What's with all the Spencer serial #s?  Do you buy them all?  Are you doing this for friends? I'm gonna have to charge you big bucks in the future Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes for serial # information Grin Grin Grin

You asked about Spencer Rifle serial # 3004 - All I can tell you is the following, so you have to decide which unit works for your serial # request Huh Huh Huh

My SRS Books show the following:

Spencer Rifle  serial #3017 - issued to Company B, 9th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry on January 1, 1865  or
Spencer Rifle  serial #2994 & serial # 3018 - issued to the 6th Independent Company, Ohio Volunteer Sharpshooters in 1863 (no day or month shown)

Hope this helps (only kidding on the above comments)

I offer this then Butt out....

You are talking SAA's   Undecided....   my Pietta "Hartford Model" is a 61 transformed , no markings remain.

As it looked out of the Box "Hartford Model"  both on the Barrel address line and on said box...It was brand new in box date coded 2013.

Markings went with the excised 4"

I like your .44 Rodeo!  I tried to order a nickel version of the same gun but got the royal run-around from USFA at the time. First they didn't have any .44 caliber barrels, then they discontinued the flat nickel plating process. This on top of charging me an extra $100 "special order" cost because they only offered the guns in .38 Special and .45. Anyhow, after a while I was able to order a dome blued, 4 3/4" Single Action in .44 Special but with the barrel marked "RUSSIAN AND S & W SPECIAL 44" like the old Colts. Including the special order charge my cost was $775 from the factory plus local California sales taxes and background check costs bringing the total to $872.81. In retrospect not bad for a one-of-a-kind original. That was in 2011. I've since acquired a Cimarron Bisley 4 3/4" .44 and a 7 1/2" Colt New Frontier SAA, also .44 Special. I'd send pics but I'm trying to change over from photobucket to imgur and I'm confused...

Beautiful work, Skeet. Looks really fine.  Cool

Another fun vid, Santee. Thanks for the link. Nice little holster for that Iver-Johnson.

Trim your brass. Bernie's crimps work very well if your brass is trimmed to work with them. I load .38 Long Colt heeled bullets from his molds with his heeled bullet crimper. OAL works out that Starline .38 LC brass needs to be trimmed down. Your pic shows exactly that problem. Trim your brass down to length so the crimp lays right.

That looks really good. It works nicely with that rig, too. Good work.

It's such a shame that Armi San Marco went Darwin.

ASM Built SA reproductions were the closest thing to a Colt on the planet.  Then their QC went in the Toilette and shortly after, they went the same.

Today, in the reproduction world, the closest reproduction to a Colt is the Pietta Great Western II.  In my sordid past, I used Pietta parts to repair and return ASM guns to service.  

Most of all, I miss the ASM built 1st Model Richards reproduction.  Basically built on an 1861 but who cared!!!  The guns were really nice.
Except it took 7 or 8 of em to get two that worked reliably (sigh).

PS:  Willi was asking another while I was typing the above ... so ...

It's a Crap Shoot.  I don't personally know anyone who kept track of the variations in the markings between the makers of a specific model.  I know when I was still in business, I didn't have the time to study the marks.  Finding what fit what was interesting as well.  Some hammers, some barrels, ejector assemblies, cylinders, triggers will interchange, albeit with some fitting perhaps required.  Almost NONE of the Grip/Griopframe screws interchange.  I once built a set of guns for a friend from two boxes of odd parts he had.  Turned out to be ASM BP Frames, Uberti Barrels, ASM Ejectors, Pietta cylinders, Pietta hammers, Pietta triggers and lock parts, ASM Trigger guards with Pietta back straps.  I custom made the stocks..  The answer to what have you got??  My best guess is an ASM Frame.  After that ..... anybodies guess.
