Re: P58 Enfield and the N-SSA
Yes, that confirms what I have found too ... Thank you.

I’m just disappointed that they combine the “short” rifle muskets (ie rifles) and the “long” rifle muskets in the same category. With the 1853 Enfield and the 1861 Springfield making up the largest numbers of shoulder arms during the Civil War, I had hoped otherwise.
Thanks for all your input, it was very helpful.
