Hello folks. I'm a new member and have been pleasantly surprised at all the information on this site. It's great. I actually was joining for a more specific purpose. I have a Spencer carbine that's been in my family for years. I recently pulled it out of the closet and have become interested in it's history. I'm 73 and anyone who knew anything about it is long gone. It came down from my grandfather. Anyhow it's serial #13286 which I believe is early in the initial production run. I would love to find out what regiment it might have been issued to. There are initials on the stock that may have been put there by the soldier. It certainly appears that way. Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. I understand there are a couple of out of print books that might help that I'm going to try to find in the library. I'm also considering having someone refurbish it as the hammer is missing, the barrel is pretty rusty and the forestock has been chewed on by a critter or so it seems.
