 :'(Hello SSS,

I'm going to try to maintain a SPENCER OFTEN REQUESTED INFORMATION (SORI) Thread  that contains a List of Topics/Links that hopefully will get you to the specific Spencer information you are looking for quicker and easier than having to go back over the many pages of SSS Archives. 

The first topic on the list will be Loading Information; followed by Parts, Modifications and Repairs; Spencer Accessories; and the Spencer Shotgun.  I'll add other topics as time permits.  By the way, if you find a topic or thread on SSS and would like me to add it to this ORI Thread, just let me know by PM or Email   fsgrand2@fairpoint.net and I'll add it on.
