should know would be helpful. This gun is also for sale so offers are welcome. Thanks

    Armi Chiappa is a reproduction arms manufacturing Co. they started business just after WWII. This firearm you list and show they stopped production in 1990. But they still produce many others that look dam nice.

    They also produce modern handguns along with Air Soft weapons.

    The sales price at auction for this model is running around $395.00 U.S. in 90% good condition
