This is a good looking original Civil War weapon. It is an original and classic Civil War 7-shot Spencer cavalry carbine. This is the model 1860 which is the correct model for Civil War use and it was also converted for use after the war. It has all matching serial numbers of 54,703, which is within in the Civil War production since they started at 11,000 and went to 61,000 before the war ended. The barrel is full-length at 22 inches and it still has nice lands and grooves in the bore rifling. When they converted the gun to keep on using it in military service; they relined the bore to .52 caliber and added the stabilizer cut-off in front of the trigger (missing). The stabilizer was added to prevent the block from opening up unintentionally. They also tapered the front of the hammer to keep it from catching on things which caused misfires. It has the original front and rear sights present. The rear sight still has the slide present and it is movable. The top of the frame has a good bit of the Spencer markings and Boston, Massachusetts production location still visible. The action works well on all positions. The magazine tube that held the Spencer cartridges is still present in the back and is in nice shape. On the flat of the shoulderstock is has the cartouche stamps where the gun was approved for military service by the Government inspector. The original sling swivel base is still present on the underside of the stock but the swivel itself is missing in action. This is a very attractive looking complete Civil War Spencer 7-shot cavalry carbine that you can tell was used but not abused.
