Identified Spencer Model 1860 Carbine (AL4454)

Identified Spencer Model 1860 Carbine

Serial# 51751, .52 Rimfire caliber, 22” six-groove barrel with a very good plus bore showing fine oxidation, pitting and good strong rifling the entire length. This is a nice honest unaltered Spencer that shows years of service and has a wonderful used look of a carried arm. The barre has soft brown and gray patina with traces of original blue along the protected edges of the forend, a couple patches of very fine oxidation and a couple tiny scratches at the rear sight. The action retains about 85% later blue turning to brown with scattered fine oxidation and worn edges, expected of an issued carbine. The case-hardened lock is a pleasing smoky gray with scattered fine oxidation still showing good traces of case colors on the top of the hammer and the front of the lock. The barrel band and hardware retain much blue with little wear and oxidation which is more prevalent on the buttplate. The markings on top of the action remain about 90% legible and the serial number completely legible on both the action and top of barrel. The walnut stock looks exactly as one would expect, well-worn with numerous light dings and marks, a 1” chip at the rear left of the forend and thin hairline age cracks at the toe of the stock.

Accompanying the carbine is a Springfield Research Service letter stating that this arm was used in Company “A”, 7th Indiana Volunteer Cavalry during the Civil War and by serial number issued to Sergeant Charles M. Gogan March 1st, 1864. Sgt. Gogan joined the 7th Cavalry on August 9, 1863, originally as a Trumpeter but was promoted to Sergeant on March 1, 1865. The 7th Indiana Vol. Calvary participated in various expeditions and skirmishes in Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas. While this is a well-worn carbine it has an appealing honest nature.
