Hi everyone, wanted to see if there was any way someone could trace this Spencer rifle I got in a lot? Here is the top serial number on it. I believe it to be an unaltered 1860.

Thanks!

Good looking Model 1860. It is not listed in the SRS which is not a complete works, so you can't read anything into it. Below is the serial # range of yours.

1884460C 64CO L 2ND MICH VOL CAV
1885060C 030164CO M 12TH ILL VOL CAV (ISSUED)
1887060C 030164CO M 12TH ILL VOL CAV (ISSUED)

I have several civil war firearms that I would love to be able to tie to a particular regi or company, etc! I am really anxious to find out how you went about identifying those particular serial numbers to the cavalry units. I would really appreciate any advice you could give me!

The OOP Springfield Research Service books. Vols. 2, 3 & 4 have Spencer SN data. Copies can be found from time to time on Ebay and elsewhere. Google the title and you will find much information. Some libraries also have sets. At one time online access was available but I know little about that.
