As I opined, they might well have been issued both. Help me out here, are the calibers the same? In August, 1862, the supply of rifled muskets was just beginning to take off.

If I might speculate some, those rifled muskets went to more veteran regiments who gave up their smoothbores to newer regiments.

But I'm guessing.
