Hello All. I am new here to the SSS but I have already learned and incredible amount of info from all of your posts. I have tried to send this message several times but my photos did not post and hence the message did not post either. First, I want to thank Two Flints for helping me identify which unit this Spencer was most likely issued to - the 2nd NYS Vol Cav. When I first tried to post this I was asking what brass I should get for this model. After reading almost all the posts here and some other sites and measuring the muzzle (groove = .537, lands = .524) I figured I had an original 1860 barrel (it is 22" in length) and so I went ahead and ordered the 56-56 brass. If anybody thinks I made a bad call on the size, please let me know.
What a great group you all have!
