Had to think about it a little. I've owned and shot so many types.
1) late New Haven Winchester CRF M70
2) original 54 cal US M 1841 rifle with fast 48" twist bore for conical Minie'
3) original 58 cal US M 1863/64 rifle musket for conical Minie'
Major Khan, to clarify the models. Of course everyone knows the Win M 70. However maybe not the M 1841 and M 1863. These are both originals. I shoot both with appropriate BP loads.
While they are different, from slightly different eras, I would call both "action" types-- percussion musket.
