Given the M1842, M1855, M1861 and Enfield were all banded and generally quite similar. So the same figure could be armed all these muskets and rifled-muskets. Only leaving the few still armed with flintlocks out in the cold.

Those lucky, lucky bastards. I'm torn up with envy inside.

Yes, the differences between the three-band percussion weapons would be hard to spot at 25mm scale and pretty much impossible at any smaller scale. All that leaves are some rarer things like Sharps, Spencer, Henry, and some of the two-banded weapons.

At most common gaming scales, a muzzle loader looks like any other muzzle loader.

Not really it's easy to tell the difference between a banded muskets (like French or American vs say a brown bess.
