I just received the US Springfield Model 1861 rifle-musket I purchased before Christmas (mail gets slooooow in December). It was made in 1863 by the Norwich Arms Company, which was the biggest civilian contractor for Springfield rifles during the Civil War (with the possible exception of Colt, who didn't actually build them to standard - but that's another story). Very nice, and in original condition with original bayonet - which makes a pretty impressive setup when you put it all together!
