Hi Glenn,

Welcome to SSS.  Thanks for joining!!

If you get a chance would you please do a NEW TOPIC post on your Burnside and what is involved in doing a conversion block for it.  If it's your second time, you must know your stuff, and I and others would be very interested in how you do/did the conversion.

Again, thanks for joining.

Hell-Er High Water signing up with my Taylor's 56-50.  I have been shooting it for a year now and it is a shooter, with both black and smokless.  If anybody needs loading info get in touch.

Thought I had already signed up, but it must have been the morning after the night before.  Coming in with my original .56-50 that I shoot in N-SSA.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for joining!  I did a double check on the membership list, but you did not join before.  Glad to have you  as a member.  Sure would like to know more about your original Spencer and how you set it up to shoot.  Conversion kit?  Which one/maker.  Would make a great new topic.  If you have the time, would like a blow by blow description of how you set up your original to get it to shoot ???centerfire rounds???

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.

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.
