SPENCER CARBINE AND RIFLE COMBINATION SCREWDRIVER SPRINGFIELD ARMORY POST CIVIL WAR MODIFICATION:  This Combination Screwdriver was manufactured at the Springfield Armory for issue with the Indian War era Spencer Carbines and Rifles, formed by modifying the Model 1863 Rifle Musket Tool.  As described on page 92, Gun Tools, Their History and Identification, Shaffer, Rutledge, and Dorsey, this tool is another example of the necessary post Civil War frugality forced upon the army.   

Incorporating the two different sizes of screwdrivers necessary to dismount and maintain this famous carbine, this specimen is in excellent condition, with a freely moving blade, and a nice finish.  SOLD
