Just received my 56-50 Armi yestrerday.  Must be lucky, as trigger is not too heavy (not exactly light but ok) and action works smoothly.  (Dealer description of used gun lacking in many details, I suggest you be careful buying anything from Denver Gun Room as they simply do not care for the truth).  A through cleaning of the action and barrel will improve the gun greatly.  Looks great alongside the 59 Sharps Conversion and a Trapdoor carbine.  Looking forward to loading ammo and shooting this beauty.

I would like to join the Spencer Society.  I just bought a Taylor Arms in 56.  I also would like to get the specific data on OAL for the 56 as I heard that it is OAL quirky.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi There,
  Thanks for the welcome. My name is Charles Misulia. I am from Lumpkin, GA and have been reading the forum now for a while. I just traded some CW weapons for a new Armi Sport Spencer Rifle that should be delivered in a couple of days. I got the 44-40 because the ammo is easy to come by and the blanks cheap to make (w/410 shells).
  Anyway, my fascination with the Spencer started a few years ago when I began writing a book about the Battle for Columbus, Georgia which was fought at the end of the Civil War between the forces of James H. Wilson's Cavalry Corps, Military Division of the Mississippi and the Georgia and Alabama (CS) Reserve Forces. The use of Spencers played a major part in the Union victory at Columbus.
  Thanks for the welcome.

Knightmare reporting for duty!

     Been fascinated with Spencers for a little over 30 years. Have a relative who was in Wilder's Hatchet/Lightning Brigade (B Co, 123rd Illinois Volunteer Infatry). Always been a lifelong dream to own/shoot one, and only recently found out that reproductions are available. Don't know how much time I've got left but I hear the clock ticking -now more than ever. Found the 'Society' 3 days ago and joined 2 days ago!
      Was a paratrooper for my 'Uncle' many moons ago and take the correlation between 'mounted infantry' and 'Airborne' to heart. Thanks to all of you for your expertise and for just being here.

Reporting aboard.

Finally I have a rifle, and even if it's not a Navy rifle and it's a repro, hopefully it will shoot groups and scores.

I'm interested in joining the Society. After my grandparents passed away, we were cleaning the attic. (What we called the 'old chamber' of the farm house) and discovered a Spencer Carbine. Don't know much about it, but would like to find out anything and everything about it. It has a serial number of 40532 and the following;
- Spencer Repeating-
Rifle Company Boston     S.

Knowing the family it may have been a reproduction but the chance is there it is real. I included the S. because it is stamped five spaces after the word Boston. There is also a "&" at the top of the chamber. If nothing else I hope to clean it up and get to shoot it. Looks OK, but if it's to old and to far gone, it'll just become a wall hanger. I'm happy to have found your site.

Hello SSS,

I have been a Civil War reenactor for about 20 years or so. I purchased a Taylors '65 rifle in 56-50 for my late war infantry impression. I have always been fascinated with the Spencer rifle and now that I have owned one, it has grown even more. I love this rifle!

I am really hoping to start doing some loading and live firing with it in the very near future.

Hi, Troops,

I am a  gun freak that loves shooting the old ones. I can't afford collector quality arms so I pick up non-shooters at gun shows and refurbish/repair/rebuild them as I find the parts. I've been lurking in the bushes waiting for my S&S center fire breech block for my 1865 to arrive before I signed up----It arrived today, so sign me up. It looks like I  have one of the 5% that will probably need extensive fitting. They didn't send any instructions so I'll have to call them in the morning. My Spencer (s/n 19324) has been "cowboy customized".  The original rear sight has been removed, a flat filed  and a home made one with elevator dovetailed to barrel. The steel front sight blade has been replaced with a filed down 1800's dime).  I was really surprised that the  sights work so well.  The silver blade really shows up good for these seventy-one year old eyes!! Other than the sights, my old Spencer is original, in excellent shape and IS A SHOOTER! I'll be picking you expert's brains on reloading, etc., later.  I'm an "old guy" but like a kid when it comes to old guns, damascus knives and classic cars. I love to throw big chunks of lead down range in a cloud of white smoke and do so all year long here in the Nevada high desert. I hunt chukar with a Grade IV Damascus L.C. Smith 10 gauge and mule deer with my 45-90 86 Winchester (1889).  Getting long winded so I'd better close.  Talk to you later.
