I recently saw a west coast website of 116th PA reenactors stating that proper arms for the 116th early years' portrayals were Model M1842 or 1816/22 conversion muskets. The only printed info that I can find in reference to the issuing of weapons to the 116th states that they were issued smoothbores... the conclusion being that they were M1842.

Does anyone know of documentation showing they were issued M1816/22 conversion muskets?
