American Mexican War & Civil War Eras, .54 Calibre M1842 US Aston Percussion Cavalry & Navy Pistol With Captive Ram Rod, Brass Fittings & Cudgel Butt. A 612 - A 612
In the early 1840s, Henry Aston, Ira N. Johnson and a number of associates set up a factory in Middlefield, Connecticut, to complete a government contract for martial pistols of the 1842 pattern. The smoothbore Aston/Johnson used the same 54-calibre ball as the new Mississippi Rifle from the Eli Whitney Jr. factory. While it was strongly associated with the cavalry of the day, the 1842 was actually a general service pistol along the lines of the British and French percussion handguns adopted the same year and many examples bear naval markings. Some 34,000 pistols saw production by 1850 and, upon completion of the contract, Johnson continued making the pistols under his own name. He filled an order for an additional 10,000 between 1853 and 1855. The Palmetto Armory added 1,000 units to the total. The Aston/Johnson pistols, in their most familiar role, replaced very similar flintlocks in the saddle holsters of mounted troops. They saw considerable use on the Oregon Trail and in the United States/Mexican war of 1847-48. Issued in pairs, they afforded the Dragoons a couple of extra shots after they discharged their muskets and closed with an enemy. The 1842 is a sturdy pistol with reinforcing brass mounting and a substantial “ball” capping the butt to serve as a cudgel. Our example is in excellent condition. There are no manufacturer or date marks externally visible on our example but all metal and wood is original with even patina. The pistol has the correct brass fittings including, small blade fore sight, cudgel butt, heavy military hammer and captive steel ram rod. It is 14 ½” overall length with an 8 ¼” steel smooth bore barrel. The bore has staining and residue consistent with age and use. The action functions as it should.

Very Rare, American Civil War, .50 Bore Warner 1864 Patent Breech Loading Cavalry Carbine By Greene Rifle Works With Unique Slide Extractor Feature, Saddle Bar & Ring. Sn 15250 - 15250
The Warner Carbine is a fine example of the many styles of innovative, breech loading, metallic cartridge arms that were procured in relatively small numbers by the US Ordnance Department during the American Civil War. The Warner Carbine was the brainchild of James Warner of Springfield, MA. Warner had a long history of employment in the firearms industry, and had at one time worked at Eli Whitney’s factory in Whitneyville, Connecticut, where he was involved with the production of the Walker pattern Colt revolvers that Whitney produced for Colt. He subsequently went to work for the newly formed Springfield Arms Manufacturing Company of Springfield, MA. Warner served as factory superintendent and sale agent for the company and contributed his designs in the form of several percussion revolving rifles. Springfield Arms Company also produced several models of percussion revolvers in a variety of calibres, some with manually revolved cylinders and some with self-rotating, single action lock mechanisms. In 1864 Warner received two patents related to his newly designed carbine; around Christmas 1864 they were initially issued to the 1st Wisconsin Cavalry and 3rd Massachusetts Cavalry for use in the Civil War. The carbine was a single shot, breech loading, metallic cartridge carbine. This scarce American Civil War Warner Carbine was manufactured by the Greene Rifle Works Worcester Mass USA. The carbine has a pinched blade front sight and a single leaf rear sight. The left side of the barrel and breech have proofs. The left side of the frame has a saddle bar and is marked "GREENE RIFLE WORKS WORCESTER, MASS.PAT'D. 1864". The serial number '11178' is located on the inside of the receiver. It's unique manual slide extractor is located on the underside of the fore stock and functions as it should. The weapon's brass frame and butt plate together with hinged breech block opened by operation of a knurled sliding thumb catch are all excellent and undamaged. It's loading & firing action work (the original main spring is now weak as is common with weapons of this age but operates correctly). It has a 20" round barrel (37" overall). The bore is clean with crisp rifling. The weapon's wood stock with chequered panels is excellent with just the bumps & bruises to be expected of a weapon of this age.
