Hello community

Questions about Brown Bess Conversions by the British Military.

1. Were these reproofed ?

2. Did the British use a cone in system or drum or rebreeched?

3. Was there any conformity? Or standard ordenannce parts used for conversions such as a specific third model hammer ?

4. Were there any conversions that also required the musket to be re-bored?

Thanks !
