I agree about "Valdez is Coming". I'd also like it if the main character didn't wear a buscadero (sp?) rig with his pistol hanging down to his knee. LOL

I'd also like to see "Rio Bravo" done without the 1950s Hollywood style. The story told with more authentic clothing, guns, holsters, and saddles would be a big improvement. Always liked the story but the style of it bothered me.

The Barracks / Many thanks

Spencer Shooting Society / Re: Serial number question
« Last post by Two Flints on August 06, 2022, 08:03:23 AM »
I see a Spencer serial #9824, #9835, and #9838 listed as a Spencer Rifles.  Randomly, Four digit serial #s were intermixed as rifles and carbines, with more rifle designations listed. 

Your serial #9822 looks to be a Spencer Carbine.  The serial # also appears on the underside of the barrel under the wooden forearm.  Ask the seller to check if the serial # found there is the same as on the receiver.

Two Flints  BTW, Check Dave Taylor's Civil War Antiques for Spencer offerings.

Spencer Shooting Society / Serial number question
« Last post by Nlneff on August 06, 2022, 05:12:37 AM »
I was looking at a different Spencer here, serial number 9822 There is damage where the serial number is listed, so I'm a bit skeptical of that,  But were carbine in this range even built?   Any information will be appreciated, and I understand that precise info is not available often.

I  totally understand your position, but I also enjoy movies. Since no one in Hollywood is listening anyway, it's just a thought exercise and for fun. I enjoy speculating, so we'll imagine that any remakes are being done well. We're just daydreaming, but it's our daydream, so we can dream the way we want. I'm with you about modern Hollywood, though.
