Rifle vs Musket – 19th Century Military History

Looking specifically at the P1853 Rifle vs the East India Company Model F smoothbore musket here, but considering the wider implications of gun development in the middle of the 19th century. 

A little assemblage of Indian weapons that could have been used in the war of 1857-8, including an HEIC percussion musket as used by many Indian sepoys, two hide dhal (shields) and a basket hilted firanghi sword (probably circa 1800 in origin, but they were still shown in use in the 1850s).
