    I just wondered because I found out the expensive way that the brass rifle plates from S&S don't fit a '61 or '63 Springfield either.

    Mississippi butt plates are flat. 1855,1861 and 1863 butt plates are curved.

    Got that. I think I was thinking of a Zouave, but then that has a patch box. Brain fart on my part due to lack of smelling black powder smoke.....
