Indian Wars BURNSIDE Contract SPENCER 1865 Carbine

Antique Saddle Ring Cavalry Carbine

Here we present an antique Burnside Contract Spencer Model 1865 Carbine, made circa 1865 by contract by the Burnside Rifle Company in Providence, Rhode Island. The Spencer was a very successful carbine that was desirable on Civil War battlefields due to its handy size, accuracy, and rate of fire. The magazine tube in the butt holds 7 shots and a captured Confederate soldier is quoted as saying that you “load in the morning and fire all day!” The inventor, Christian Spencer, had the unique opportunity to personally instruct President Abraham Lincoln as he test-fired the rifle, resulting in more military sales.

This specimen is one of the Burnside Contract, making it scarcer than those made by the Spencer Repeating Rifle Company. Out of the 34,000 made by Burnside, over 30,000 were purchased by the U.S. government. The top of the frame is marked “SPENCER REPEATING RIFLE/PAT’D MARCH 6, 1860/MANUF’D AT PROV. R.I./BY BURNSIDE RIFLE CO.” and “Model 1865”. This one is equipped with the magazine cutoff feature that allowed the user to single load or open up the magazine tube for more rapid fire.

The overall condition is good. The steel surfaces are weathered and gray. The markings are legible. The walnut stock is worn and dark. The bore is in good shape, dark with strong rifling. The action is excellent. Here is a Burnside Spencer cavalry carbine that would have been in service throughout the Indian Wars!

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

Barrel is 20 inches.

Caliber: .50 Spencer
