Here is an early serial number, very heavy, Spencer 1865 carbine rifle re-barreled with a 26? .50 octagon barrel. The Spencer stamp has been machined off. I think this is so the octagon barrel would run flush with the receiver. The cleaning rod is not original and the mag tube locking nib needs to be replaced.
I?ve never fire this rifle. In fact I know very little about Spencer's. If you have any questions please ask. Or, maybe you can tell me something about this historic rifle.
