    M1865 Spencer .50 Caliber Rimfire Seven Shot Repeating Carbine, #18494. Markings of the Burnside Rifle Co. and Model 1865 on the receiver. All metal smooth and dark, mixing with scattered original blue, breech block retaining most of the original case colors. Fitted with Stabler cut-off, inspectors' initials on various parts. Mechanically perfect, perfect bore. Missing the butt swivel but the mounting plate is present, easily replaced. Really excellent wood with nice untouched patina, just some dents on the forestock at the band. Complete and original in every respect and an exceptionally nice untouched example of this desirable early Indian Wars U.S. carbine.
