    Model 1864 Joslyn Carbine. This is a superb example of the second model of this reliable carbine. Joslyn Firearms Company produced purchased about 8,000 of these carbines during the Civil War and another 4,500 were sold privately. Due to the lack of inspector's marks, this example probably falls into the latter category. This example has the standard 22" rifled barrel, with "Joslyn Firearms Co./ Stonington/ Conn" on the lock and a "US" mark on the butt plate. The carbine retains about 80% of the original blue and the wood stock has never been sanded. This example is complete and in excellent working condition. The second model exists in odd calibers though the stated caliber is .52 rimfire though apparently variants in .44 rimfire and .56-.56 Spencer rimfire have been noted.

    The Joslyn carbine was extensively used during the Civil War and was issued to many Union cavalry regiments.
