The Joslyn carbine was a single shot rimfire carbine and was developed parallel with the Spencer, both employed the same .52 caliber copper “No. 56” cartridge. The Joslyn was loaded by pivoting the breech block on a hinge, secured by a latch with a spring pull tab on the 1864 model. There is a hole in top of the breech door that acts as an air vent. Standard features include an iron contoured butt plate (stamped with “US”), iron trigger guard, single iron barrel band with accompanying band spring, two leaf hinged sight, and a saddle bar and ring on left side. Manufactured by Joslyn Fire Arms Co., Stonington, Connecticut.

This particular carbine retains original blue and case colors.  All iron parts share a clean, smooth finish. The maker’s stamp on the lockplate reads: "JOSLYN FIRE ARMS CO. / STONINGTON CONN / 1864". Breech door and breech tang are marked with serial #14935. The breech door is also cleanly stamped, “B.F. JOSLYN’S PATENT / OCT 8 1861  JUNE 24 1862” under the firing pin. There are two sharp cartouches on left flat. Wood is good with a some wear and a few of the usual dings and scratches from age. Bore is bright with scattered pitting, with strong rifling. All mechanics are crisp and strong.

A very nice specimen of the Joslyn carbine. [jet]
