With the musket related mods out there they have genrally always been 18th Century Long Muskets and Rifles. Though good I feel a better Firearm Mod for Skyrim would be a musket from C. 16th Century such as a Arquebus or Matchlock Carbine.
I feel that this type of Firearm Mods would fit better as Arquebus, Matchlock Carbine or even a Japanese Pillock Carbine are a simialr length and size to the crossbows and would therefore fit the animation profile a lot better, I know the crossbow animation on it would look a bit off but it would be a fun interesting mod to play around with, also if firearms were to be introduced to Tamriel it would start out with something like a Arquebus.
I hope this mod idea has inspired someone
