That is an interesting comment. I have reloaded both a .56-50 and a .56-52 original cartridge. I tried to fire each in this rifle, but nether would go off. The Spencer firing pin is blunt and only catches the very outer edge of the rim. I tried each a couple times. You can see in the photo that the rim was hit hard and well mashed. I then put each cartridge in my Remington split breech carbine and they fired on the first attempt both times. The Remington has a more pointed firing pin which hits a little more inward. It seems maybe Remington took a lesson from the Spencer and designed their firing pin for improved reliability.

That's a fine item. I like it a lot. I never knew they existed. There must have been a rack or box they slipped down into in the armory. thanks for posting this.

This is sort of off topic, but I've been interested in your efforts to reload original rimfire cartridges.  I know the guy who did at least some of the testing on cartridge cases and bullets found at the Little Bighorn battlefield to see if they could be matched to specific rifles.  I think he said about one out of five Henry or Spencer cartridges would go off.  It made the testing somewhat more difficult than what he was used to.

Went to a gun show today and left with a 63 pocket Remington brass frame. Only 120$, first ever Remington style revolver I've owned, it's missing a pin for the loading lever, but I'll find something.

Very cool.  I saw it in the Barracks and it may be on my todo list for cap and ball pistols.
