American Civil War Traders...

Post by RichMarcos »

I have recently got back into livin history, after a 10 year absence, so am a little out the loop. Can anyone please recommend any particularly good (in terms of authenticity) ACW suppliers in the UK?

Many thanks.

You would probably be best off asking any group you may be planning on joining as they will have recommended or in-house suppliers.

www.civilwarsutler.co.uk and West Point www.westpointalbionsmallarms.co.uk/ are probably the best known in the UK but I think most of the stuff they sell is made in india or pakistan so quality and authenticity may be variable.

Have a look on the SoSKAn and ACW websites for suggested traders.

couple of stockists on ebay but as per a post above, they are importers i think. I have lots of their stuff for background and similar hire but I doubt they'd pass muster for a serious lh presentation. 'Vivanderie' is one i seem to recall
