I am in need of some Rifles and Muskets for the F&I war period in 25/28mm. Anyone make a spur or seperate weapons pack of these?

Fat fingers should be 18th century but I think most will figure it out.

RSM and Front Rank sell separate weapons.

I don't think RSM has a web presence anymore. Will check out Front Rank. I did see where Dayton painting has the line now.

What is the difference between these?

Banded Muskets
Non-banded Muskets

It's whether or not the barrels are held in place by bands (Charleville) or pins (Brown Bess).

I think.

Yes – that's the difference.

DPC is alive and very well and it is very easy to order RSM figures from them.

The banded muskets are sturdier and more detailed than the non-banded muskets, FYI, and I use the former quite frequently.

banded muskets would be carried by the French, and the non-banded by the English and Provincial forces.

The metal fixtures on the non-banded musket (escuchten plate, butt tang, side plate, pipes, nose cap) would be brass, and the banded muskets steel.
