Designed in 1889 and manufactured in 1890 the Hemstreet Carbine is a .45-70 Govt. Carbine that was mainly used for buffalo hunting and train robberies in the Wild West. It's biggest complaint was its lever. It was total shit. It was popular and a major contender to the Winchester 1894 repeater, but in 1895 Hemstreet Firearms Co. founder James Hemstreet died in a saloon in Tuscon, Arizona during a bar fight. Then a month later Hemstreet Firearms Co. went bankrupt until 1905.
