|Event:||Study Spencer Repeating Rifles!|
|Date:||August 24th, 2018.|
|Time:||10:00 AM to 11:00 AM|
|Location:||Windsor Historical Society|
At this session, Carr will compare Windsor Historical Society’s 1860 Spencer carbine with his own 1865 Spencer sporting rifle which is in 56.46 caliber. He will discuss the evolution of the Spencer carbine from rim fire to center fire in the 1865 though 1885 period when Christopher Spencer was experimenting with new rifle designs in an ultimately futile attempt to remain in business. Carr will show Spencer’s technological advances using two inert cartridges to illustrate both the .50 caliber carbine and the .46 caliber sporting version.
