Maybe getting my Spencer soon.
« on: April 03, 2021, 10:38:27 PM »
I happened to be at my LGS picking up my modern Bolt Action Rifle.  As I was waiting around I happened to look at a gun rack and lo and behold there was a Chiappa Spencer in 44-40.  Maybe I will breakdown and buy it next week and then I will be an official member of the Spence Shooting Society.   ;D

Forgot to ask.  Is there a vendor that has the Blakslee box for sale?  I will be looking for one for 44-40 cartridges.

Thank you for the information.  I will look into C&C Sutlery.

Ordered a Blakeslee Cartridge Box from C&C.  Maybe it isn't an original, but it will work until I save enough money for one.

Brought my Spencer home, now I will have to find some ammo for it.  44-40 is really Scarce.

My Blakeslee Cartridge Box from C&C Sutlery was delivered and it is a fairly good reproduction.  Only one of the tubes was in bad shape from the soldering and I was able to use a file to fix it up.
