    For starters, try GunBroker.com Online Gun Auction

    Be prepared to pay!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    One admonition, be careful before you restore any antique firearm that you will not hurt the collector value. Some are worth more if they are left in original condition. If you are wanting to tinker, several manufacturers make civil war era musket kits that you finish and put together.
    God bless our troops!

    Stranger,
    Let us know what you are looking for and we'll go from there. The 3 most common weapons that you would be able to get reproduction parts from would be the 42 and 61 Springfields and and the P53 Enfields.

    Thanks for the replies...
    Currently, I am just starting to look into arms available of this era. I am working backward into time...plus a little filling in the gaps as opportunity allows. My plan is to acquire a few and perform a complete restoration on the least valuable in its current condition for a working display piece.
