Try going to or Both have forums where you can post pictures of your firearms and ask for help identifying them. The people on both sites are very knowlegeable about antique military weaponry. If nothing else, I'm sure they can point you in the right direction from there. Good luck. -Jimpie

If your referring to the "muzzle loading" musket/rifle; the US Army's last offical use of that weapon was the US Civil War. In 1866 the US Army adapted the metallic cartridge 50-70 single shot rifle. Then in 1873, the US Army got rid of the 50-70 and adapted the 45-70 Government cartridge. Both sides used the musket/rifle in the Civil War. A muzzle loading musket could be either smooth bore or rifled. However, generally speaking, whenever a man used the term "musket", it was usually presumed to be a smooth bored weapon.
