Here's a rare Spencer carbine that was converted to a rifle by the Springfield Armory in 1871. These rifles were built from the m1860 carbine. The alteration included removing the saddle bar, installing a new barrel chambered in .56-50, adding a new forend complete with a new cleaning rod, and a new rear sight. Only 1,108 of carbines were altered in this way.
The particular rifle is in good shape and is all original. The action of the breech block is smooth and functions correctly. The lock holds solid on both full and half cock.
The stocks are in good shape, and the butt stock has two major repairs near the butt plate. These repairs are very solid on will only effect the gun cosmetically.
The barrel is full length and the original sights are in good condition. The bore is rough with strong rifling but some areas of major pitting.
