MODEL 1860 SPENCER CARBINE

$3,450.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 218-512

Weapon bears serial #24529. Carbine has a 22” long round barrel that retains 60% to 70% of its original blue. It has the original folding rear sight and small brass blade front sight. Rear sight is complete with the sliding appture. Bore has very good rifling and is mostly clean with one area of dirt or possible pitting near the breech. Barrel is held to the forearm of the stock by a single barrel band that still retains much of its original blue.

Top flat of the receiver, forward of the hammer, is stamped with “SPENCER REPEATING / RIFLE CO. BOSTON MASS / PAT’D MARCH 6, 1860” in three lines. Stamping is readable. Receiver, triggerguard and hammer all show a uniform appearance with hints of original finish. Action works well.

Oiled walnut stock / forend is in good condition with normal dings, dents and light wear overall. Wood shows no signs of having been cleaned. Left side does not show any cartouche marks. Stock has no cracks.

The original, steel, tubular loading magazine located in the buttstock is in good, undented condition. Spring is strong and magazine fits in the shoulder stock well.

The carbine sling bar and ring are tightly attached to the stock’s left side. Screws are in good condition. Iron butt plate matches the rest of the metal on the weapon. Carbine retains its single sling swivel under the stock near the toe.

A very nice example of the Spencer carbine.  [ad]
