BTW: Was any retrocharge rifle used in American Civil War?Retrocharge? Do you mean repeating?, if so, then yes:the Henry lever action (predecessor of the Winchester 1873 and descendant of the Volcanic),and the Spencer being the most effective.There were other less effective types like the Triplett & Scott which had an odd method of action:http://www.littlegun.info/arme%20americaine/artisan%20t%20u%20v/a%20triplett%20and%20scott%20gb.htmThere's a Triplett & Scott rifle sitting in the closet about ten feet away from where I sit typing this reply,along with ten other Civil War/19th century US firearms and other odds n sods, including three outsidehammer damascus barrel shotguns - two 12 and one 10 bore, two WWI firearms - a Pattern 14 Enfield & a Canadian Ross, and various other newer bang sticks, including an AR-7 for playing James Bond.
