The Joslyn Model 1862 carbine was manufactured from 1862 to 1864; approximately 4,000 were produced. All were most likely purchased by the United States government for Civil War use. The brass mounted stock of the First Model differs from that of the Second Model, which is iron mounted. The tang of the buttplate is unmarked on the Model 1862, while it is stamped "U.S." on the 1864.
The Model 1862 has an exposed firing pin extension at the back of the breechblock. On the Model 1864 this extension is protected by a circular shield. Also, on the Model 1862 a hooked projection serves as a latch for opening the breech. On the Model 1864 the latch for the breechblock is a spring-loaded knurled knob.
Benjamin Joslyn was issued four patents covering this carbine action:
No. 33435, Oct. 8, 1861 - No. 35688, June 24, 1862
No. 39407, Aug. 4, 1863 - No. 42000, March 4, 1864.
