What weapons were available when the 2nd Amendment was passed?

What 'arms' looked like when the 2nd Amendment was written ...

The typical firearms of the day were muskets and flintlock pistols. They could hold a single round at a time, and a skilled shooter could hope to get off three or possibly four rounds in a minute of firing. By all accounts they were not particularly accurate either.

If you want to be an "originalist" then only the above weapons should be allowed.
