Very honest overall Spencer Civil War carbine in the 4xxxx range which dates it around early 1864. The action is crisp and the bore near fine. All markings crisp and clear. Nice unaltered weapons of this type are becoming difficult to locate….
Known Civil War Cavalry regiments who were issued the M1860 Spencer carbine were: 1st Connecticut Cavalry, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th Michigan Cavalry, 4th US Cavalry, 5th New York Cavalry, 1st New York Veteran Cavalry, 2nd Wisconsin Cavalry, 8th Indiana Cavalry, and the 1st New Jersey Cavalry.
