$2,795.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: G3826

Weapon bears serial #54699. It has a 22” long round barrel that is turning a plumb brown. There are some hints of blue around the muzzle and scattered light pitting over its surface giving it a speckled appearance. The original rear sight has the flip-up leaf with sliding appture and a brass blade front sight. Bore has faint rifling and light surface dirt. Barrel is held to the forearm of the stock by a single barrel band that still retains some 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 slightly worn but is readable. Receiver, triggerguard, lock and hammer all show a uniform mottled appearance. Action works well.

Oiled walnut stock / forend is in nice condition with a few of the normal dings, dents and light scratches consistent with age. Wood shows no signs of having been cleaned. Left side does not show any cartouche marks. Stock has a thin closed hairline crack running horizontally for about 8.00 inches from the buttplate toward the wrist.

The original, steel, tube magazine located in the buttstock is in good, undented condition. Spring is good and magazine fits the stock well.

The carbine sling bar and ring are tightly attached to the stock’s left side. Screws slightly worn. Iron butt plate is dark with some surface rust near top. Carbine retains its single sling swivel under the stock near the toe.  [ad]
