Hi folks, I was going through the safe today, and found this old Spencer carbine. It belonged to my uncle, who bought it at auction in the 1930s. It's listed in the Springfield Research Service as having been issued to the Pennsylvania Volunteers in 1865, but I've been told that SRS records aren't accurate. It has Ainsworth inspection marks under the forearm, so I'm guessing it was probably retrofitted for the Indian wars.
Thanks for looking,
C

Wow. That is the most B/CC I have seen on a Spencer.
I can't imagine it hasn't been worked on, frankly. If my uncle had it "freshened up" in the '50s, it would be hard to tell in 2020. See my point? Thanks though!!
