    More conversions by Merrill

    I finally got around to reading sections of Moller's vol. III book, searching for "Merrill". These two definitely piqued my interest. Whole bunch of online searches turned up absolutely nothing, but maybe somebody in this forum might have a book showing the Tryon 1841/1844 converted by Merrill, or the 1861 Whitney/Plymouth rifle with his conversion. Figure if Moller hadn't owned it, only other likely place would be in some museum, and I've pretty much exhausted my museum inquiries here in the states.

    I should be receiving this month Merrill carbine photos from the curator at the Grand Curtius Liege Museum in Belgium (www.grandcurtius.be). He's also going to provide photos of a Soper for me.

    Can anyone with an extensive firearms book collection let me know if any book has these? Thanks.

    Anyone with books you could recommend I check out? There's a big library nearby in Milwaukee I could check out. Eric.
