Flintlock rifles were used during the Civil War and long after. Southern and Northern units pressed them into service. The Flintlock rifle requires more firearms knowledge than the later cap locks. The cap ignition fits the modern shooters who are not well versed in primitive weapons.

Sure, and I still drive a car with a manually clutched transmission, but automatic transmissions haven't been a new development in mass produced automobiles for decades. Now, the use of CVT transmissions in mass produced passenger cars, that could still be considered a new development/application.

Show us your atlatl collection there old timer.

The South used them in the beginning but they were tossed as newer weaponry became available, usually from Northern dead. Some people have no business trying to use a caplock either.
