SPENCER 1865 56-50 U S CARBINE
$3650
Item ID #2119

Interesting carbine. Notice there are three cartouches instead of the normal two. One of the three is a from Springfield. I think it was added when this carbine went to Springfield to add the Stabler cutoff. Bore in the 20" barrel is shiny with good lands and grooves. There is also some pitting which is not an issue. It will rate a seven on a one to ten scale. Action is smooth and tight. It works perfectly. Nice blue remains on the barrel. Case color will still be found on the receiver. Wood to metal fit is excellent. Wood is in very nice original condition. There is a small crack on the left side to the front of the butt plate. No issue. Just want you to know. Tube is original. You will like this carbine. It will make a great addition to any collection.
