    RARE, MINT BORE, American Civil War Era 1860-1869, Model 1865 Spencer .52 Obsolete Calibre Repeating Cavalry Carbine By Burnside Rifle Company With 7 Shot Tubular Magazine & Saddle Bar With Ring. Sn 16005 - 16005

    The Spencer .52 calibre repeating rifle was designed by Christopher Spencer in 1860. It was a manually operated lever-action, repeating carbine size rifle (37 ½” overall) fed from a tube magazine. It was adopted by the Union Army, especially by the Cavalry, during the American Civil War and were manufactured by The American Burnside Rifle Co. Production began in 1860 and ended in 1869. The Spencer had an innovative 7 shot tubular magazine fed into the butt via a trap with steel latch. This is an original example in excellent condition for its age. The metal work has even patina and its original wood stock has just the knocks, bumps and bruises to be expected. The 18” barrel’s bore is near mint, clean with crisp rifling. It is fitted with a flip up rear sight and fixed fore sight together with steel saddle bar with ring. It is also fitted with single sling swivel lug, correct steel butt plate & tubular magazine with latch plate. The top of the breech is stamped very faintly stamped ‘Spencer Repeating Rifle /Pat’d March 6 1860/ Manuf’d As Prov. R.I. Burnside Rifle Co Model 1865’. The frame is numbered ‘901A’ (illustrated). The loading and firing actions work perfectly. The price for this American Civil War era carbine includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre weapon no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as a part of a collection or display. Sn 16005
