I am putting my Enfield up for sale... again. I am asking $1400, shipping not included. I will only ship to the lower 48 states.
If you've seen the price and are still reading, here are the details of the musket:
This piece was custom-built for me by John Hakes using a combination of repro and original parts. The lock was built by John using all original parts, including the finest hammer I've ever seen. Lock is marked "1862/Tower". Lock function is crisp and solid, the way you would expect an original lock to be. Clicks are loud and clear, very different from any reproduction.
Stock was crafted from a Guy Owens blank and is a very nice fiddle-back grain walnut. Triggerguard, trigger assembly, and buttplate are original and feature contoured screw heads, as per originals. The nose-cap is a reproduction. Top and bottom bands are reproduction, as is the barrel (Euroarms) and rammer (thin shank from Lodgewood). The center band is original that retains traces of the original bluing.
This musket was a labor of love. Collecting the parts and waiting for John to build it was a two-year process. The price may seem steep, but trust me, I've got a lot more invested in this thing! I paid $200 for the hammer alone from Bill Osborne. Throw in the other original parts, plus John's shop time, and this was not a cheap or easy project!
I also have an orginal Enfield lock, marked "1862/Tower". It is in good condition and functions well, but does not include the hammer. This will be $145 + shipping, which is what I paid.
I will post pics of the musket and lock sometime tomorrow. Thanks for looking!
