Indian Wars Era Model 1865 Spencer Cavalry Carbine


This Spencer Calvary Carbine would have been used from the late Civil War Era to the Plains War Era and show wear consistent with its age and use. Manufactured for only one year, from 1865 to 1866, finding one of these guns is simply difficult to do. Marked with the serial number 221, this example is likely the 221st carbine off the production line, making it one of the earliest examples produced. The carbine has a .50 caliber tube-fed magazine that holds 7 shots and has the signature repeating feature. Despite the early production, it bears an engraving indicating that it was issued at the very end of the Civil War.
