    WTB Early Zouave Navy Arms

    Looking for an early Navy Arms or other Remington Zouave. Don't mind honest wear but it needs to be mechanically sound and shootable.
    Good bore and not too beat up on the outside. Any accessories also. Old time skirmisher living in Colorado now. Very active Blackpowder shooter and
    want a Zouave to play with. Will pay fair price. Got one you bought when you first started skirmishing? Don't shoot it anymore 'cause you got a better gun? I'd be interested.

    Other two banders for sale.

    Slim,

    I have other two banders for sale. I can sell you a Confederate mounted Rifle with original stock, lock, bands and a relined barrel. Will ship in hard case with key to cut down damage in shipping. The stock has a stress crack in the breech area but not the entire way through. I shot this musket in competition and it has served me well. Because we are talking original parts and a reline, the price is double plus what you would pay for a repro Zouave. I am asking $650 shipped. I can do Paypal, Venmo, Money order or good check. PM me with email address and I can send pictures.

    Thank you for your response, but I am looking for a reproduction 1863 Remington Zouave preferably marketed by Navy Arms. Don't mind external finish wear as many of these were used by skirmishers early in the Civil War centennial days as there was not much else available. I remember going to skirmishes in those early days and looking at the original rifle/muskets in wonderful condition because that was all that could be found to shoot. I had one found but the seller discovered an unseen tang chip and for now at least, that is not what I am looking for. There were so many sold and used by reenactors rather than skirmishers many show external wear but with pristine bores. And there are those that were fired with blank rounds and never cleaned. My guess is that a skirmisher owned Zouave would be in better condition than a reenactor owned gun. That is what I am basically looking for. Unless I find something different. And I am looking for a "shooter."
    What was the other of the "2 banders" that you mentioned?

    I believe the Navy arms marked Zouaves were Antonio Zoli. They were the best
