Note: Please talk to a unit member prior to ordering gear, weapons, or uniforms.  We want to help make sure what you intend to purchase is correct.

You will need a reproduction percussion cap type; “3 band” rifled musket. The 1853 British Enfield 3 band Rifle is the “Official” rifle of Company D. Photo of original Enfield from Company D. 1861 Springfield rifles and 1862 Richmond Armory Rifles are acceptable. Due to safety concerns, NO rifles made in Pakistan or India will be allowed. You will also need a bayonet with scabbard to fit your particular musket. For information on blank cartridges click here.
