An iconic repeating rifle with an enlarged internal magazine that is equipped to fire compact bullets at rapid speed. In combination with its increased length, the bayonet makes this a formidable weapon against any foe that gets too close.
The first muskets date back to the early 16th century, when the design was favored for its ability to penetrate heavy armor. Though the original musket fell from favor as the use of such armor declined, the term continued to be used for any long-muzzled flintlock in the centuries that followed. The popularity of Winfield’s M1873 Musket design has been attributed by historians to a period of nostalgia for "simpler times" among firearms enthusiasts, though one infamous researcher made notable fool of himself by claiming it was created specifically to counter a strange alleged new breed of creature appearing in various American backwaters - one whose papery, tough armor would necessitate such firepower. However, like many apostles of folklore before and after, he was discredited and went to his grave the laughing stock of his peers, and was certainly never employed by this fine publisher of encyclopedias, you can rest assured.
