Saskatoon calling: Tracing the history of Spencer repeating carbine #23029

<< < (2/2)

Specific serial number records for Canadian military longarms are extremely sparse, and I am unaware of any for the Spencers.

Another interesting tidbit from Edgecombe: although 100 Spencer carbines were shipped to Fort Garry, only 93 were received ... seven of them apparently having been stolen en route!

He also references a record that, as of 1 April 1874, Fort Garry Stores still held all 250 Peabody rifles, but only one Spencer carbine.
