Ran across this meme.
As an avid rail fan, and a lifetime of listening to stories, I thought the allegory was spot on.

Thanks for your effort:

I presume you are working on original Spencer receiver dimensions. 
Certain reproductions vary visibly from originals.

Please identify your receiver(s) by model and any other important aspects such as caliber, modifications, etc.  Many originals have been reworked and there have been reported receiver external dimensional variations as models arose.   

These include documented differences involving receiver widths of up to approximately .125" and front to rear and top to bottom tapers.  As far as I know, internal main dim's seem consistent, with minor differences related to extractor and ctg. cutoff variations. 

There have been examples of original Spencers with upper block dimensional differences that allowed rimfire ctg cycling and firing, but would not allow modern standard dimension center fire conversion blocks without adding/ removing several thousandths of metal from the upper block face and rear surfaces.

Sporter receivers were sometimes thinner to reduce weight. 

As Arizona Trooper posted: "One can find just about anything on a Spencer." 

I do not know of CAD animated files for Spencer's.  I have seen them for lever action/falling block action rifles that included animation of parts relationships and interferences detection.

Somewhere in this Forum are posts with perhaps AUTOCAD color line drawings of various mechanical aspects related to cycling issues. 

All the best,
El Supremo/Kevin Tinny

You are in our thoughts and prayers.  Take care of yourself!

Thanks, had appointment at Heart Dr today, Heather said despite my set back I am really doing good, slight med change, they want to slow my heart beat down some, good thing is even if it is a bit fast it don't get really faster after carrying 2-3 loads of groceries in up the stairs or stuff like that.   Doing good, just impatient about the time it's taking, considering in 2019 by all rights you guys should have came up for lunch and found no lunch and me dead.   I had several angina attacks I passed off as acid reflux like I did at the event that September, this time there were witnesses and they believed me, "I'll sit, drink some iced tea and rest a few minutes and I'll be fine."  Went right back in the heat slinging ovens and got away with it. ::)

BTW I have had 3 cousins younger than me drop over dead with a heart attack with no idea anything was wrong, last one was only 57 and it happened 5 days before Christmas in front of his wife and 5 year old grandson.   I'm counting my blessings,  I had a full work up in Sept of 2015 and it was acid reflux then from a narrowed esophagus they fixed, same symptoms so I figured it was the same.

Someone asked for Spencer receiver dimensions. I have most of the drawing made. I will try to get a pic up of it when I figure out how to use the new computer.
My old one fried itself.
Now I'm redoing passwords and other stuff. and learning the new system. But the new computer is fast.
And the Spencer is almost finished. Just have to put it back together.

I will have one for sale at the Grand Muster.  Like new condition. This is a sweet carbine, a match winner, only selling it to make room in the safe for a Shiloh.  $900 

Pictures and details in the thread below.

First time selling at a local [35 mi each way] gunshow this past weekend. Met some nice folks selling next to me and while it was slow at times it was ok. Talked to a bunch of folks and saw a couple of guys that I’ve worked with for 30 years but haven’t seen them since I retired. Grossed almost $400.00 worth of mostly reloading stuff that was given to me or stuff that I didn’t need anymore. A guy who bought 100.00 worth of stuff from me came back to show me a knife he had bought for ‘15’, I asked 1500.00, he said no- 15 dollars. It was a 4 inch blade Randall with a brass guard, stag grips and a worn sheath. Still had the factory edge on it, blade was immaculate. I’m sure it’s worth a lot more than 15.00. Standing around is hard work, Saturday was awful hot but Sunday was ok. Wouldn’t want to do that every weekend.
