That really gets to the point. Arms in PACS units were pretty much dictated by the quartermasters. The Army just couldn't provide munitions for a whole lot of different guns. As a general matter, the PACS never lacked for arms after the first year, so the "ragged rebel" myth fails at this point. Most PACS units were pretty uniformly armed with modern, for the time, percussion muskets from the winter/spring of '63 on. The AOT was not as uniform nor as well equipped as the ANV, but it wasn't exactly embattled farmers with squirrel guns either. Lots of '42 Springfields, lots of '61 Springfields - the Yankees couldn't seem to hold on to them - and lots of .54 Lorenz', though the men tended to call them Enfields, and some P1853 Enfields as well. You could find a man with almost any weapon in almost any unit, but the general run was pretty uniform.
