If you would like your older musket to look new again, let me take care of that for you.  I can thoroughly clean and oil your weapon, saving you the time and effort for a reasonable cost. 


Services


Complete cleaning and detailing:  Your musket is taken apart to the last component and thoroughly cleaned.  Rust will be removed and all metal parts polished up.  I go over every component of your lock and clean and oil them.  The barrel will be brought back to an armory bright finish if it is unblued.  Blued and browned barrels will have rust removed, polished and oiled.  You won't think it's your gun when you get it back and it will be ready for years more service.   This would be a great thing to do at the end of the reenacting season or if you are thinking about selling your musket.  Clean muskets bring top dollar.    $70


Barrel treatment:  If you just want your barrel cleaned inside and out I can do that for you too.   I will pull the breech plug if you desire and inspect the interior, make sure it is in good shape, clean it and also clean and detail the outside and give it a light coat of oil.   $30


Pistol Work:  I can also defarb, repair and tune your pistol but prices will vary depending on what it is and what you want done.  


Stock cartouches:  I can mark your musket with the proper stock cartouche and inspector marks.  I have stamps available for Birmingham and London Armoury Enfields, 1861 Springfields and 1842 Springfields.   See list below for prices.


Barrel stamping:  Accurate Proof marks can be put on your barrel for Birmingham or London Enfields and Springfield muskets.  I can also stamp a Brown Bess barrel with London marks.  $20


Lockplate stamping:  For 1841 Springfield (Mississippi) and Enfields.  $35
