So maybe $13.25 for musket and sling then.  According to what William Price said in The Civil War Handbook, the average cost of a musket in the 1860s was $13 (He compared this to an M1 Garand from WWII which he said was $105). Talk about how things have changed, though it does put into perspective the buying power of the dollar then and now
