Attractive Original Civil War Model 1860 Spencer 7 Shot Military Rifle
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a great 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 the nosecap intact as well as all three of the barrel bands. It has the sling swivel present and it still pivots. The frame of the gun still retains some traces of 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 brownish gray smooth tone and they have an attractive look all over. This one has matching serial numbers of 23,892. 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. The stock displays well as you can see in the pictures. The stock of the gun has both of the inspector cartouches 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. One of the stamps is that of "MMJ" that stands for Martin MacNary Johnson and the other is "DAP" for Dwight A. Perkins. A nice original 7-shot magazine tube is present in the shoulder stock of the gun. The tube is the version for the model 1865 that was made with the ribs on the cap. This is a great looking authentic Civil War Spencer rifle that displays quite well as you can see.
