:) Hey Rube  ;)

Listen Rube.  Ya gotta be some more careful about spreading them Accolade's on Mike Bracket at Goonsgunworks.  Swell his head much more an he won't be able to get thru his shop door  ;D  Whilst a tad unconventional, Mike's work is absolutely top drawer.

A point worth mentioning about the 1871/72 Open Top as manufactured by Uberti.  Unless Uberti had done something absolutely stupid, the Open Top is a Chameleon.  The Open Top is available in Three different cartridges.  .38Spl, 44 Spl, and 45 Colt.  Once the Arbor Fit has been corrected, and a nice Action Job completed, with just minor fitting, ALL THREE cartridges can be shot on a singe frame just by changing out the Cylinders and Barrels.  In the past, also available in ALL the popular barrel lengths and Taylor's also include a really neat SNUBBIE.

The Other Mike

That has already crossed my mind. I thought about doing a set of opentops as a set with swapable 44/45 cylinders.

   Why thank you esteemed "Builder of Burial Boxes" for the compliments  AND the new rattle in my head !!!
  A "multi caliber" setup on a "mono-frame is genius and gives me ideas that I figured were pretty well easily kept at bay, but thanks to you sir,  that thought is gaining space in my  "bwain"!!!!!
 
  Rube !  See what stuff like this starts  ?!!!!

Thanks Rube!!!!   I 'preciates  ya both !!!!!  Now, if I can just get my cute little "pug" nose past the door frame I think I can get in and get to work !!!!

You might just need to get one of them fancy large roll up doors to be able to walk in easily.  ;D

Thank you for a fine review and sharing the history of the gun itself.

No problem. Thanks for watching.

Spencer Shooting Society / Reproduction Spencers in .45
« Last post by Macon Due on May 19, 2024, 08:16:24 PM »
Howdy all
I have just been wondering how many of us have a reproduction Spencer in .45 Colt or .45 Schofield? Also.....if you do, are you having feeding problems? If you have read my latest post, you know I was about at my wits end with my Cimarron in .45 Colt. No matter what I did or how I worked the lever it was 85% reliable feeding at best. Then I came across Johnson Barr's post in reference to his .44 Russian feeding problems and how a good bullet mold restored his faith in his Spencer. I followed his footsteps and ordered a custom mold from Tom at Accurate Molds and my carbine is now 100% reliable. The difference is night & day. Just thought this might help someone else.

I am afraid that if I see a comparably good deal on an Evans, I will pick the conversation with the wife!  But if there are two of them, I might let you know about the second one.  If I can talk myself out of getting a "backup."    ;)  I'm pretty fond of the Evans platform although I've only ever held one in my hands.

Butterfly effect, I call it cow phart effect.  Interesting reading about it.

Out here in tornado alley you average about a half an hour warning on tornados.  50 years ago and more ago if them sirens were blowing, it was on the ground and someone was likely dieing.  Much better than being wrong about a little rain, or at least most of our opinions.
