    Great Book. I picked up my copy at Springfield Armory National Historic Site two Friday's ago and am extremely well pleased I bought it.

    My wife got me a copy of this from "Track of the Wolf". I am a musket "nerd" and this really has the minutia of US military muskets that keeps me entertained. I am the type of person who, when watching something historical on TV, has to point out what "they" got right or got wrong with regards to props.

    Springfield Ma is an armpit, but the Museum is well worth a visit. Bring a camera.

    LOL!! Well, I can see you have been to the city. :) :D

    I first went there in 1984 and 1985 to go through Smith and Wesson Armorer's Schools and enjoyed that a lot, though on my first trip it snowed 14 inches in one afternoon and the Armorer's School closed the following day, but opened the day after. On the weekends, I hit Springfield Armory and the Antique stores not too far away and enjoyed that immensely. Wasn't able to go through the Antique shop area on my trip at the end of September this year, though.
