So till now I've mostly collected C&R firearms from the WW2 era for historical purposes. I've decided to try out a black powder musket and from the research I've done, I plan to place an order with Loyalist Arms. I've always had a soft heart for carbines therefore I'm deciding between their British 1756 artillery carbine (based on Brown Bess) or their French 1777 carbine (based on Charleville). Curious if anyone has opinions. I'm leaning towards the French 1777 carbine due to the small/handy size, the barrel bands (should make disassembly easier), and general looks. On the other hand I'm not sure of the historical accuracy of it nor does it appear to have been used in the Revolutionary war (honestly maybe not that important for me). The Artillery carbine is a bit longer, is a model used in the Revolutionary war, looks nice BUT the pins seem to make disassembly a bit more difficult (realizing though you don't have to remove the barrel for each cleaning). Thoughts?
