The Maynard Patent Carbines used during the Civil War were designed by Dr. Edward Maynard, a dentist, who was best known for his invention of a mechanical priming system used in several different rifles and carbines, one of the first being the U.S. Model 1855 rifle. Many older rifles were also modified to use this system. The Maynard Patent Carbines were made by the Massachusetts Arms Company. The first model was made with the Maynard priming system and were sold to the U.S. Army and Navy in .50 calibre, and were also used by the Internal Revenue Service. The second model, also known as the Model 1863, omitted the Maynard priming system to increase production rates, and were sold primarily to the U.S. Army in .50 calibre. About 20,202 were made, and were used by the 9th and 11th Indiana and the 11th Tennessee Cavalry Regiments, in addition to others. This is a 2nd Model carbine in excellent condition. The left side of the receiver is marked “EDWARD MAYNARD / PATENTEE / MAY 27. 1851. / DEC. 6. 1859.”. The right side of the receiver is marked “MANUFACTURED B Y / MASS. ARMS CO. / CHICOPEE FALLS.” The trigger guard tang is numbered “20394” & dated ‘1865’. The weapon has the correct steel under lever which also forms the trigger guard. The weapon's steel fittings include butt plate, saddle bar, ring, fixed foresight and flip up 2 leaf rear sight. The barrel and saddle bar have small ‘s’ factory inspector’s marks.
