Looking for info/blueprints....

Greetings all,

I looking for drawing and info on some of more uncommon weapons of the black powder era.

I've built a few BP kits, but really hate the high cost of kits for actual replica weapons.

I have a lathe, and I'm hoping to get a mill soon. So I'm hoping to start building my own stuff.

I'm really interested in only a few weapons, the Ager "Coffee Mill" gun, the Confederate Williams gun, the Maynard, Smith, and Gallager carbines, and the Ferguson Rifle from the Revolutionary War.

I've seen working replicas of all of these weapons, so the information must exist.

Any help would be much appreciated.

What might be a good answer for you is the book "Breech-Loading Carbines of the United States Civil War Period" from John Pitman. Basically it is a reprint of an old drawing collection and includes most of the carbines including some of the exotics.
