From what I have read on Civil War over the years one of the reasons for resistance to repeating rifles from the Army brass was ammo supply. The Army had enough problems trying to supply the different caliber rifles they had bought from the arsenals of the various European countries. It was a supply logistics nightmare and they didn't want add more problems.
