Miroku 1863 Springfield Type 1 refinish/upgrade

Removed the varnish and re-shaped slightly (could have removed more wood). Tall dove-tail front sight added by Whitacre. Trigger smoothed and lightened by Walt. Glass bedded, and refinished. I'm planning on adding an L shaped peep rear sight for 50 and 100 yards. Weighs in at 9.9 lbs, could probably have shaved another half pound of wood.
