Al, I have photos from 2 visits to the Cody museum. They include weapons that were on loan from the Smithsonian. Regrettably for me, the Smithsonian firearms had to go back.
The Cody collection is fabulous! They have firearms going back to the 1400s and others representing every major war involving the USA.
Also, there are Hollywood guns, holsters and gun belts - those from Bonanza, Have Gun Will Travel, and more.
Ron

Well I knew it would happen! Reloading the second shot today with the flintlock, that flexy ramrod broke a few inches above my hand while pushing a ball down. Not sure how it broke above, but it did. Luckily it didn't break below or in my hand because that hurts!

Not a big deal, I knew the ramrods were much to flexy and at some point, will break. I'll be ordering hickory ramrods for all the rifles before hunting season.

After looking at this gun again Jon I wonder why they didnt use all the same for the hardware. Either all brass or all iron. Not sure about the combination of the two. Al

brown and silver goes together nicely. I probably will pull the wedge key plates off some time and polish them nice more of a pop.
