Spencer Shooting Society / Re: Chiappa Spencer quality control

Three months ago I was in a large local gun shop. I asked if they had a Chiappa spencer. He pointed to one hanging on the wall behind the counter. I’d missed it. He said it was new but had been hanging there for like 6 years. He said they’d sold a few and had them come back for repairs so they’d not put this one out to sell. It had been relegated to a wall hanging decoration. It still had the 2018 price of $1800. I told him to give me a deal and I’d buy it and never bring it back for repairs if there were issues. He gave me a handful of snap caps to try there in the store. They would not recycle reliably. That was good for me because he sold me the rifle for $1200 or so. I brought it home, read a lot here and loaded up a bunch of ammo. I used 255 grain hard cast Keith bullets from Missouri bullet co in my loads. Got them loaded at exactly 1.6 inches and started shooting. Trigger measured at 6lbs right out of the box. The first 100 rounds I had quite a few feed issues. I just kept shooting and learning how to manhandle the lever. Now that I have about 500 rounds through it it’s as smooth as glass. Took at least 150 rounds to get it to this point. The only issue I had was feeding the very last round from the magazine. I clipped a couple rings off the spring and that cured that issue.

More sore this morning, the locals that are long lasting they did at the sites has worn off.  Rita still has a fever and will stay another night.  I have to run her teeth and charging cords out because she didn't take them.

Dear always think they might and take stuff in case they do. ::)

Yep.  Open Tops be a mite fickle.  Understand, they will shoot well with almost anything you feed 'em.  However, if you're after little itty bitty groups, you'll have to play around with load/bullet combinations to find what the gun likes best.

I have a much more simplistic approach these days.  I simply load APP 3f to the bullet base.  Any bullet.  Although my preference for a .38 runs to the 125Gr Truncated Cone.  Very Accurate.  For the .44 I like a 160Gr RNFP, also quite accurate.  The .45 gets Tricky.  I really like Cowboy 45 Special cases with 130Gr Barnstormer bullets in .45 Colt chambers.  In my conversions, I am running 45 ACP cylinders, with 45 ACP cases (natch) and Barnstormer bullets.  Both of which are very accurate.  They shoot better than I do.
