Fine CIVIL WAR Antique Joslyn 1864 Cavalry Carbine

Fine & Scarce Carbine with Crisp Cartouches

Here we present an antique Joslyn Model 1864 Civil War Cavalry Carbine, made circa 1864 in Stonington, Connecticut. Benjamin Franklin Joslyn was the inventor, holding over 25 firearms patents. 8,000 of these carbines were purchased by the Union during the American Civil War, and they all saw service, being heavily allocated to cavalry regiments such as the 4th and 8th Indiana, 19th New York, 13th Tennessee, 9th Pennsylvania, 3rd West Virginia, 2nd Wisconsin, 1st Nebraska, 1st Nevada and 11th Ohio. As a result of his success with the carbine, the federal government ordered 3,000 of his breech-loading actions in order to build the U.S. National armory made breech-loading rifles. These were made for the proprietary cartridge called the 50-60-450 Joslyn Rimfire. This pre-dates the Allin conversion and some of these 3,000 rifles are suspected to have been issued and used just before the end of the American Civil War.

This historical saddle ring carbine features a lock marked “JOSLYN FIREARMS CO./STONINGTON CONN./1864”. The two inspector cartouches on the left side of the carbine are very crisp and are “FDL”. There is also a faint “FDL” stamp just forward of the “US” marked butt plate. A small “S” can be found just rear of the trigger guard tang.

This specimen is in fine overall condition. The barrel retains about 70% of the original bluing. The other iron parts show muted case colors. The markings are clear and legible. The serial numbers match. The walnut stock shows use, but it in fine condition 152 years after the end of the Civil War. Cartouches are crisp and clear. The bore is clean and bright, with good rifling. The action is strong.

Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.

Barrel is 22 inches in length.

Caliber: .52 rimfire
