They look great, even if they are over 1,000 dollars.
those aren't muskets. muskets were old even when those were made. those are the types of guns used in WWI.

I do a lot of period fencing, (think 3 musketeers, Dumas, not the candy bar!) and fencing really came about due to the firearm coming of age on the battlefield.
So, how to recreate a firearm that takes time to load and fires sufficiently well that we can feel it when on the battlefield, without being too hard to hit, and can't use chemical power for projectile... (sound familiar??? Sounds like airsoft to me....)
Anyway, this guy I know came up with a rifle that fired a 1" rubber ball. Used surgical tubing for the "spring" power. Had a ram rod that you pushed the ball in with to lock the latch mechanism, and a matchlock looking trigger that stuck into the back of the barrel to catch the aforementioned lock. There were two pieces of surgical tubing that stretched out, and pushed a rod forward to drive the plunger piece that pushed the ball itself. Sounds complicated, but really quite simple. Took about 20 seconds to reload, which was accurate, and would throw a rubber ball about 100 yds pretty well, and fairly accurately.
Thought about building one for myself, just haven't taken time. Only a couple of parts that take any kind of tough machining, rest is straight forward enough.
Might be a possiblity for the airsoft field to take out and have as a surprise for someone... old farmer with his matchlock popping you with a big projectile.
