Two Flints,
Just acquired a Taylor's 56-50 carbine last week here in Birmingham, so please sign me up to join your Spencer Shooting Society. We look forward to learning more about this gun and naturally using it in the field.

Howdy from Coulson City, Montana Territoty.

Don't own a Spencer yet, but hope to do so before next spring.

Thought I'd join the forum & learn from those who have experience, and hence wisdom, with Spencers.

Bought an Armi Sport in .45 Schofield from Taylors about two years ago. Have used it in several reenactments and have live fired a bunch of rounds. I would like to join.

I own a early Spencer (First of the Carbines received by the Govt in Oct. 63) and it was converted to 50 cal.  I shoot it all the time in N-SSA events.  I would love to see if I can find more information about this Spencer.  Is there any place I can have the s/n traced to see if I can be connected to any unit from either the Civil War or the Indian Wars.  I am also interested in know what the rest of you who shoot the 50 cal cartridge use to load your rounds?  I am thinking of working up a longer range cartridge that would reach out 100yd-200 yds (Maybe using Swiss Powder)..  Any suggestiong would be welcomed

New Guy here,
Have an old 56-56 that was used for blanks in the 70's. Would like to purchase some brass / bullets and try it for accuracy.
Any shooters want to sell a few brass and hanfull of bullets? Would like to try her before jumping in to far. Just figured out how
to get a 50-70 to shoot! Not a blackpowder guy,so this is new to me. Any help appreciated.

I've got two original Carbines - one tack-decorated, with a rawhide wrap at the wrist - both 56-50.

Vaya,

Signing in..

 Been a BP shooter for 19 years.  I'm a Rev war and WWII Re-enactor.... yeah I know.. no Spencers there.. but I always wanted one so last year I found a Taylor's 56-50 at a great price.. I haven't shot it yet with the high cost of ammo but I want to.  Any good alternatives to Ten-X and $90.00 a box??

Hello, the fire:

Just wanted to drop in and say howdy. I picked up my Taylor's Spencer in 56-50 last weekend and haven't even shot it yet, but I intend to remedy that as soon as possible. Happy holidays.

Larry reporting, (aka Cav Trooper). Served with 2nd ACR in Nurnberg, Germany 67/68, 71st AHC Americal ChuLai S. VietNam 69. Own an unmolested 1860 56-56 Spencer without the cutoff, bore not bad for an old boy, slugs to .535". I have converted to centerfire from S&S and have reloaded and shot 50 rds through it. I need help with reloading questions about the cases, Rapine healed bullets and Rapine hollow base bullets and crimping. I'm using FFg Goex at 35 and 40 gr. with home made SPG lube. This rifle is going to be fun as soon as I can work the bugs out of loading. Also looking for less expensive cases, I bought turned brass at $2.00 a pop, ouch! Any info and help would be much appreciated. I've read everything I could find and listened to everyone so far and need to sort it all out and get the skinny from fellers who shoot these beauties.

Thanks,

Cav Trooper

Figure I ought to join up. Although I don't own a Spencer (yet) I am about to become the official importer of Armi Sport rifles into the UK. You can bet I will direct any Spencer buyers to this site.

Howdy all;Thought it was time I joined. Just got my 56-50 Spencer from taylors. Cant believe I've had it for about two weeks & haven't fired it yet. Anyway the"fondle factor" is quite high on this rifle. I have long been facinated by the Spencer design and finally decided that at 68 years old my 45-70s were kicking me more than they used to.(how does that work?) So I sold one for the Spencer.
I got brass, dies & bullets from Buffalo Arms. Seems like a good outfit. Found out my Dillon won't work,so now I will have to see if I can snivel & whine enough to get back at least temporarily the other loading gear I gave away last year, knowing I wouldn't need it any more. Story of my life.
Anyway, glad to be on board. I look forward to swapping experiences with a very knowledgable bunch.
