BlueTrain, until recent decades, military procurement often ran slowly, either due to limited funds, or traditionalist generals. Look at how, even when the Krag was adopted, the Army tried to force it into single shot mode.

Were civilians as a whole better armed? Not necessarily. Could individual civilians have legally been better armed, for most of US history? Yes.
