    WTB: Mississippi Parts

    Reproductions are fine, so are originals if cheap enough. Trying to build a Harpers Ferry Fifth Alteration .58 (check out this article: https://www.militarytrader.com/milit...sissippi-rifle ), and hoping to find parts cheaper than from the usual dealers. A couple gents here on the forum have helped me out with some parts for a great deal (thanks again, guys!) so I am hoping there are others out there with stockpiles of parts they'd give me a deal on. I would also consider a reproduction rifle with a trashed barrel, stock, or both.

    I already have for MS rifle:

    Lock
    Barrel
    Buttplate
    Trigger plate & bow, missing trigger and one nut
    Sideplate
    Patchbox screws
    Ramrod
    Front band
    Rear band


    I still need for MS rifle:

    Black walnut stock, planning to get a Dunlap
    Rear barrel band spring
    Front barrel band spring
    Front sling swivel and pin
    Patchbox
    Buttplate screws
    Ramrod retention spoon and pin
    One triggerguard bow NUT
    Trigger and screw
    Reproduction lock bolts (2)
    Original style hammer (casting?)
    1855 front and rear sights, late 1859 type
    1855 bayonet lug
    Nipple
    Musket tool

    Thanks, and lemme know what you have.

    Thanks for reading, and let me know what you got.
    If you dont get any bites on here, at least for the Mississippi S&S Firearms carries most of these parts. I built a Harpers Ferry Type 4 (also known as a Type E for the NSSA) modified Mississippi and will be using it this weekend at the Cockade shoot. Sounds to me like you are trying to build a Harpers Ferry Type 5 (also known as a Type F for the NSSA) (if your rear sight is the later M1855 3 Leaf sight used on the later M1861)

    Thanks Daryl! Yeah, I'm planning on a 5th alteration, and I'm going to go with parts from S&S, DGW, Lodgewood, and The Rifle Shoppe as needed. But man do they add up! Really hoping to get some cheaper from folks on here.

    Edited to update the lists, and to remove the '61 parts for now. Going to focus on the Mississippi build. Still looking for parts, gents!

    I've found all the parts I need (I think!) except a set of patchbox screws.
