    Anybody know what this ML is?

    Looks like something the US issued a long time ago. Sidelock muzzleloader. Looks like markings have been stamped over each other?

    Anyone know what it is?

    Splitting my time between the montane and the mesas

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,

    Your link confirmed my first thoughts. That was one of the more common of the Civil War rifles. There are more than one museum in and around Gettysburg that have rooms full.
