Antique Spencer Civil War Model Saddle Ring Carbine

Trialed and Endorsed by President Abraham Lincoln

Here we present an antique Spencer Repeating Rifle Co. Civil War Carbine, made circa 1863 in Boston, Massachusetts. These lever operated, breech-loading rifles were marvels of the time and had an impact on how war was to be fought in the future. Though their service life in the U.S. military was relatively short, the Spencer story includes Christopher Spencer, the inventor of the rifle, demonstrating and shooting with President Abraham Lincoln, who gave his full endorsement of the piece. Supposedly, during the Battle at Gettysburg, a captured Rebel said one could “load in the morning and fire all day!” This was due to the Spencer’s most endearing quality: a 7 round magazine tube in the butt of the gun. This gave the shooter phenomenal firepower in a day when most soldiers were muzzle-loading single shots or even singly loading their breech-loading carbines.

This specimen is in very good condition. The markings on the metal surfaces remain crisp and clear, including the various sub-inspector markings that appear on many of the parts. The wood stock shows wear and handling, but remains stalwart. The inspector cartouche is still visible behind the saddle ring bar. The action is excellent. This is exactly what you want in a 150 year old veteran of the American Civil War.

Own the original! This is a legitimate antique and not a reproduction.

Barrel is 22 inches in length.

Caliber: .52 caliber rimfire (56-56 or No. 56)

Bore is in good condition. The firing mechanism is excellent.
