I found 2 civil war era rifles, both muzzleloaders. Both came from Eastern Europe and are stamped with Ohio Regimental Marks and numbers.

Where can I reference these at?

Sounds interesting, Ben. Are they Turkish, by chance? If so, I can show you some pages dedicated to Turkish ML's and their stamps, but without knowing what the stamps are or seeing the gun, I can't help you.

The Ohio regimental stamps were added once they got here though, not at the armory. It helps tie them down to where they went once they were imported though. :cool:

Sorry I forgot about this thread, they were made in Hungary. One has been changed from a muzzleloading rifle to a muzzle loading shotgun. The other is still a rifle of either .36 caliber or possibly a .45?

Sorry no pics and they went to a Civil War collector in Ohio.
