      Jason,
       
          My pappy always said, "The action is in the Infantry."  As to your question, do you mean an 1861 or 1863 Springfield rifle or a rifled 1842 Springfield?  To my knowledge the only model 1862 out on the market is for the Richmond Rifle, which is basically a copy of the Springfield.  From that info I can advise where you may find a quality repro though the prices are getting up there.  Do to some unsavory practices I do suggest purchasing one onsite rather than through mail order and even then giving it a through look over before purchasing.

      I am thinking of "branching out" from artillery into infantry and would like to buy an 1862 Springfield muzzle loading rifle. I look forward to hearing from everyone.
