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:

There'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 outside
hammer 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.
;D

Sounds a nice collection Jon. A US friend of mine has a rather nice 19th C firearm collection, being a typical Brit I couldn't get used to the fact that they were "live" when I visited.  :rolleyes:
Decals my @r$e!

Numerous types of breechloaders, rifles and a slew of carbines:
Sharps, Burnside*, Jenks, Maynard*, Ballard*, Merril, Joslyn, etc.
Even the old Model 1819 Hall breechloader rifle in the percussion
conversion form.*

*types I have in my collection.  ;D

If you mean muzzle-loaders, yes.

Not a bad selection:
Two Pattern 1853 Tower Enfield, two Springfield Model 1863 rifles, Henry
repeater, Sharps carbine, 1860 Colt Army/1861 Colt Navy pistol, Remington
New Army pistol.
I have an 1853 Tower Enfield, 1862 production, and a Springfield Model 1861,
the M1863 was a slightly modified M1861.

The swords appear to be the M1850 Foot Officer's sword. The Confederacy
manufactured and used a copy of the sword and I have one in my collection
of stuff.

C96 + P08 With 2 magazines to have double load or two kind of ammo :thumbsup:  :o

There will be detailed explanations but the Mausers were rather early and they do not have ammunition clips like other pistols. Instead you load 10 rounds from the top, into the rectangular section in front of the trigger.

Actually, the C96 has a 10-round internal magazine that you can feed by stripper clips.
Anyway: no detachable magazines.

The selective fire 7.63mm Model 1932 has a detachable box magazine.
