    RARE, American Civil War Era Spencer Repeating Rifle Company 1860 Patent, .52 Obsolete Calibre Repeating Rifle With 7 Shot Tubular Magazine. Sn 17354 - 17354

    The Spencer .52 calibre repeating rifle was designed by Christopher Spencer in 1860. It was a manually operated lever-action, repeating rifle fed from a tube magazine. It was adopted by the Union Army during the American Civil War. The Spencer had an innovative tubular magazine fed into the butt via a trap with steel latch. This is a rare, original example of Spencer’s 1860 patent in excellent condition. The metal work has original finish & even patina and its original wood stock has just light bumps and bruises to be expected. The 28 ¼” barrel’s bore is clean with crisp rifling. The action tang is numbered '28758'. The rifle measures 47” overall length. It is fitted with a flip up rear sight and block with blade fore sight. It is also fitted with rear sling swivel and forward sling ring lug, correct steel butt plate & tubular magazine with latch plate. The top of the breech is stamped ‘Spencer Repeating Rifle Co Boston Mass Pat’d March 6 1860’. The loading and firing actions work as they should. The price for this collectable, rare, historic rifle 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 17354
