Rare BURNSIDE-SPENCER Rifle Convert by SPRINGFIELD
Indian Wars Era Alternative to the Trapdoor!
Here we present an antique Burnside Contract Spencer Model 1865 Cavalry Saddle Ring Carbine featuring the rare conversion to a rifle by Springfield Armory. This military long arm was made circa 1865 by contract by the Burnside Rifle Company in Providence, Rhode Island before it was re-armored by Springfield for issuance to infantry. Only about 1,108 received this treatment. This would have been an upgrade for a grunt lugging around the Trapdoor rifles of the time that were powerful, but only single shot, whereas the Spencer still packed plenty of punch but with 7 in the rear-feed magazine tube.
The overall condition is very good. The metal surfaces have a mixed patina. The markings are legible. The stock is in great shape, showing signs of use and remaining solid and smooth overall. The bore is clear with visible rifling. The action is strong.
