MODEL 1865 SPENCER CARBINE WITH THE STABLER CUTOFF

$1,550.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 946-28

Model 1865 Spencer Repeating carbine in nice untouched condition. These were produced between 1865 and 1866 by the Spencer Repeating Rifle Company of Boston, Mass. The Model 1865 carbine employed the Stabler cut-off’ device which allowed the carbine to be fired as a single shot weapon if desired. Two other differences from the Model 1860 carbine vs the Model 1865 were its beveled hammer nose and the rounded receiver top surface.

Barrel is 20” long and has the standard front sight and its original rear sight which is missing its sliding appture. The barrel exhibits a smooth blue coloring that is worn light in some places. “M1865” is clearly stamped between the rear sight and the breech. Bore has good rifling and only light dirt. Should clean up.

A pleasing mottled gray colored patina rests on the frame and receiver while stamped top of the frame has a readable maker’s mark of “SPENCER REPEATING / RIFLE CO.  BOSTON, MASS. / PAT’D MARCH 6, 1860.” Action works well. Hammer holds at half and full-cock and falls when trigger is squeezed. Hammer has a darker surface finish compared to the lock. Magazine tube in the butt also seats and unseats properly.

Carbine has a two piece walnut stock in good condition showing the normal dings, dents and scratches from wear and use. There are no cracks. Stock also features two faint government cartouche. Original fore-end is tight and strong and exhibits normal wear. Left side of wrist has saddle bar and iron ring.

Serial # 10539 is at the rear of the frame near the hammer. Lock screws are original with no buggering. Iron butt plate is tight and wears a mottled dark plum / gray coloring.   [ad]
