What is a rifle musket?

A rifle musket is a musket that has a rifled barrel. Until the mid 19th century, the standard infantry weapon of most of the world's armies was a smoothbore, long-barreled, muzzleloading musket with a relatively large bore. Rifles, with shorter barrels and smaller bores were also in use, but primarily by specialized troops. With the invention of the Minie style bullet, which allowed much faster loading than the traditional patched ball, the more accurate rifling started to replace a smooth bore as the standard for infantry use. Initially, existing smooth bore muskets were converted to "rifled-muskets". The term meaning a musket that had been rifled. In the mid 1850s new musket designs such as the British Pattern 1853 (Enfield) and the US Model 1855 (Springfield) became the standard. These weapons, which were originally designed with rifled barrels, were called "Rifle Muskets" or "Rifle-Muskets" to distinguish them from the shorter barreled rifles.
