The Joslyn carbine was a single shot rim fire carbine and was developed parallel with the Spencer, both employed the same .52 caliber metal cartridge. The Joslyn was loaded by pivoting the breech block on a hinge, secured by a friction latch with a spring pull tab on the 1864 model, hole in top of the breech door is an air vent. Standard features include an iron contoured butt plate, iron trigger guard, single iron barrel band, two leaf hinged sight, saddle bar and ring on left side. Manufactured by Joslyn Fire Arms Co., Stonington, Connecticut.

On this carbine all iron has a dark patina. The maker’s stamp on the lackplate reads: "JOSLYN FIRE ARMS CO. / STONINGTON / CONN". Breech door appears to be replacement and is serial # 75, while the breech tang is marked with serial # 4278. There are no cartouches or inspector marks. Wood is good with usual dings and scratches from age. There is a "US" stamped on the buttplate. Bore is clean with good rifling. A very nice specimen of the Joslyn carbine. [jet]
