Traditions wants $879.00 for an 1861 percussion Springfield kit. Dixie wants $995.00 for a ready to shoot 1861.
"...with a smooth bore mean 50 yds or less..." 75 if you're adventuresome. snicker.
"...out to 200..." Hit an elephant at this distan....." Supposedly a good shot could go to 500 during your Civil War.
I may be in a position to afford $1500.00 by May of next year so that will give me at least one long gun.
