WITH 1865 STABLER ALTERATION. Cal. 52, S# 12704. Standard configuration of the Civil War 1860 model, 20" 6 land and groove rifled barrel, adjustable rear sight, top of breech: "SPENCER REPEATING / RIFLE CO. BOSTON MASS / PAT'D MARCH 6, 1860". Carbine was altered so it could be shot by direct loading not using magazine in stock. The Stabler device uses a pivoting flange forward of trigger to activate. The only other external difference is the shape of the hammer nose. Later model 1865 Spencer carbines would have 22" barrels with three land and groove rifling. CONDITION: good to very good overall, metal is all cleaned and refinished with applied blue and brown color. Stocks refinished, sound and solid with no visible inspection marks. PROVENANCE: Lifelong collection of Robert "Mike" Bricker. (01-24949/JS). ANTIQUE. $800-1,200.
