The Spencer Carbine hit the field in October 63, although there were some private purchase ones in the field prior. The first Spencer Rifles were ordered by the Navy in June of 1861 but the first real deliveries weren't until the Spring of 1863; again there were some private purchase ones out there prior to that.
