He can tell you about the Burnside as well. And may have info on the Sharps.  The Buffalo gun guys may also help.

Drydock,

Why are you using Popeye as your avatar . . . I'm curious for a special reason.

BTW, who is the "he" in your post?

He is you.  And I'm a grouchy old retired sailor.  That's Poopdeck Pappy BTW.  Popeye's rapscallion father.

Clayton,

Your Spencer serial # is 56319.  Closest to your serial # is:

56331, a Spencer Carbine issued to Company E, 6th Indiana Volunteer Cavalry in July 1865;

also

56323, a Spencer Carbine  issued to Company D, 6th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry in 1865 (no day or month listed).

Best info I have.  Spencers were issued in no logical sequence of serial #s  . . . please read my Spencer Serial # Disclaimer on SSS.
