Civil War Muskets
 
Any civil war reenactors or civil war weapon buffs here?

I just got a bunch of US Civil War era muskets and parts. Some are almost complete, others are completely disassembled, and I have a lot of spare parts in bags, sideplates, hammers, springs/cams, a few stocks, stock foregrips, bands, etc. Looking to reassemble them to be historically accurate, if not I'll part them out. Most of the stuff I have is US Springfield with dates ranging from 1834-1864. Have some .58 rifled and .69 smooth barrels as well as an Allin 50-70-450 breech loader conversion barrel. Nothing is for sale just yet, still trying to figure out what I have and do inventory.

Just posting feelers now, will post pics and inventory if someone who can help me out replies. Tried posting in a Civil War group on FB and got my post removed for violating community guidelines, even though I was asking for info. and not listing for sale.:sad20:

TIA

Pitchers Damnit.

There is enough of a well here to get you pointed in the right direction.

Are you knowledgeable about this stuff already, or are you way in over your head?

Can already tell this will be a great thread.

Ok I'll post pics, or it didn't happen.

I know a little bit about Civil War weaponry, but don't know all the models and variants. Haven't been able to find any good sites about them. https://www.gunvaluesboard.com was somewhat helpful by looking at the pics and reading the comments below.

I need to resize my photos and take some more of the individual side plates and I'll upload them.

Stocks.
Top one looks like a standard Springfield musket, left side is routed out for the metal "L" shaped bracket
Bottom two look like carbines maybe cavalry.

Middle one looks original on front, not chopped. Has "64" stamped into wood stock where barrel rests.

The bottom most one has a sliding trap door with 2 holes drilled out and touching, maybe to hold cartridge rounds either .45-70 or .50-70?
Stock foregrip was chopped, might have the matching piece lying around.

I have 3 of these plates and hammers, not sure what they are off of. If anyone could chime in it would be much appreciated.

Another unknown sideplate and hammer, looks like someone cleaned it up and probably devalued it.
