Fixed blade front sight and folding rear sight graduated to 900 yards. The top of the barrel at the breech is marked "M/1865" and the top of the receiver is marked "SPENCER REPEATING/RIFLE Co. BOSTON, MASS/PAT'd MARCH 6 1860". The matching serial number is marked behind the hammer and on the bottom of the barrel under the forearm. The bottom of the barrel under the forearm is also marked with a "W" and "P". The left rear of the barrel is marked "W". Most parts are marked with a single letter inspection mark. Saddle ring and bar mounted on the left wrist and mounted with a smooth forearm and straight grip stock with a sling swivel. Although most Model 1865 Spencer carbines were delivered too late for use in the Civil War, they were used extensively by cavalry regiments on the frontier until replaced by the U.S. Model 1873 Springfield Carbine. Complete with two sealed unmarked plain tan boxes of cartridges.
