Neat Looking Original Civil War Model 1860 Spencer 7 Shot Military Rifle
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a cool looking original Civil War Spencer rifle. These rifles are much more scarce that the standard Spencer carbine. It is easy to tell them apart because the rifle has the longer barrel and forestock and the rifle has three barrel bands where the carbine has only two. This one has the full-length 30 inch barrel with the original front and rear sights intact. The forestock has has the nosecap and rear barrel band removed. You can see that the wood was trimmed down long ago. You can also see the wear between the back band and the frame. This is for LOTS of use. It has the rear sling swivel present and it still pivots. The frame of the gun still retains the Spencer Repeating Rifle Company maker's mark and Boston production location as well as the 1860 patent date. As you can see all of the metal parts have a pleasing brown tone and they have an attractive look all over. This one has matching serial numbers of 22,783. This serial number is inside the Civil War range of the production of the Spencer rifle. The action works crisply on all positions. It still has clear lands and grooves of the rifling in the barrel with pitting. The stock displays well as you can see in the pictures. The stock of the gun has the inspector cartouche still visible on the back side. This is where the gun was approved for military service. They let us know it is a military model rather than a civilian gun. A nice original 7-shot magazine tube is present in the shoulder stock of the gun. The tube is the correct model 1860 version that was made without the ribs on the cap. The stock has had the tacks added near the buttplate but in my opinion they aren't as old as the gun. This is a great looking authentic Civil War Spencer rifle that displays quite well as you can see.
