Hi, Mete,

Someone once said that the US is a nation of inventors, and the coincidence of advancements in weapons technology with the US Civil War produced literally hundreds of inventions in the firearms field.

I think the man you refer to is Andrew F. Lustyik, who literally wrote the book on Civil War carbines. AFAIK, he is still with us, though he is about my age and long retired from the New York State Police. There is not much info on him on line (be careful - there is another man with a different middle initial who seems to have a somewhat shady record!) but you can look him up.
