Taylor's & Company is proud to offer a recreation of a firearm first produced by Christopher Miner Spencer, one of the leading figures of themachine tool industry. When Spencer originally produced an 1860 model carbine , it was different from any other firearm. It was accurate, fired rapidly, had a long effective range, and held seven metallic cartridges that weren't affected by moisture. It could be fired more rapidly than a colt style revolver and reloaded in one-tenth the time. In 1865, the gunmaker delivered the Model 1865 Spencer Carbine, modified to correct flaws inherent in the 1860 design. Today the Model 1865 Spencer, in carbine and rifle, has been recreated by Taylor's & Company and Armi Chiappa. It features a case-hardened frame, blue barrel, and walnut stock.
