Lindner Carbines and Rifles
A Collectors Guide to The Rarest Civil War Breech Loading Firearms
Edward A Hull
The various Civil War era firearms produced under the patents of Edward Lindner encompass some of the rarest of American breech loading arms. These include muzzle loading rifles and carbines converted to his breech loader design as well as altered Hall Patent rifles and new made carbines. There has been a scarcity of correct information about their history and use. This book provides collectors and arms historians with a more complete and correct historical record of the manufacture and issue to combat troops of both new made carbines as well as conversions of obsolete rifles and carbines to Lindner's breech loading system. Using countries included not only the U.S. but also Argentina, Brazil and France.
The book consists of 116 pages, 45 black & white illustrations and full color covers.
"...cast(s) far more light on Lindner's production than has ever been published before...this study will prove to be an indispensable reference and, therefore, it is highly recommended."
Herbert G. Houze, book review in MAN-AT-ARMS MAGAZINE; August, 2014.
"Ed Hull is a meticulous researcher with an amazing ability to ferret out long-forgotten documentation. His new work on the Lindner Carbines provides new and important information on these extremely scarce breech-loaders of the American Civil War."
Joe Poyer, author of THE AMERICAN KRAG RIFLE AND CARBINE and THE .45-70 SPRINGFIELD.
"...a valuable reference for students and collectors of American military shoulder arms, especially those who focus on the percussion breech loading arms used during the Civil War."
George D. Moller, author of the multi-volume AMERICAN MILITARY SHOULDER ARMS.
"...of great interest to the U.S. Military arms collector as well as those interested in the Civil War and the arms used to fight it."
Frank Graves, book review in ARMS HERITAGE MAGAZINE; June, 2014.
