    Description

    Scarce Joslyn Breech Loading Rifle Produced at Springfield Armory January To June 1865 Matching number breech block and tang, 1675, caliber 50-60-450 Joslyn Rimfire. Although long believed to be post Civil War conversions, evidence unearthed in 1972 validates that these rifles were, in fact, produced and issued during the last months of the war. Traces of B.F.Josyln markings on the face of the breech block. Metal dark with areas of light surface rust, mechanically perfect, dark bore. Wood very good, solid, with few dents and a crack at the butt. Wood with dark areas that appear to be dried grease. Cleaning rod replaced. A scarce rifle, initially produced in very limited quanity with over half of the original production converted to .50-70 and shipped to Europe, while this example remains in its original configuration.
