I have an 1861 Springfield rifle put out by Colt in .50 caliber, called their "Gamemaster". It was designed to be used as a hunting rifle with a fast twist for conicals etc. It is in superb condition; I've probably taken it to the range twice and decided I'm not going to hunt, so it's a beautifully kept safe queen, with a pristine barrel. I can get you pics tomorrow if you like. Comes with a sling and capper and instruction sheet which gives Colt recommended loading data. I would ship it in a hard case. I would be willing to sell it for a very reasonable price, as I'd like someone to get some use out of it; it's too nice to be wasted in my safe.

I have a Pedersoli 1861 I'd sell. Never fired, could come with a box of various Minie balls, sling, and repo cartridge box, if interested. Nowhere near Ohio, though, if that's a deal breaker.
