Very nice example of an original Joslyn M1864 Carbine. This weapon shot a rimfire cartridge much like the Spencer that was .52 caliber and was breech loaded. Joslyn Carbines were produced from early in the war through spring 1865 with a total of 16.500 weapons made. 3500 of the M1862 and 8000 of the M1864 were official Federal Government Purchases and 4,500 privately purchased through military outfitters like Schuyler, Hartley & Graham in New York.
This example is in really good condition with the usual bumps and bruises from service. Has a nice Joslyn Firearms Co. maker marked Lockplate with 1864 date. Original sight, sling bar and ring are all reporting for duty. Mechanics are fully functional and the action works perfectly. Has a really nice bore with deep rifling. Very strong displaying Cavalry weapon. Please see all photos.
