1863 Springfield Type 2

Preview of my winter project, almost completed. 1863 Type 2, all original parts except for the bridle, tumbler, and Whitacre barel with sights. I cheated and found an original stock that was a bit beat up, so I didn't have to do that much inletting, and only needed a little bit of epoxy bedding. Just need to tune the lock a bit, glassbed the lock, clean up and seal the wood, and make some minor modifications to 2 of the band springs. Hope to have it completed by the team meeting. Am going to put this head to head with the newly relined Providence Tool 1861.
