Have any one here on the forum had experience shooting one of the Belgium Spencer's? I've read many are Center fire.

I would be interested to know as well.  They are patterned after a NM are they not?

I actually handled a Belgium Spencer many years ago.  For the life of me, I do not recall whether it was rimfire or centerfire.

I had assumed when I posted about the Belgium Spencer's there would be a number in the collections of forum members.  Looks like they might not be that common after all.

Thanks, Herbert:

While we're at it, did Brazil produce 56-50 rimfire ammunition, and if so with what markings and until what year?

I recall Navy Arms importing current production Brazilian 41 rimfire rounds for the Remington O-under derringer in the 1980's.

Want to recall seeing an old "Brazilian" 56-50 round on an artifact website a while back. 

Many thanks,

My curiosity is increasing so I will keep an eye out for one at the Tulsa show next weekend. It is a good place to see the history of firearms even if you do not buy.
