I'm sorry if this is off current topics and if it is, I'm sorry but if you can assist me I'd be greatly appreciative. I was on a site a few days ago and the had several Civil War muskets (new repro, live firing) muskets and one model was produced in a lefty version.  For the life of me, I cannot locate that site and believe me when I tell you I've searched through my computer's history, Google, etc. So if any of you folks have that site saved or know of this ghost site, please let me know. Thank you in advance.

I don't know what the site is but I can try to help. But before I can do that I've gotta ask a question. Was the site selling muskets or just showing a demonstration?

Hellcat;

 The site was selling firing new production muskets. They had a colorful website with the longguns running down vertically each contained in its own border. Why I didn't save the site is beyond me!!!!!! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Sorry, I struck out last night with the sutler sites I've got linked to links to. One of the links did surprise me as it linked to Cabelas. I'm trying a search on Yahoo and Google but I've got no real expectations.

I'm unaware of any military musket at the time produced in a left hand model. A left handed shooter would have a hell of a time in the ranks he would have been expected to shoot right handed.

There was a current site, one which offered certain modern repro muskets available for the left handed shooter (hammer mounted on the left side, etc). I was on this site a couple of weeks ago but have failed to locate it since then even after an extensive search.
