Cool Stuff Frenchie!
the MI 5th and 6th Cavalry were issued Spencer Rifles. The 8th Cavalry was issued Spencer Carbines.....we just reenacted the hunting down of General Morgan and his raiders and unfortunately didn't have a ton of Spencer Carbines in the ranks (8th MI and 11th MI Cav both present).
One of our mounted reenactors has an original carbine......jams a lot but a neat weapon to have on a reenacting battlefield.
Horniste! Blas das Signal zum Angriffe!
