Here's a handsome looking model 1860 Spencer carbine. The metal has a great, light patina with no rust or pitting. The stocks are in excellent shape with only minor handling marks and no major chips or splits.
The magazine tube is original and in good condition and can be removed from the butt stock easily. The spring is present and functional. The lock is in excellent condition with a wonderfully smooth action which holds solid on both full and half cock. The action of the breech block is smooth and positive with all parts present and accounted for with no rust, pitting or damage.
The bore is good with strong rifling and some light frosting in some areas. Externally, the barrel has a great patina with no rust or pitting. Both sights are intact and in great shape.
Included with this rifle is a sling that appears to be original.
This is a great example of America's first repeater priced modestly to be attractive to any collector.
