Civil War Carbine Found By Metal Detecting Diver

Imagine finding a Civil War carbine underwater…

What is the coolest item you have ever found? Well, this treasure hunter just discovered a complete Civil War Calvary Carbine.

You can actually feel the excitement of this epic discovery.

This guy has the best luck at finding guns lost or tossed into the river waters. This trip was no different than his other historical finds. It is a complete Civil War Cavalry Spencer Carbine.

Sadly, this incredible firearm has taken a beating after the many decades in the deep abyss. It is, however, a cool piece of history that would look great over the fireplace mantle.

With the right equipment and some choice spots to metal detect, maybe you can make such a discovery. You never know until you try.
