Hello! Horse Cavalryman here,   Been doin' that for a while.  Tried SASS back in the 80's and couldn't afford the ammo.  Spencers are really what brought U.S. Cavalry into the modern era. With some help from a yard of steel and the occasional belt gun.  I've ridden with
Spencer carbine on a sling and in the thimble. They weigh a ton and that's with blank ammo.  They work now just like then. The Johnny Rebs time their rushs to volleys from Sharps and don't take kindly to ya's emptying magazine in their last rush.
A "Gun Broke" horse will still start when you fire a carbine from the saddle.
My fantasy Spencer is only possible with Chiappa's centerfire action.
Have a good Ride!  I've earned my #4 slot (Horseholder)
Have A Good Ride!
