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.

The Spencer repeating rifle was a manually operated lever-action, repeating rifle fed from a tube magazine with cartridges. It was adopted by the Union army, especially by the cavalry, during the American Civil War, but did not really replace the standard issue muzzle-loading rifled muskets in use at the time. The Spencer carbine was a shorter and lighter version of the Spencer repeating rifle.
