Original Spencer prices
« on: March 21, 2005, 05:34:49 PM »
Greetings.
What's the collective experience in current asking prices for original Spencers?

Found this and for an 1865, it sounds a bit high.

Hi,

I'm looking around for an original Spencer too.  If you go to http://www.Gunsamerica.com or http://www.gunbroker.com  and at the search window just type in Spencer, you'll see quite a few Spencers at each web site with prices that  you can compare.

Another good place to check is www.antiqueguns.com. They show up in the "Other Lever Actions" and "Ciivil War Carbines and Henrys" sections.

About the cheapest you will find an original is $1500 in auction.  Usually the bores on those are rough.  A nice one can be found for $2200 to $3000.  The S&S block for centerfire is about $150, and works well.  Buffalo Arms has everything yo need to convert and shoot originals.
