A Revolution in Arms: A History of the First Repeating Rifles

www.pinterest.com/1895gunner/ Spencer repeating rifles were designed in 1860 and saw some civil war action. The smaller carbine as we see in this illustration, was a popular gun in the early west. The original design was completed by Christopher Spencer in 1860, and was for a magazine-fed, lever-operated rifle chambered for the .56-56 Spencer rimfire cartridge. The pictured carbine was shorter and used a 56-50 caliber copper cased rimfire cartridge that was usually headstamped.
