circa 1864, with 22in. barrel, pinched blade front-sight and a three leaf battle sight to 500 yards, stamped with the serial no. 12881 on the action top, on the lockplate 'JOSLYN FIRE-ARMS CO / STONINGTON CONN. / 1864', iron mounted walnut half-stock fitted with side-rib and ring on the left

Provenance: The Joslyn was originally produced as a percussion arm then redesigned in 1862 to accept the Spencer .56-52 rimfire cartridge and further improved in 1864 when a positive lock was added to the breech. Approx. 16,500 carbines of both models were produced. The Joslyn saw extensive issue and use during the Civil War and proved to be a reliable and effective weapon.
