The palmer patent carbine and on the top Of the uh breach It’s marked william palmer patented December 22nd 1863. so right in the middle of the war They’re trying to come up with these Designs of New and improved weapons and this was One of them They didn’t make it into service they Signed the contract to make them they Were made in windsor vermont by E.g lamson and you’ll hear that lambson Name because it’s the same Lamson l-a-m-s-o-n that Manufactured the lg and why muskets The ones that were patterned after the Colt rifle of 1861 special Model so they made these And on the lock plate you’ll have their Maker mark the windsor vermont location And behind the hammer you’ll have the 1865 production date They delivered these guns in June of 1865 so they were intended to be Used during the civil war They didn’t make it quite in time for The end of the war that ended in april So they’re a little bit after But they’re still considered a civil war Carbine because they were one of the Ones that were contracted There was only they estimate how many of Them made

They think there was one thousand and One so If you own this one there’s only a Thousand more to get and you’ve got them All But this one is beautiful look at the Case coloration on that lock And the case coloration is the toning That they did at the factory To make it’s uh it’s a process to make The finish stronger To make the gun last longer as far as Rusting Things like that it’s got a full length Barrel the barrel on these are 20 inches They fire that 50 caliber rim fire Cartridge Which was state of the art at that time And they load a neat way they’re breech Loading For a metallic cartridge you cut the Hammer back You turn this a quarter turn it slides Back And it’s opened up like that for loading And if you notice the hammer like this If on just one little bitty side is Designed to hit the rim of that Cartridge So it’s kind of a big hammer to do one Little strike but it was an important Strike But this one the action still works Smoothly
