This Volcanic Pistol-Carbine was manufactured by the New Haven Arms Company circa 1858 using components produced by the Volcanic Repeating Arms Company. The New Haven Arms Company did not manufacture pistol carbines as a regular production item. An unknown but very small number of unfinished Volcanic Repeating Arms Company pistol-carbines were finished and sold by the New Haven Arms Company following the reorganization of the company by Oliver Winchester in May 1857. This pistol-carbine has a 16 1/2 inch octagon barrel with integral 20-shot magazine, brass receiver and cocking lever with round finger hole. The back strap has a single hole to accept a detachable shoulder stock lug and a small alignment pin. The serial number "308" is stamped on the right side of the loading lever, the left side of the frame underneath the grip, and on the inside of both grips. Includes reproduction attachable shoulder stock.
