Question for Ed regarding Berdan Conv.

Posted by Heather Frye on Tuesday, 11 September 2018, at 8:17 a.m.

I have a question for Mr. Ed Hull or anybody that can answer. According to the Man at Arms article by Ed Hull on Berdan Conversions, about 2000 Enfields were converted with the Berdan Conversion. Knowing that the blockade stopped many guns from getting to the south, I'm looking for a guess of how many of these 2000 conversions likely made it to the confederates and would still be around today with solid confederate markings. Thanks for your help!
