Civil war era firearms - Paulc - 12-05-2019

Anyone have a link to or have drawings of Civil War era firearms?
Interested in reproducing pistols or rifle?
The Gibbs carbine looks particularly interesting.

The ASSRA has a number of detailed engineering drawings available.

I'm afraid the extent of my exposure to civil war era firearms is limited to my .44 cal 1851 Navy revolver.
And that was made in Italy....   Blush
